Wiki world

As part of my foray into the wiki world of common good, I've written a small, but effective little script for automating conversion and reduction of JPG format images to PNG images of a specific size, using a tool called ImageMagick:
for img in `ls *.jpg`
baseimg=`echo $img | sed s/\.jpg/\.png/`
convert $img -resize '300x300>' $baseimg
