Image Editing Tools Suggestions Please


Hi Folks,
Could u please suggest some good image editing software that is available for red-hat? I need to basically resize the images clicked on my digital camera. They are around 1 MB each. I need to format them for uploading them onto Yahoo Photos.

Also need a software that will create thumbnails of images.

Thanks

So ImageMagick is for you...

ImageMagick is GREAT software to editing images. Also it comes with a 'convert' command that running in console. By using 'convert' command, you can easily change the sizes, colors, effects and all settings of thousands pictures' in one time... It is so powerful tool when used with BASH scripting...

Take a look at: http://www.imagemagick.org

You can find how to use 'convert' command in the website...

If you are using KDE, kpaint will let you resize pictures.
The GIMP, a more comprehensive graphics tool, will do that for you, too.

Good luck,

I have KDE, but don't have GIMP or KPaint installed.

Hmm... I'd understand that The GIMP may not be found on your system but kpaint is part of the KDE multimedia package. Have you tried typing "kpaint" from the terminal?

Red Hat is outdated, switch to something newer (Fedora Core 2, Mandrake 10.1 Community) if you want the latest stuff...or you are going to have to upgrade everything yourself

For what it's worth I used ImageMagick to automate the creation of thumbnails for links on my CO's intranet site.

Ibm had a nice write up on it http://www-106.ibm.com/developerwork...af/?ca=dnt-428
