Some of the most powerful tools for creating visuals and working with images lie hidden in your terminal. We'll do an overview of some of these amazing (FREE!) tools – such as ImageMagick and ffmpeg – and see some real world techniques for working with large collections of images, and how I use these tools in my projects at WSJ. Some of the things we'll cover: make a timelapse video from sequential images, extract and save metadata embedded in photos, create image quilts, and build animated GIFs from videos.
