Image processing on the console



GIMP isn’t the only option for photo manipulation. ImageMagick, a collection of command-line programs for image processing, can help you process multiple images in one go.

The holidays are over and your new digital camera is bursting at the seams. Before setting up a photo gallery on your website, you need to sort through the photos and put together a few preview shots. Normally, you would fire up GIMP, open a single photo, process it, resize it, and then save it, repeating this process until you have sorted through all your photos. This method could eat up hours of your busy weekend.
