Please always provide your Imagemagick version and platform/OS when asking questions. Also post your input PNG so we can test with it.

Note that your command should properly read the input first. IM 7 is less forgiving that IM 6.

Code: Select all

magick in.png -background none -resize 128x128 -density 128x128 out.ico

This command works fine for me on IM 7.0.8.44 Q16 HDRI Mac OSX Sierra. Sorry, I do not use Windows.

Code: Select all

magick in.png -background none -resize 128x128 -density 128x128 out.ico
Do you get those artifacts for all PNG files or just that one?

Have you tried upgrading to IM 7.0.8.45?

Is your version of libpng current? Use

Code: Select all

convert -list format
and look at the end of the line for PNG to see the version. Mine is libpng 1.6.36

@activat: when you report problems, please link to the actual input and output files, eg out.ico. Supplying a link to a screenshot make by a program such as IrfanView isn't enough, because there might be a bug in IrfanView.
