The ImageMagick package has the "convert" utility which you can 
use for all sorts of image transformations.  To convert "in.jpg" 
to a 320x200 "out.jpg" file, you can use

   convert -resize 320x200 in.jpg out.jpg

It's pretty smart about sniffing input/output formats, and you 
can do all sorts of other transformations (rotations, changing 
color pool, adding text,
  cropping, etc) as detailed in the man page.
