ImageMagick Static Binaries for AWS Lambda
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Must be run on an Amazon Linux AMI that matches AWS Lambda's runtime
# As of Nov 23, 2015, this is Amazon Linux AMI 2014.09.2 x86_64 (ami-0c682c64)
# Lambda includes ImageMagick 6.7.8-9 preinstalled, so you need to prepend PATH
# with the folder containing these binaries in your Lambda function to ensure
# these newer binaries are used.
