hi there,

I am trying to follow the instructions given by Discovery here:

in this he suggests running the following code

find . -type f -name ‘*.jpg’ -exec identify {} ; |grep 250x |cut -d “ “ -f1 |awk ‘{print “mogrify -resize 265”,$1}’|bash

however on running it give:

-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `|’

Does anyone have a clue as to what I am doing wrong or an alternative means of achieving this ie “If some of your product images are narrower than the 265 pixel product window (of the default template) then you may want to resize them en-masse. Clearly you don’t want to accidentally scale up any thumbnails, so it helps to know what images are a problem width, e.g. 250 pixel ones from the previous ecommerce package made when most browsers were 800×600… “
