LICENSE first commit 6 months ago pruning 6 months ago removing m4a as a video extension .. it's an audio extension, haem 6 months ago


a bash script that helps you making thumbnails from any pictures or video files

usage <filename>

and it will create a thumbnail in the folder where you are calling


if you wanna use it on many files, just use find :

find -type f -exec {} \;

more demos

make single thumb in the current dir (300 x 300 px) : "IMG_6406.cr2";

make single 500x500 thumb in the current dir : "IMG_6406.cr2" "500x500";

loads of thumbs in the current dir :

find -type f -iname "*.jpg" -exec {} \;

loads of 500x500 thumbs in the current dir :

find -type f -iname "*.jpg" -exec {} "500x500"\;

loads of thumbs from a specific input folder :

find /media/canon/ -type f -iname "*.jpg" -exec {} \;

rough input extensions selection, using find :

find -type f ( -iname "*.mov" -o -iname "*.mp4" -o -iname "*.jpg" -o -iname "*.jpeg" -o -iname "*.gif" -o -iname "*.dng" -o -iname "*.cr2" -o -iname "*.tif" -o -iname "*.tiff" \) -exec {} \;
