i know i am wrong here.
i didnt find a menue "new topic" in the how-to section..
would the admin be so kind to puttung me in the correct section (howtos)

so..back to topic..scale images with kde

i created a useful(at least for me) contextmenueentry to scale images.i always have had trouble to scale images to an appropirate size for my the images with gimp...and scale them there to a smaller size..and send them via email..(a lot of my friends still use dialup-modems)

so you can tweak the images (usually jpegs) on the cli with imagemagick-tools...or gimp or whatever..
for me as an lazy user not acceptable.
i created a new entry in the contextmenue(actually, i got the hint from a forum somewhere..dont remember yet)

works only with kde (i use kde 3.5.6)
requirements: kde and the package imagemagick should be installed

what to do:

go to the file:~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus...

create a new file..i have called it "scale-image.desktop"

copy and paste the lines below in this file..

[Desktop Entry]
X-KDE-Submenu=Bild verkleinern

[Desktop Action scaleBy50]
Name=um 50 Prozent
Name=um 50 Prozent
Exec=mogrify -geometry 50%% %f

[Desktop Action scaleBy25]
Name=um 25 Prozent
Name=um 25 Prozent
Exec=mogrify -geometry 25%% %f

if necessary, alter the words "Bild verkleinern" and "um 50(25) Prozent" to your in english:"scale image" and "scale by 50 percent)
my language is german :-)

you are set....try and enjoy

here a snapshot..a little big..but you can see what its look like(and in english too :-)

greets g√ľnter

Moved as requested, except that I'm not an admin Wink. I can create a new topic just fine in howto's, but that's probably because I am a moderator. The admins will have to take care of changing permissions, I can't do that.

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.
