Yes, "convert" does fine for me.
Also you might want to try the program "jpegtran." (In debian this comes
in the package libjpeg-progs, so maybe there is an rpm by that name?) This
package can rotate jpegs by increments of 90 degrees - very importantly,
*without* decompressing and recompressing them at all... this preserves

I am bringing files from several different platforms (primarily Mac
and Windows) on to my linux box and preparing them for the www server.
One problem is that various files/transfer programs/compression programs
on these platforms preserve capitalizatin of the files as they were
on the original machine.
For uniformity, I would like all of my file names/extensions to be in
all lower case. Is there a utility/simple shell script that I
could use to convert filenames from mixed case to lower? It is a
pain having to mv all of them.
Thanks a lot in advance.
