Batch Resize Images

I was searching for a tool to scale images batch wise in Ubuntu and it seems that ImageMagick is just the one for it. Here's how you can get it working as well.

Step1: install ImageMagick

$ sudo apt-get install imagemagick

Step2: go to the images folder and type

$ mogrify -sample 1280 x 800 *.JPG

Here 1280 x 800 is the final size you want and *.JPG is the file set.
