@findex imagemagick-types
@findex imagemagick-register-types
The function @code{imagemagick-types} returns a list of image file
extensions that your installation of ImageMagick supports. To enable
support, you must call the function @code{imagemagick-register-types}.
This enables Emacs to visit these file types in @code{image-mode}
(@pxref{File Conveniences,,, emacs, The GNU Emacs Manual}).
If your Emacs was not compiled with ImageMagick support, then
@code{imagemagick-types} will be undefined and
@code{imagemagick-register-types} will do nothing.
@vindex imagemagick-types-inhibit
The variable @code{imagemagick-types-inhibit} specifies a list of

may be overlap between image loaders in your Emacs installation, and
you may prefer to use a different one for a given image type (which

@c FIXME why are these uppercase when image-types is lower-case?

image types that you do @emph{not} want ImageMagick to handle. It is
a list of symbols, each of which has the same name as one of the
format tags used internally by ImageMagick (i.e., as
@code{imagemagick-types} returns). ImageMagick has a very broad
definition of what an image is, for example it includes such file
types as C files and HTML files. It is not appropriate to treat these
as images in Emacs. You can add any other ImageMagick type that you
wish to this list.
@ignore
@c I don't know what this means. I suspect it means eg loading jpg
@c images via libjpeg or ImageMagick. But it doesn't work.
@c If you don't have libjpeg support compiled in, you cannot
@c view jpeg images, even if you have imagemagick support:
@c http://debbugs.gnu.org/9045
@c And if you have both compiled in, then you always get
@c the libjpeg version:

For example, if you never want to use the ImageMagick loader to view
JPEG files, add @code{JPG} to this list. Note that ImageMagick often
distinguishes between several different types of a particular format
(e.g., @code{JPG}, @code{JPEG}, @code{PJPEG}, etc.), and you may need
to add all versions to this list.
@c Not sure this should even be in the manual at all.

similar to how GIF files work).

This has the same meaning as it does for GIF images (@pxref{GIF Images}),
i.e. it specifies which image to view inside an image bundle file format
