[NTG-context] Multiple image conversions

2018-12-16 Thread Marco Patzer
Hi! I wonder if/how it's possible to specify multiple image conversions. Example: \startluacode local format = string.format local function degradejpg(oldname, newname) local s = format("gm convert -strip -quality 75%% -resize '300x300>' %s %s", oldname, newname) os.execute(s) end
