If you have hundreds or thousands of images that needed to be converted into a common output format (same resolution, aspect ratio etc) then you need a batch image converter and ‘Converseen’ comes highly recommended.
It runs in MS Windows, GNU/Linux and Mac OS X, supports a huge amount of image formats (including RAW images), user friendly interface and lets you fine tune the output by changing various image related settings as well.
*. Supported image formats : JPEG, JPG, PNG, SVG, JPX, DPX, PDF, MV2, ICO, GIF, MNG, MIFF, MOV, NULL, MPG, MPEG and many more.
*. Change output image quality and other settings such as resolution, aspect ratio, compression levels etc.
*. Also works as an image resizer as well.
*. By default it automatically overwrites the original files with converted images! so make sure to change the output directory manually.

This may not look like a lot of feature but once installed it’s a simple yet an extremely powerful little utility that can save a lot of hassle for you.
You can install Converseen in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot, 11.04 Natty Narwhal, 10.10 and 10.04 by simply adding its PPA to your OS. For that as usual, open your Terminal and use the below commands.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:faster3ck/converseen
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install converseen
Since it’s a cross-platform tool, other OS users can get it from this official Converseen home page (including instructions for how to install it in few other GNU/Linux distributions).
