After seeing tons of different scripts and no response to your idea of
irfanview, I figured I'd put my $.02 in.... Irfanview is a Windows
program and this is a linux forum. Other than that, it is what I'd
recommend someone look at in order to attempt to do this before I had
to write them a one off script. Last I checked there is no linux port
of irfanview. You could look at xnview/xnconvert and after you figure
out the cli options, run it through a loop or xargs or find exec.

You could also look for a gimpscript (basically python iirc) to do
this there. Or if this is something you will need to repeat, you might
look into writing it.
