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
I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

1) Download the files to your computer.
2) Download the trial version of FIREWORKS from MACROMEDIA.COM
3) Click FILE, BATCH PROCESS
4) Select ALL .BMP files and click NEXT
5) Click EXPORT and ADD>
6) Select Settings for JPEG and click NEXT
7) Select OUTPUT location
8) Click BATCH
9) Find something  useful to do for an hour.

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 (REFRESH)!

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 refresh set to on in your browser!

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

mogrify -format jpg *.bmp
