Migrate google cloud VM to new account / project

For couple of weeks, I’ve been looking for an easy way of migrating virtual machine from one Google Cloud Platform (GCP) account to another. At first, I wanted to follow an old Medium post, but I’ve found it rather complicated. Therefore, I’ve decided to tinker myself. It turns out you can easily transfer VM images between projects/accounts in three simple steps thanks to Create imagefeature as follows:

Hope someone will find it useful!

Batch conversion of images using ImageMagic

Today I needed to convert multiple .pdf files into .tiff images with specific DPI and LZW compression. I found it’s very simple using ImageMagic.

# install
sudo apt-get install imagemagick

# convert .pdf to lzw compressed .tiff changing dpi to 300
mkdir tiffs
for f in *.pdf; do 
  echo `date` $f; 
  convert -density 300 -compress lzw $f tiffs/$f.tiff; 

For more options, have a look at ImageMagic site.
