Process BMP

Recommended Posts

Ok, I'll hit you straight with my problem

I have 1200+ images on my website that are bmp files.

How can I convert them to jpg.

ive heard about processing them but from what Ive read its really complicated, unless someone can point me to a prewritten script

Any help would be great

Thanks

What you dont dont need to do that!

You can convert them with gd. However it'll taker a long a time to convert 1200+ bitmaps! Especially if they are large file sizes!

Here is a old BMP conversion script I wrote sometime ago! It runs from the browser doing a ([b]REFRESH[/b])!

Just set the configuration values at the top, upload it to your server, then call it from your browser and wait until it is done!

Note: make sure you have [b]refresh[/b] set to [b]on[/b] in your browser!

me!

If you have ImageMagick installed on the server you can convert them with a command like so:

[code]mogrify -format jpg *.bmp[/code]
