What Others Think

nice command, but at what lossy cost?

You can also resize (i.e: 50% ) all your .jpg in a directory like this mogrify -sample 50% *.jpg

By the way, do you think this might be a better solution? find . -maxdepth 1 -iregex ".*\.jpe?g" -exec convert {} -resize WxH {} \; I am not really sure. Thanks.
