ImageMagick is a powerful command-line tool for batch processing graphics files, but it could definitely use a graphical front end for performing the most common editing and conversion operations. Enter Converseen, a user-friendly GUI tool for tweaking and converting graphics files powered by ImageMagick. This tool offers only a subset of ImageMagick functionality, but if you often need to quickly resize, downsample, or convert one or several graphics files, Converseen is right up your alley.

Binary packages of Converseen for Fedora, Ubuntu, and openSUSE are available on the project's website, so you can install the utility on these distros with a few mouse clicks. Using Converseen is not particularly difficult. First, add the images you want to process either by dragging them from the file manager onto Converseen's main window, or using the buttons in the Add Images section. To convert added images, choose the desired format from the Convert to drop-down list. If you want to resize the images, tick the Dimensions check box in the action panel and specify the target width and height values. To adjust resolution settings, enable the Resolution option and specify the resolution you want. Finally, adjust output options, if needed, and press the Convert button to run the conversion operation. That's all there is to it.
