Batch resizing your photo’s in Linux

In the old days when I still used Windows 🙂 I used a program called Fast Image Resizer to resize batches of photo’s and although I can still run this along with the rest of my Windows programs using Wine I thought i’d investigate a Linux equivalent. Well the answer is ImageMagick !
I should probably point out that once you have installed ImageMagick dont bother looking for an entry in the program list or even try typing ImageMagick into a Terminal because you won’t find anything 🙂 It seems what you type relates to what you want to do, for instance I needed to resize some images so the first command would be;
convert -resize WidthXHeight source destination
or convert -resize 320×240 /home/jazzy/test.jpg /home/jazzy/convert/test.jpg
If you have many files use the command;
mogrify -resize 320×240 *.jpg
in the mogrify example above leaving the source and destination blank uses the current folder.

  1. I found a free online image watermark tool called Batch Watermarker that can automate the whole process of image watermarking. If you are away from your PC and don’t want to download any software, you can just use this online version of watermarking tool for free. It’s quick and it’s easy to use.

    You can also download their full version of Batch Watermark software program if you want to watermark multiple image files in a folder with just a click of the mouse.
