Batch convert in ImageMagick

Many a times I wanted to do a batch convert in ImageMagick, however in the many websites I visited looking on how to do this, they always recommended to use the command mogrify. This partly achieves what I want, but at the expense of overwriting the original files.

Instead I found out that one could do this with the convert command in the following way:

convert *.jpg -format -tiff image-%d.tiff

Here I wanted to convert from jpg to tiff format without losing the original files. This works for any conversion you want to do. The additional %d part is for establishing the number for each converted file;i.e. the new files will be image-0.tiff, image-1.tiff, etc.

Hope it works for everyone!
