Asking for help/collaboration in nonprofit mini-project around covid-19

P. Cáliz
Thank you Ofnuts, Ken and Pat for your quick responses.
I can take advantage of something from each of your contributions.
I don't know about ImageMagic, but the shell scripting is one of my best. I
have reading and work for a few days.
If I get everything to work I will notify in this forum, in case someone
wants to use or share it.

Till then kind regards

Un cordial saludo,


*Pedro Cáliz*
