I had to do a quick resize of a directory full of jpg's so that I could burn then to CD, so that
a bunch of friends could watch them on a TV via a DVD player.
The problem was that the originals were large and taking too long to load - so (after installing
nigel@laptop:~$ cd path_to_dir
nigel@laptop:~/path_of_dir$ for i in *.jpg; do montage -geometry 800x603 -background black
-quality 95 $i -$i; done
(note: the above is all on one line).
You can change some of the parameters such as the quality. The '-background back' is a nice trick
so that 'portrait' pics have a black background that is invisible when viewed on a TV screen. The
'-geometry 800x603' was acquired by resizing one of my cameras jpg's in the Gimp.
This one-liner will make copies of your originals and prefixing them with a hyphen (-$i
