How to convert .bmp to .jpg

Post by fearedbliss »

So I noticed that in Hellgate: London, the screenshots are saved in .bmp format, which are huge (14MB~) and are not compatible for upload on the forum. You can easily convert the image using ImageMagick's `mogrify` utility (also used in this post).

The following command will convert all the .bmp images in the current directory to the jpg format. A new image will be created containing the .jpg image. I was able to reduce my 14 MB screenshots to 1 MB ~:

Code: Select all

magick mogrify -format jpg *.bmp
