Yeah – I like that too – as a matter of fact, I have a shell script that does this…
# An Easy command to use the convert command. Makes sure that the rename problem don't happen
if [ ! -d "Out" ]; then
if [ $# -eq 2 ] ; then
for i in $sel; do
echo -n "Converting $i ... "
convert $1 $i Out/$i
About the Resample/Resize issue – I am not sure either.
