It's about 15 seconds:
convert myfile.png myfile.jpg; rm myfile.png
I think there's an ImageMagic toolset, which includes convert, for
Windows too. It's 15 seconds.
All command line driven, right? That's if I
follow the web page
correctly. Interesting that there's an iOS package. Just pure
curiosity, I wonder if anyone is doing an Android package. Hmmmmm, that
reminds me, I still have to figure out how to root my Nexus 7. I tried
to stumble my way through it a few months ago, but had to get other
things finished and never got back to it.
It looks like the Mac version is only for Mavericks, which I'm not
planning on updating to.
But, as I've said, command line stuff just isn't my thing, anymore. :-)
The nice thing about computers is everyone has the chance to find what
fits them, although it does seem Apple and MS seems to limit that with
each new OS release.
Let's say the Inkscape programmers added a conversion to jpg.
one more lump of code that could have bugs or security violations. The
more complex and entangled a program gets, the more bug-prone it
Since this is open-source, can't you just use code that's already
written and bug free? Obviously, the UI part would have to be written
I use claws-mail (for now), but because it uses so many libraries
does so many things for so many people, it has a bug that, after I
access my inbox, the mouse disappears everytime a popup happens, *on
any application*. I'm thinking of switching to the ultra-simplicity of
mutt so this stuff doesn't happen.
I thought claws-mail had a Mac version, but
I guess not.
How many times a day do you need to export to .png? Multiply that by
seconds. Now ask yourself if that time is worth having a featureful yet
It's the other way around. :-) Convert to JPG. For me, when
conversions, it's usually a folder full of files, and when I did do
them, I'd probably have to look the code up all over again! LOL So for
me, it's simpler to use a GUI program to do it.
