As Liam suggested ImageMagick is a command line tool intended for
precisely the sort of processing you are trying to do and will certainly
be much lighter and faster than a full GUI image processing program like
gimp. You could get your script to use gimp for (rare) cases like xcf
format where you dont have an option.
