I was attempting to find a quick, lightweight way to resize images on my Pinebook Pro so that I could use them in blog posts. I stumbled across Imagemagick. It's a slick little CLI utility that even has HEIF support!

I was dreading the thought of opening GIMP on this laptop, so I'm glad I found something much less... intense.



@consoleaccess FYI its also a pretty robust image processing library with bindings in many scripting languages

@splatt9990 I've been looking at the documentation, and it's insane the amount that this utility can do. I really only need it for image resizing at the moment, but it's good to know that it can do plenty more if the need arises.

@consoleaccess you know those meme generator websites? Pretty much just a small wrapper around imagemagick
