Hello Lamke,

EBImage is a Bioconductor package: please post on the Bioconductor 
mailing list.

The issue you are reporting is due to a recent modification of the 
ImageMagick API, on which EBImage relies to read/write images. We are 
currently fixing this issue. In the meanwhile, please use a previous 
version of ImageMagick (such as 6.5.x).

Hope this helps,
Best regards,

Gregoire Pau
