Convert PDF to JPG images with ImageMagick – how to 0-pad file names


I convert a pdf file to jpg images by using ImageMagick like this:

convert -density 600 foo.pdf foo.jpg

The created jpg images are named foo-1.jpg, foo-10.jpg and so on.

Is there way to 0-pad the output file names to foo-01.jpg etc.?
