Wand itself can be installed from PyPI using easy_install or pip:
$ easy_install Wand # or $ pip install Wand
Wand is a Python binding of ImageMagick, so you have to install it as well:
If you’re using Linux distributions based on Debian like Ubuntu, it can be easily installed using APT:
$ sudo apt-get install libmagickwand-dev
If you’re using Linux distributions based on Redhat like Fedora or CentOS, it can be installed using Yum:
$ yum update $ yum install ImageMagick-devel
$ brew install imagemagick
$ sudo port install imagemagick
You could build ImageMagick by yourself, but it requires a build tool chain like Visual Studio to compile it. The easiest way is simply downloading a prebuilt binary of ImageMagick for your architecture (win32 or win64).
You can download it from the following link:
Choose a binary for your architecture:
Note that you have to check Install development headers and libraries for C and C++ to make Wand able to link to it.
Lastly you have to set MAGICK_HOME environment variable to the path of ImageMagick (e.g. C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.7.7-Q16). You can set it in Computer ‣ Properties ‣ Advanced system settings ‣ Advanced ‣ Environment Variables....
