Do you use ImageMagick for rote processing tasks? I'm collecting scripts to help folks by adding a new section to ffmprovisr! Do you have anything to share? (Or share this?)

Forgot to link to ffmprovisr although I feel confident that this crowd is already hip to it: amiaopensource.github.io/ffmpr

@ashley Any thoughts on creating a schoolofimagemagick page? ffmproviser is getting pretty long and harder to navigate. Also, a CRALS, ffmpro, im, etc webring would be very magical.

@ashley Now I'm stuck thinking about other tools that could benefit from the ffmproviser treatment. Pandas? Siegfried? Droid?

@ashley and duh, of course there's a webring started in the intro of ffmpro

@ashley Think I found a good topic (git), expect some messages about how the ffmproviser code works

@nkrabben All this being said, I would welcome an additional section or dedicated page within ffmprovisr, and CRALS would probably be happy to include a whole section too, and I'd be happy to link to your own if you decide to go that route!

@nkrabben @ron@glammr.us The discussion grew to be quite large -- github.com/amiaopensource/ffmp

More opinions welcome!

I added ImageMagick commands in a new section at the bottom, although I do think we may push to move them onto individual pages, or even one individual page with "everything that isn't ffmprovisr"

@ron@glammr.us @nkrabben I originally made imagemagicktricks.html but decided it wasn't worth a single pages if itw as only a few commands. I'm the only one making PRs to it right now so I didn't want to start an initiative if it'll be me working solo.

@nkrabben @ron@glammr.us Selfishly want a mini hackathon to teach people Git practices but also add to this document in a quicker way!!

@ron@glammr.us @nkrabben Pushing Andrew W. and Kieran OL. to write intros to sox and exiftool respectively.
