brew install imagemagick And severa

`brew install imagemagick`

And several minutes later I see "Pouring poppler..." and... Look, I know ImageMagick has a lot of dependencies because modern image file formats are shit, but holy crap. All I wanted to do was "for a in *.jpg; do convert -geometry 50% $a.jpg `basename $a jpg`_small.jpg; done"

there's probably an IM ./config for getting subsets. (although IM has always been big and twitchy).

If you're stuck in the mac ecosystem, Flying Meat's Retrobatch[Wiki] is a great image processor. I know the developer, and he's a nice guy, and has been doing Mac programming back when software was expected to be good. There's also Automator[Wiki](built-in) but I've never enjoyed using it.

I did get it eventually. And this was probably Homebrew just updating everything or something.

And I know how to use Bash, trying to figure out how to use Automator to drive... who knows what, seems wrong.

(Don't get me started on Zsh or whatever it is that they keep trying to foist on me with the completely fucking broken autocomplete behavior...)
