Hi Mike -
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, you really don't
want to use
the GIMP for this task. It's ever so much easier with
ImageMagick. Try something like this:
for image in *.jpg
convert -quality 50 $image loqual_$image
Read man convert for all the details.
There may be cases where it makes sense to use the GIMP in batch
mode, but they are few and far between, and I don't think you
have one of them here.
