>                 Key: TIKA-2509
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2509
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: ocr
>    Affects Versions: 1.16, 1.17
>            Reporter: Richard Jones
>            Assignee: Dave Meikle
>            Priority: Major
> The TesseractOCRParser class uses the configured ImageMagickPath in method hasImageMagick
to determine whether ImageMagick is present.  Ref:
> String ImageMagick = config.getImageMagickPath() + getImageMagickProg();
> BUT then completely ignores the configured path in the processImage method meaning ImageMagick
has to be present on system path (so what's the point of the ImageMagickPath config setting).
> The doOCR method on the other hand DOES use the configured tesseractPath.
> Incidentally I notice there is no equivalent PythonPath config setting even though Python
is attempted to be found/used.
> Some consistency would be appreciated so that ImageMagick and Python don't have to be
present on the system path.  i.e. follow the model already in place for finding/using Tesseract.
