Sample command is "convert image.gif +compress image.tif" (+compress
removes file compression). Do not convert png or jp2 images.

this command breaks on inkscape_wallpaper___blue_by_ryanlerch (copy).svg with

$ convert inkscape_wallpaper___blue_by_ryanlerch\ \(copy\).svg +compress image.tif
convert: Extra content at the end of the document
`No such file or directory` svg.c/SVGError/2550.
convert: missing an image filename `image.tif'

Please exclude .svg files from the script - we will leave them in their original format.
