Image magic with imagemagick

Imagemagick is a set of image manipulation tools, which work from the shell.

I typically use it to change some files from one format to another:

hendry@bogrund-14:~/mail-attachments$ for i in $(ls *.png); do echo convert $i $(basename $i png)eps; done
convert GUIreference.png GUIreference.eps
convert JTreereference.png JTreereference.eps
convert Overviewofsubsystems.png Overviewofsubsystems.eps
convert Selectorreference.png Selectorreference.eps
convert Selectorsequence.png Selectorsequence.eps
convert gui_to_fileio.png gui_to_fileio.eps

Remove echo for it to run…

Here is cool tip to merge / append / join all the images into one file with convert.

convert 6600-opera-1.jpg 6600-opera-2.jpg 6600-opera-3.jpg +append all.jpg
