What Others Think

I think there's a typo in your command. $i contains a name xyz.JPG, therefore basename should have .JPG in it. `basename $i .JPG` Besides, if you're using bash, you can drop the basename altogether: ${i%.JPG}-klein.png Take variable i and remove from the end .JPG for i in *.JPG; do convert -resize 1000x1000 -quality 85 $i ${i%.JPG}-klein.png; done
