well I know now what to avoid but anyway sad -write was so helpful in converting from one source to multiple destinations :(

You cannot have -write xxx without specify a proper output. Convert needs at least one input and one output specified other than any intermediate -writes. The command should be

Code: Select all

convert b63cbbab-3ca4-4434-a7fb-a26da20c2f77.png -resize 1000x1000 -write big.jpg null:
That sets null: as the proper output, which discards any images left in the command line.

"-write" works fine.

"convert" and "magick" both require that the final operation on the command line is an implied write to a filename. "Implied" means that you don't have an explicit "-write".

So your first command is valid. Your second command is not valid, but it would be if you added another filename (or "NULL:") to the end.

So I just need to skip the last -write. In my command.

Code: Select all

convert b63cbbab-3ca4-4434-a7fb-a26da20c2f77.png -resize 1000x1000 -write big.jpg  -resize 500x500 -write small.jpg  -resize 150x150 thumb.jpg
thank you guys :)
