Whatever it is, it's not about "coding"

Batch image manipulation

I’d like to be able to resize a set of image files using some command line tool. I am trying Image Converter Plus. Another option is ImageMagick. Download ImageMagick.

Turns out the latest version does not work in Windows XP. Invoking convert results in error:

convert: missing an image filename 'file.jpg'.

I have also tried version 5.5.7, following this advice. This does not work either.

And to get 5.5.7 to work I had to rename the Windows version of convert because of the error:

Must specify a file system 

encountered when attempting to use convert.exe version 5.5.7.

Image Converter Plus is a piece of crap — and is only a one day trial.
