<p><span lang="EN-US">Hi! I have lots and lots of images (jpegs)
that I would like to manipulate and shrink (in size). They are around 5 Mb big,
so I thought this would be a good Haskell project since it's a lazy
evaluating language. The problem is that I can't find any libraries for
image manipulation. Anyone who knows something that would interest me and maybe
give me some advices?</span></p></div></div></blockquote><div><br>Haskell is a wonderful language, so I hate to say this...but personally I don't see the benefit of using Haskell here, unless the manipulations you want to do are very complex. Some simple shell (or perl/python/ruby/whatever) scripts to glue together some calls to convert (or possibly other ImageMagick utilities) ought to do the job just fine.
