editing multiple images simoultainiously

Asked by ninjaslanc

hey, i have a lot of images to sharpen, and each one takes about 2 min. to edit.
is there a way i could edit (just sharpen) all of them in one step instead one by one?

You could try something like (in the terminal) to automate things:
for i in *.jpeg; do convert -sharpen 0x1.0 "$i" "new-$i"; done

This uses imagemagick, not digikam.

For more information, see http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/convolve/#sharpen

omg yes!
that worked for me perfectly
i did have to use a bit more powerful sharpening(0x5.0 worked like a charm)
you saved me hours
thank you!
