NAME
       identify  -  describes  the  format  and characteristics of one or more
       image files.

SYNOPSIS
       identify [options] input-file

OVERVIEW
       The identify program is a member of the ImageMagick(1) suite of  tools.
       It describes the format and characteristics of one or more image files.
       It also reports if(3,n) an image is incomplete or corrupt.  The  information
       returned includes the image number, the file(1,n) name, the width and height
       of the image, whether the image is colormapped or not,  the  number  of
       colors  in(1,8)  the  image, the number of bytes in(1,8) the image, the format of
       the image (JPEG, PNM, etc.), and finally the number of seconds it  took
       to  read(2,n,1 builtins) and process the image. Many more attributes are available with
       the verbose option.
