Ubuntu: Why my computer fails when converting many images in Imagemagick with one command?


After updating to Precise had a few times the following mishap: when I try to convert to pdf many (100, 200) jpegs or pngs, my system gets completely stuck and need hard reboot. Or, more fortunately, I get an unreadable pdf.

With a few images all seems ok.

Is there a limit to the number of files converted in Imagemagick with one command like

convert *.jpg new.pdf

or is it something else the matter?


You have to define pdf page setting.

Type into terminal

convert -page A4 *.jpg xxx.pdf

Where xxx is the file name. There is no limitation of image quantity. But lot of image nedd more time to generate a pdf file.
