convert: "-quality" ignored in JPG to PDF conversion
Binary package hint: imagemagick
I used to convert a series of JPG files to PDF with the following command:
convert -quality 20 *.jpg output.pdf
With 16 images sizing approximately 3 MB, the output file was about 3MB big in Ubuntu 8.10 and earlier.
This no longer works in 9.04. The output file is now more than 300MB big!
I'm using imagemagick 7:6.4.5.
This must be a problem with this particular ImageMagick version, or with the way the package was compiled. I rebuilt ImageMagick-6.5.4-2 from its sources, and it didn't show this issue.
