I can only access ImageMagick as root using sudo.

This works:
sudo convert ...

But this does NOT work:
convert ...

How can I make ImageMagick available without using sudo?

I run FreeBSD.

You can always add setuid to convert.

But - what does it mean "this does NOT work"? What output do you get when running "convert" as normal user without sudo?
