I have just finished publishing online the newest issue of the ACM Crossroads Student Magazine. This new issue is a milestone for the magazine, because we just switched from themed issues to non theme or at least no centric theme per issue. Now we are accepting all types of papers to push more content on the magazine.
Its been taking me a little more time to get the issues published because I have to resize the images for the web, from huge TIFF files.
Its starting to get easier since I learned the magic powers of ImageMagick. I’m going to write a bash script to resize every TIFF file and convert it to nice and light JPEG files for the web. This should speed my publishing process a lot. I’m a newbie in bash scripting and this looks like a nice little task or project to learn.
