as mentioned, the 'mv' command renames files (literally "move file1.jpg
what you want is an image application such as ImageMagick or Gimp.
the Gimp will be the more obvious one for a newbie, and will most likely
already be installed on your machine. Just type "gimp" into your console
(or "gimp-2.0" if that doesn't work), and a nice graphical image editor
ImageMagick is a more technical application. It's a suite of programs.
To convert from JPEG to PNG, for instance, you would run this on the
convert file1.jpg file1.png
Note that the "convert" program picks up what format you want to convert
top automatically. It can also do resizes, crops, watermarks, etc.
