That's probably what I want.

Heh, I use convert to add a note to the top left stating the date and a
short description. But that is done before the picture goes in the bins
source repository (fancy name for directory, hehe).

I'd rather see the images as I convert them. Don't want over-sharp

>- to reduce the size of "original pictures"

You mean resize for thumbnails? Or down from the ridiculously large
JPEGs some cameras put out? (Ridiculous from my amateur point of view --
I'm sure professionals need that level of quality).

And that's another thing. I wonder if there might be ways to speed up
the run time of bins, as it is it takes waaay too long on my 52M ~840
image repository.
