I'm fiddling around with convert for a while now. So i just give it a try in this forum :)

My input image can be in landscape format or in panel format. (up to 1000x1000 pixels) Now i want to create a quadratic Thumbnail out of it. With one command-line-call if possible. My output size should be 70x70 pixels.

I found out:

I can crop 70x70 pixels out of the middle of the picture using the following options:

-gravity Center -crop 70x70+0+0

A fellow programmer used the following options to generate a "smaller" Version (Thumbnail) of an image with the correct ratio:

-geometry "120x90>"

Is there a way to combine those options to have an resized and cropped image in 70x70 pixels as a result ?

Many thanks,

Try this:

Code: Select all

convert input.png -gravity Center -crop 350x350+0+0 -resize 70x70 +repage output.png
That's still two steps but both within one invocation of "convert".
