I want to do something like

mogrify -format jpg *.png

However, I want to encode the jpg at a higher quality than the default. Is there a way to do this?

mogrify -format jpg -quality 100 *.png

Here's the official documentation. Value for quality varies depending on the resulting format, for PNG it goes to 100.


With any Linux command, you can enter

man [command]

To see the help page that list out the information and parameters available.
