Tip of the Podcast
- 1:15:44 Use imagemagick to quickly batch resize multiple images from the command line. First install imagemagick “sudo apt-get install imagemagick”. Then move to the directory containing the images you want to convert and run the following command: for i in $( ls *.jpg); do convert -resize 50% $i re_$i; done. You could choose a different percentage if so desired, or even specify a specific ratio of say 640 x 480 if wanted.
