Quick tip: optimize images from command line

I use this trick for quickly optimize images. Note, I use ubuntu:

just install these tools

sudo apt-get install optipng jpegoptim

and now you can do (beware: input is overwritten)

optipng file.png 
jpegoptim file.jpg

both tools work in the same way

jpegoptim [ options ] filenames
optipng [options] files

to convert between formats, you can use imageMagick

sudo apt-get install imagemagick

and now

convert input.png output.jpg
convert input.jpg output.png
