 +====== Converting to PNG from PCX - Converting from PCX to PNG - Using Linux ======
  
 +Converting images if there are more than one or to can be a daunting task, converting nearly 900 of them from PCX to PNG in order to make them available for a larger public seemed like an impossibility,​ however a quick search got me to ImageMagick and next I knew I was scripting along, I know its crude and it can be beautified but it works.
 +
 +The following requires that you have [[http://​www.imagemagick.org/​|Imagemagick]] installed
 +
 +for img in `ls *.pcx`; do convert $img $img.png; done
 +
 +Changing the file name ending to the correct ending
 +
 +for f in *.PCX.png ; do mv $f `basename $f PCX.png`.png;​ done
