Convert .bmp, .gif to .jpg

I have about 1000-images, few are in .bmp, .gif

How can I convert all of them to .jpg in one-shot? All images are stored in a single-directory

I have no experience for images.

Your best bet is Mihov Image Resizer (http://www.imageresizer.com/) - despite the name, it also batch-converts images.

Another great tool, but a bit harder to use, is Image Magick (http://www.imagemagick.org/)

used imagerezier.com to batch-convert images. worked fine, but the problem is that it adds extension "jpg" in addition to ".bmp".

For instance, consider file-name: "Picture.bmp", after conversion it becomes "Picture.bmp.jpg", but I want the name to be "Picture.jpg", as the file-path has been hard-coded in the program(Custom-software) as "filename.jpg"

How can this be acheived?

thanks

Hi whazup45,

Irfanview is free and can batch convert and rename: Go to File>batch Coversion/Rename and set your options there.

I just used irfanview to convert Picture.bmp to Picture.jpg. Choose the option "batch conversion". If they are all in the same directory, just click "add all" in the options and set what format you want to convert to and click "start". Specify the same or another directory for the converted images.

If you download the bulk renamer utility at http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk, you can use it to easily rename those files.

Simply install and run the program, go to the directory where your files are located, and in the Removals section, enter .bmp as the characters to be removed. Then hit rename, and you're good to go.

Sorry about the problem.

whazup, send me an email at <Removed by RomMod> - I thought it looked quite interesteing so I wrote a little app to do this for you.

Give the command line tool a directory name the type of file to change from and the type to convert to and it will do it.

WTF?

Changing the extension doesn't change what the file is! I could change ISO to be Zip but thats not going to zip it!

that is exactly what I thought, but read whazup's comment, he converted them but found he had .bmp.jpg extensions so he needed to rename them after the conversion.
