Image Converters: What do you use?

Hello Fedora community,

I was wondering, which tools (GUI / CLI) you are using to convert image formats (e.g. jpg → png). I’m coming from Mac, where you can just right-click an image and use a small GUI window to convert it into different formats. On my initial search, I couldn’t find any simple GUI tool like that on Linux.

So, I’ve got two questions:

  1. What’s your current workflow for converting images from one format to another?
  2. Would you be interested in using a native GNOME GUI tool for converting images?

Thanks for your help.

i use gimp for this kind of stuff

it can be a good option.

I like ImageMagick for this. It includes a convert command which, at its simplest is

convert myimage.png myimage.jpg

It contains a bunch of other commands enabling you to quickly modify an image by command line.
IMHO it’s worth investigating. This seems like a reasonably clear introduction.
