Resizing images with Mogrify

You shot some photos but they have a big resolution and take time to upload online, here is a fast way to scale them from the terminal using Mogrify. Mogrify comes by default on Fedora.

As root type:
# mogrify -path /home/user/example -resize 1000x1000 /home/user/example

    Why would you run mogrify as root?

    • I don’t know, I learned that way at first. At that time I had files that only could be views by users!

    “convert” worked better for me

    cd /path/to/file
    convert inputfile -resize 301×200 outputfile
