Hi, all. I have a collection of jpeg images and I want to convert them into postscript files, which I can do with the linux convert command-line tool, except they should each fill one a4 page. Ideally, they'd stretch with no margins on the best-fit side, and preserve the aspect ratio, introducing margins rather than cropping, but a stretch-to-fit solution is acceptable if that's the only easy way. At the moment when I do "convert foo.jpg foo.ps" the image is too big for the page and if I do "convert -page A4 foo.ps bar.ps" then nothing appears to change (although the postscript is different). I'm ready to hear esoteric solutions, running a script in OpenOffice, say, or a bizzare HTML/CSS trick, or whatever, would do fine. Thanks for reading.

And no, psresize doesn't help. It seems to be rescaling the content at the same rate as the page, so there's no visible change.

Use the -density option to convert to set the DPI level. You'll need some clever way of determining the appropriate DPI level, though.
