Batch processing of files

Hello,
Been banging my head against the desk for a few days now trying to write a scrpt-fu to resize the enourmous images my 5 MegaPixel Camera generates into something smaller and more bandwidth friendly. Yes, I could do them individually, but I'm thinking I'll get tired of that after a while. Any ideas.

How do you get the images off the camera? Can you mount the camera's storage media as a drive under Linux (with USB or firewire), just copying images to your hard drive, or do you use something like gphoto to get them?

Using a PC Card Reader for the memory stick. Mounts as an ide drive. Works like a charm. Just don't umount the drive before you eject the card. Locks up the machine that way ....

As several people already pointed out, this problem is much easier to solve using ImageMagick. Thanks to Geoffrey who sent me a script that got me started in the right direction. (before that I was totally lost as to how ImageMagick even functioned.) Thanks all !

My Sony camcorder has both usb and firewire. I've not played with the firewire yet, but I have successfully mounted the memory stick media, it is recognized as a scsi device.

I haven't tried 5mp images (my camera is only 2.1mp) but I use my resizeall script (which uses the convert program from ImageMagick) to batch-resize, and some other related scripts to batch-process in other ways. http://shallowsky.com/software/imagebatch.html

(Of course, I use gimp for anything nontrivial ...)
