There has been a post going around about eight Terminal commands you should know if you’re a command line user. This is a great post for those who spend time in Terminal.app, but there’s a bonus command that could be super duper handy called sips, for Scriptable Image Processing System. Dr. Drang posted a nice writeup of sips over at his blog, including an example to show how it works. In this case, it was taking a stack of photographs and resizing so they were a nicer size for sending to a client who didn’t need the originals. Here I was all set to spend my weekend setting up Automator for some nice resizing action, but instead I can just do this. Wonderful!
