Jpgtn generates smaller JPEGs from larger ones. It can work in batches and create new files with names based on the names of the source files. It can dump a single thumbnail to stdout for use with pipelines or CGI programs. Thumbnail size and quality can be controlled by switches on the command line. There is no maximum "thumbnail" size, so it can be useful for creating images suitable for web publishing from very large images such as those taken with a good digicam.

Release Notes: A bug which caused segmentation faults on some systems and corrupted filenames on other systems was fixed.
Release Notes: This version fixes the inability to recognize some JPEG formats, poor filename handling semantics, and removes arbitrary limits on thumbnail size. The -f flag is now required for overwriting files, and the version flag was changed to -V from -v, which is now used for the verbosity level.
