  1. You don’t need the backticks and “ls” in a for-loop

    for i in `ls *.jpg`; do

    can be changed to

    for i in *.jpg; do

    which is not only simpler but also better, safer and less expensive. If you also put double quotes around $i, that is “$i”, the command would be able to handle filenames with spaces in them. In fact, it would handle filenames with any characters in them, even radioactive characters.
