convert image.png -resize 300x300 -strip -interlace Plane -quality 75% public/static/headshot.jpg

Use the identify program to display information about an image (or a set of images):

$ identify public/static/headshot.jpg
public/static/headshot.jpg JPEG 300x300 300x300+0+0 8-bit sRGB 21937B 0.000u 0:00.000

convert -append image1.png image2.png vertical_both.png


convert +append image1.png image2.png horizontal_both.png
