Converting video and photo formats???

Converting video and photo formats???

Postby Tool » Tue May 07, 2013 10:08 am

I'm in need of programs that can convert video and photo formats. Anyone have any suggestions and where I can find them? I'm without the Ubuntu Software Center, but I do have the Ubuntu Tweak and Lubuntu Center.
Thanks :D

Assuming this is Ultimate Edition 3.5.....

think you have Ubuntu-Tweak

You can also install software center whenever

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-software-center


You can convert photographs in Gimp
Open the photograph. Export the photograph. After you choose export you can change the format. Technically, just by opening it, you are converting to .xcf.

You can convert movies in Kino
Open the movie. Export the movie. Same deal, just by opening it you convert it to .dv. Choosing export will bring up menu options for which format you wish to export to.

Pretty sure you have Ubuntu Tweak.

To check

Open a terminal

Code: Select all
ubuntu-tweak


If you do not....

Open a Terminal

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak


Also you have another software-center, its called muon.

For converting pictures .......when you double click to open image....eog(eye on gnome) will open it......once the pic is open....save it
as imagename.jpg......and it will save it as jpeg...

Other method is what Xan mentioned...once pic is opened in gimp.....export it to whichever format you want...

For converting video can also use handbrake....if its not there install it..

Ubuntu-Software-Center defies quantum physics in that it travels back in time. As stated, above, it is easily installable, and again, you have the muon-software-center anyways..(these are all package managers..i.e, ubuntu-software center, synaptic package manager, muon-software-center...)

Use whatever you want.

again

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-software-center


It wasn't purged or autoremoved, it will come back in a matter of seconds.

Thank you all for the help. My goal was to convert screenshot to JPEG and to convert mobile video to a format that would play on VLC. :D
