hi sara,
i think i built imagemagick from source with the ./configure 
--enable-shared flag
i think the advice about changing the .info file in fink came after i 
had already built imagemagick.
to tell the truth, being a newbie to OSX and terminal there maybe bits 
and pieces of half installed versions of imagemagick all over my 
machine! i could have installed imagemagick with the --disabled-shared 
in fink then found out about --enable-shared and then reinstalled from 

I checked the .info file for imagemagick in fink and it is indeed 
intact with the --disable-shared.

do you have libmagick.dylib files in your /usr/local/lib/folder?

have you tried to build from source with the ./configure 
--enable-shared flag?
