Please don't multi-post. I have deleted your other post.

Always state what version IM you use, on what platform.

To process multiple files, creating one output per input, use "mogrify".

Try "-negate". If your outputs are black and white, I suggest you write to png, not jpg.

OK. Then snibgo's suggestion of adding -negate to your mogrify command should do what you want.

yes! worked. thanks a lot all of you guys!
i have only one issue here. morgify doesn't work with negate. -negate works works well 'convert' and renames files=(

This works fine for me using IM 6.9.10.16 Mac OSX

Code: Select all

mogrify -negate lenax.png
What is your exact command line and what version of ImageMagick and platform? Your syntax is likely wrong.
