I would like to recommend ImageMagick, but I do not see *.mix format I see 

MAN R Unix reference manual pages Requires that GNU groff and Ghostcript are installed. 
MAT R MATLAB image format   
MIFF RW Magick image file format This format persists all image attributes known to ImageMagick. To specify a single precision floating-point format, use -depth 32 -define quantum:format=floating-point. Set the depth to 64 for a double precision floating-point format. 
MONO RW Bi-level bitmap in least-significant-byte first order   
MNG RW Multiple-image Network Graphics A PNG-like Image Format Supporting Multiple Images, Animation and Transparent JPEG. Requires libpng-1.0.2 or later, libpng-1.2.5 or later recommended. 
MPEG RW Motion Picture Experts Group file interchange format (version 1) Requires mpeg2vidcodec_v12.tar.gz. 
M2V RW Motion Picture Experts Group file interchange format (version 2) Requires mpeg2vidcodec_v12.tar.gz. 
MPC RW Magick Persistent Cache image file format The native in-memory ImageMagick uncompressed file format. This file format is identical to that used by ImageMagick to represent images in memory and is read by mapping the file directly into memory. The MPC format is not portable and is not suitable as an archive format. It is suitable as an intermediate format for high-performance image processing. The MPC format requires two files to support one image. Image attributes are written to a file with the extension .mpc, whereas, image pixels are written to a file with the extension .cache. 
MRW R Sony (Minolta) Raw Image File   
MSL RW Magick Scripting Language MSL is the XML-based scripting language supported by the conjure utility. 
MTV RW MTV Raytracing image format   
MVG RW Magick Vector Graphics. The native ImageMagick vector metafile format. A text file containing vector drawing commands accepted by convert's -draw option. 

>From here, 


There are other programs like gimp that might help as well, but Imagemagick has CLI for batch processing.

Hope this Helps,
