Functions

Psst. Open beta.

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:

  • » The open beta is running a copy of the database that will not carry over to the final version. Don't post anything you don't mind losing.
  • » If you wish to use your user account, you will probably need to reset your password.
Your feedback is appreciated via the form on the beta page. Thanks! -Jon & CLFU Team

The mogrify command is also part of the ImageMagick suite, and is made to make changes to files in place.

mogrify -resize 852x480 ./*.png

Requires ImageMagick to be installed; mogrify is the lesser-known sibling to convert -- it overwrites your original images, but allows you to work on batches of files without resorting to a loop.

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

I can't see them. Am I being an idiot as usual? Or how do I see the alternatives? FF on opensuse/KDE BTW.

In case you don't want to overwrite orginals:

mkdir -p resize && for f in *.png; do convert "$f" -resize 852x480 resize/"$f"; done
