  1. This works very well. however using the convert method creates multiple images. One which is actually required and the rest is junk. I guess there is another flag to be set to create just one output.


    1. You can get rid of the junk file by suffixing your “convert” or “mogrify” command with “+0+0,” as in “mogrify -crop 800×1200+0+0 pict.jpg.” It crops from top left and cuts (and disposes of) the image, leaving no “chopped-off” junk files. (Redundant, ‘ent I?)

  2. Many thanks to you. I couldn’t use β€œconvert” (β€œchopped-off” always remain), but β€œmogrify” works perfectly.
