Hi,

Everyone uses digital cameras, but I am surprised I am having finding some decent software to do this - my camera outputs jpg files and i need some way to reduce the image into a smaller size, i used a thumbnail creator before when I used windows, but now I have switched to fedora, I am having problems finding software to do this. I got ahold of one, but it only done TIFF format, which was not helpful.

Anyone know of the best way to do this?

Thanks

Robert

Not sure I understand. Nautilus shows thumbnails here and always has! I have both f-spot and gThumb installed. If you're stuck with KDE I can't help you.

Thanks for the reply Wayne, not sure I explained things clearly, all I am looking for is a piece of software to reduce a 3mb jpg file to something around 500-600kb in the same format, previously I used a thumnail creator for windows, but do not have access to that anymore

For Gnome you can see what is available here:

Another image converter is XNView: http://www.xnview.com/

Sorry, don't know anything about the windows app you mentioned, I haven't used windows since 1994. I used to use PMView for OS/2 though.

You could try the gimp. Open the image you want to make a thumbnail of go to image, then scale image, and type in the size of the thumbnail you want.

Even gThumb can do that and is quicker to load than Gimp :)

If you want to do a large number of files, you could use convert (http://www.imagemagick.org/script/convert.php).
(May require "yum install ImageMagick".)

XNView does batch convert/batch rename.

I used to use a script around "convert", which is part of ImageMagick, but now my gallery software does it for me automatically.
