Batch convert TIFF to JPG

After years of following courses and workshops I ended up with piles of books and papers, so reducing valuable storage space I found myself scanning them all. The result was a large collection of TIFF files. And for some reason I needed a JPG or JPEG version of several of them. This is how I did that in Ubuntu.

Open a Terminal window and go to the folder that is holding your TIFF files. Now copy and paste the following command:
convert *.tiff -set filename: “%t” %[filename:].jpg
