\label{Supported Image Formats}

Listed here are the various file formats supported
by ImageMagick.  The Format is the image format identifier and is typically
used as the image file extension (e.g. image.png for the PNG image format).
The mode shows the type of support: r = read; w = write; + = multi-image files.
So for example, a mode of rw+ means ImageMagick can read, write, and save more
than one image of a sequence to the same blob or file.  Finally the description
tells what the image format is in case you cannot tell directly from the
format identifier (e.g. 8BIM is the Photoshop resource format).
