### How to convert a set of eps pictures to jpg format?

If you have a linux system with ImageMagick installed this is easy.

While I refer to jpg and eps files in this howto, conversion between any two formats that ImageMagick supports is similar.

Let us say you have a directory full of eps files along with non eps files. A simple shell script using "sed" will do the trick

for i in *.eps
do
prefix=echo $i | sed 's/\.eps//' suffix=".jpg" newfile=echo "$prefix$suffix" convert -density 300 -units PixelsPerInch$i \$newfile
done
