hi- I'm working on a project that requires me to convert a large number of images from .wpg to .png in order to be able to use them. I usually work in windows, but if it's easier to do with the linux command line (which I'm beginning to suspect it will be) that's certainly doable. I've tried both imagemagick and paint shop pro, as they both claim to be able to handle .wpg and are relatively easy to do bulk conversions with. However, they both were only able to "successfully" convert only a handful of the images, and those were greatly distorted. I tested inkscape with individual images that both imagemagick and paint shop pro choked on, and it converted them beautifully. However, I have a large number of files that I need to convert and would greatly prefer to be able to convert all images in the folder with a single command, instead of opening them all one-by-one and saving as .png. I've found the --export-png command, but I'm not sure how to make it do all the files in the directory (or if I even can). I'm afraid my command line skills are far from exhaustive, so "inkscape *.wpg --export-png=*.png" was all I could think to try, but all it did was convert each image to "*.png" with each successive file overwriting the previous, leaving me with only the last image in the list converted. Thanks.
