I have a folder with hundreds of images. I would like to obtain a list of their dimensions (width, height) without having to manually check each image. Something similar to this:

image001.jpg, 1024, 768

How can do I this (Mac/*nix solution preferred)?

With ImageMagick:

identify -format "%f, %w, %h\n" *.jpg


find . -iname '*.jpg' -exec identify -format "%d/%f, %w, %h" {} \;

+1, more tidy than my answer :) figured imagemagick could do it – Sirex Sep 1 '10 at 8:36

use file.

"file *.jpg"

to process it you could always do something like

for i in `ls *.jpg`
output=`file $i`
res=`echo $output | cut -d "," -f2`
name=`echo $output | cut -d ":" -f1`
echo $name $res

or use awk or something similar to process the output of file, but either way it should do the job.

Don't use `ls` in for. Just use the glob pattern directly. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Sep 1 '10 at 8:02
On my system, file doesn't output the size for JPEG files. – Dennis Williamson Sep 1 '10 at 8:36
hmm, worth knowing. – Sirex Sep 1 '10 at 8:37
