How to create pictures thums in the one line

The following command can be paste as a one line
for i in `find /path/to/directory/with/pictures  -iname "*.JPG"`;\
convert $i -resize 800x600 `dirname $i`/thumb-`basename $i`;\
The find command return a whole path to a file. But we want to add thumb- before the actual name of a file. Therefore `dirname $i` ensure that convert get the proper path and `basename $i` the actual file name (preceded by thumb-). It is also worth to note the iname option of find command. It is case insensitive version of the name.
