Thumbnail Generator

I wrote this Perl script to generate thumbnail images from pictures token with my digital camera. Linux geeks will love it while most Windows users rather would use something else..

Usage

 thumbnail [options] size image [image ...]
 options:
  -d destinationdir  thumbnails are saved to that directory
                     default is the current directory
  -p prefix          thumbnail filenames are prefixed with this string
  -bg color          (only with -w -h size) draw borders to fit box
                     color names (blue) or RGB hexcode (#00ff00)
  -q quality         JPEG quality of the output (0-100)
                     default is 75
  -v                 verbose mode: print filenames
                     
 size (either of the following):
  -f factor          image is resized by 1/factor
  -w width -h height image is resized to fit in the box width x height
  -w width           the longer side of image is resized to width
  -h height          the shorter side of image is resized to height
  
 image               file name of an image

 examples:
 thumbnail -w 640 *.jpg
   converts all jpg files in the current directory to a size of 640
   (if they are 4:3 this is 640x480 or 480x640).

 thumbnail -d thumbs -f 8 *.jpg
   scales all jpg files in the current directory down by factor 8 and
   stores them in the thumbs directory under the same name.

 thumbnail -p t- -w 120 -h 90 -bg black *.jpg
   scales all jpg files in the current directory to fit in a 120x90 box
   using black background color and stores them in the current directory
   with their name prefixed by t-
