ImageMagick “dyld: Library not loaded” Libfreetype.6.dylib

I was trying to install ImageMagick recently using HomeBrew, I was able to install the software however when I tried to run any commands I was receiving the error

ImageMagick reported an error: dyld: Library not loaded: 
/opt/local/lib/libfreetype.6.dylib Referenced from: 
/opt/local/bin/convert Reason: Incompatible library version: 
convert requires version 14.0.0 or later, but 
libfreetype.6.dylibprovides version 10.0.0

I tried to update a whole bunch of things but struggled for a few days, the solution ended up being the need to update X11 (XQuartz). I installed the update, restarted my Macbook and the issue was fixed. The download is sizeable but it is definitely the solution to the problem.

If you’re having any trouble with it feel free to post in the comments below.
