Optimize JPG's - Quick Tip


Posted by VasiaUVI | Posted in | Posted on Wednesday, March 10, 2010

If you want to optimize your large JPG picture you can use the Imagemagick program which is installed by default in Ubuntu 9.10. From Gnome-Terminal go in your folder where you keep your pictures, for example
cd /home/user/Pictures 
and for optimize only one picture write
mogrify -quality 85 Picture.jpg 
For optimizing all the pictures in that folder write
mogrify -quality 85 *.jpg 

85 reprezents the quality of the pictures.

Good luck!

Download Multiple Files With Wget

From some time I read the Full Circle Magazine and I like it. The thing is that you have to download a pdf file to read this magazine but this is not an issue from my point of view.

Today I decided to download all the Full Circle Magazine *.pdf files just to have them on my computer, like a collection or something like that. The problem was that there are until now are 34 magazines and downloading one by one it's a little bit time consuming.

Two Pane File Manager for Linux that I Use

Every day at work I use only Total Commander to manage files, to upload/download files on/from our servers, etc., and when I'm coming home and work on Ubuntu Linux I use GNOME Commander.

Let me explain a little bit how to install GNOME Commander on your system and to tell you about some other alternatives if maybe you don't like this application.

Open a terminal and write this line:
sudo apt-get install gnome-commander
After this you have to enter your password and the application will install. It's that simple!

Other two pane files managers that you can install are:
sudo apt-get install krusader

sudo apt-get install bsc

Tux Commander

Hope that you will like one of this for applications!
You can also read this list with this kind of applications.
