Fast way to create PNG thumbnails of EPS files on Mac OS X

  1. Install MacPort at http://www.macports.org/install.php
  2. Install ImageMagick http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php
  3. Go to directory with all your vector files and open Terminal
  4. find . \( ! -regex ‘.*/\..*’ \) -type f -name “*.eps” -print -exec convert -resize 200×200  -colorspace RGB -quality 50  ‘{}’ ‘{}’-thumbnail.png \;
  5. The regex ignores the hidden files in directories and resize resizes it
