+!!! Usage Examples  
+! Resizing  
+ convert -sample width x height input.jpg output.jpg  
+The widths /heights can also take % values. It scales proportionally, so going 25%x25% on a non-square image will still make it come out non-square  
+! Joining images together  
+ convert files +append output.jpg  
+The +append appears to join them together left to right. -append possibly does something else. Haven't really looked into it.  
+Situation: You have a bunch of digital photos that you want to string next to each other for a website banner  
+1. Resize them all to 400px high (Just for ease of doing stuff later)  
+ for img in *.jpg

+2. Join them together  
+ convert *.jpg +append output.jpg  
+This will of course join them in alphabetical order. You may want to do something about that .  
+3 . Final resize /add gradients in [TheGIMP]
