What is the SIPS equivalent in Linux / Unix?

If you’re used to the OSX sips utility to convert and resize images, you might be surprised when you are on a linux box and realize that utility is not available. According to the OS X man page, SIPS is: sips — scriptable image processing system. On unix and linux there are some great alternatives, but the one I like to use is imagemagick ( http://www.imagemagick.org/script/index.php ) According to their site: Use ImageMagick to convert, edit, or compose bitmap images in a variety of formats. In addition, resize, rotate, shear, distort or transform images automagically. How to Geek has a good blog post showing how to use the convert utility to change image sizes easily: The syntax is something like this: convert example.png -resize 200×100 example.png
