I would write a new image processing action by extending the existing
imageapi actions for imagemagick, invoking something like:

convert <imagemagick args> input_file.tiff input_file.png or jpeg if
you prefer that format. In that case be mindful of the quality
setting, which IIRC, is 80 by default.

In the args you can specify everything, like geometry, resizes, crops,
or just do the format conversion and use the builtin imageapi crop and
resize functions.
