i need to convert png files to tiff. Is there an easy way to do so in Ubuntu 14.04? Thanks!

  • Have you tried GIMP? It's a little tricky to use, but a good program for image editing and converting. May 8, 2015 at 12:54
  • askubuntu.com/questions/60401/… commandline command is "convert"

  • You don't need to use batch, but rather XnConvert.

Install imagemagick:

sudo apt-get install imagemagick

An a simple command:

convert <your_png> out.tiff

Or for all files in your folder:

for f in *.png; do convert "$f" "${f%%.*}.tiff"; done

Try convert:

convert blah.png blah.tiff

If you don't have it, try:

sudo apt-get install graphicsmagick-imagemagick-compat

    Thanks a lot! Installing graphicsmagick-imagemagick-compat worked!
