Question How to rescale multiple image files?

Been searching here and Google without much success, though this has to be common enough that I'm sure I'm just not using the right terminology.

I'm wondering if there's a way to use GIMP to rescale/resize multiple image files at once? Or if another tool can be used to do it? I'm just beginning to get into photo/image manipulation on Linux, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

I use "mogrify" (it's part of the ImageMagick package). You can incorporate it into a quick script, or simply use it on its own.

For example:
for name in *.jpg
 mogrify -resize 128x128 "$(name)"
Or you could use mogrify -resize 128x128 *.jpg. The former is more flexible.
