there you are, you have wrongly mixed " and ' . don't you use some editor with syntax higlighting ?!

There you are you did some basic syntax errors as deresh mentioned in using " and '.
I am using Editplus .i downloaded as a trail version and it is working after the time limit also
exec("/usr/local/bin/convert " . escapeshellarg($im_path . $row->ImageFile) . ' -resize ' . escapeshellarg($Thumb_Width . 'x' . $Thumb_Height . '>') . ' +profile "*" ' . ' -crop '. escapeshellarg($Thumb_Width . 'x' . $Thumb_Height . '+0+0').' +repage -bordercolor red  -border 1 -bordercolor white -border 4 -bordercolor green -background black \\( +clone -shadow 60x4+4+4 \\) +swap  -background blue -flatten  +repage -quality 98 '.escapeshellarg($im_path . 'vita/' . $row->ImageFile), $x, $result);
