  • You can get the mean value for the colours in an image. Then you can determine, in general, how dark or bright is the image and run some other actions based on that. I'll recommend to readjust the brightness of the images using +sigmoidal-contrast option of imagemagick convert command. Show Sample Output

    convert image.jpg -resize 1x1 txt: | tail -1 | awk '{gsub(/[,\)]/," "); print $3+$4+$5}'

  • Scan pages in, clean them up in an image editor, save to individual files. Use this command to convert each page to PDF. Combine in Acrobat Professional, and use the built-in OCR with the "Searchable Image (Exact)" option. Gives excellent image quality and file size (avoids awful JPEG image recompression that Acrobat and other OCR systems tend to do.)

    convert pagexxx.png -filter Cubic -resize 200% -threshold 50% -compress Group4 pagexxx.tiff; tiff2pdf -z -p letter -ro -x 1200 -y 1200 -o pagexxx.pdf pagexxx.tiff

  • This command will resize an image (keeping the aspect ratio) to a specific resolution, meaning the resulting image will never be smaller than this resolution. For example, if we have a 2048x1000 image, the output would be 1229x600, not 1024x600 or 1024x500. Same thing for the height, if the image is 2000x1200, the output would be 1024x614.

    convert -resize '1024x600^' image.jpg small-image.jpg

  • This command clones an image three times and creates a 'tile' image that can be used for a repeating pattern wallpaper. Add 'rm $f $of $off' to the end for cleanup (command was too long to submit with it). See this link for an example: http://meathive.deviantart.com/art/Easy-Photography-Hack-314846774

    goWall() { if [ $# -ne 1 ]; then echo 'goWall image';return;fi;w=w.jpg;o="$1";f="$1"-f;of="$1"-af;off="$1"-aff;convert "$1" -flop $f;montage -geometry +0+0 -tile 2x "$1" $f $of;convert $of -flip $off;montage -geometry +0+0 -tile 1x $of $off $w }

  • (relies on 'imagemagick') This command will convert all .pdf files in a directory into a 800px (wide or height, whichever is smaller) image (with the aspect ratio kept) .jpg. If the file is named 'example1.pdf' it will be named 'example1.jpg' when it is complete. This is a VERY worthwhile command! People pay hundreds of dollars for this in the Windows world. My .jpg files average between 150kB to 300kB, but your's may differ. Show Sample Output

    for file in `ls *.pdf`; do convert -verbose -colorspace RGB -resize 800 -interlace none -density 300 -quality 80 $file `echo $file | sed 's/\.pdf$/\.jpg/'`; done
