Is it true that this package is unable to be installed on v3.4.1? Is there an ETA on an update for this package? There are some useful functions that I would like to be able to use on my flow data.

Make sure ImageMagick is installed properly and can be found in default path.

I downloaded ImageMagick,


I moved the folders it downloaded to my applications folder. I don't know what you mean by default path. The install still isn't working, so I guess something still isn't right. I should note that v7.0 appears to be for MacSierra and I'm running El Capitan, so perhaps that is the issue.
