One huge advantage of ImageMagick (IMHO) is that it can make images out of PDFs. Many clients want thumbnails of their pdfs so that they can link to that.
So, I rather naively told File.php that .pdf files were Images, hoping that a thumbnail would just be created. Doh!
But I did copy a pdf as a png (ludicrous I know) and lo and behold the system made a thumb out of it and it worked.
I am therefore suggesting that if a pdf is uploaded, the upload system is arranged to make a png or jpg copy of the pdf and store that as well so it can be used for link purposes. I think this would a a popular idea. I will try to present an example myself.

By the way, is the correct syntax with ImageMagick config
When to use the different type of config and what the arguments might be as as clear as mud.
