in reply to batch converting images with image::magick?

Depending on how many images you plan to be converting, you may wish to look at alternatives. I'll likely get accused of trolling or whatnot for this, but I was very not impressed by the speed of the image compression done by Image::Magick. You may be ok for compressing JPEG images (I didn't try those), but compression of TIFF images was completely not acceptable IMHO. Converting 5-page documents from Group III TIFF to the latest flavor of TIFF took 3-4 seconds each. For my 850,000 image conversion, that would have taken approximately a month of raw processing. Ugh!

Just a word of warning. ++ to all the excellent suggestions above.

    I use ImageMagick in Windows and have it also as a stand alone app. Works great.

    Is Gimp-Perl doing similar things, or just utilities for the GIMP?
