The following command does not work on linux shell

svn move *.jpg imagedirectory/

it gave me an error:

svn: Client error in parsing arguments

Is there another way to achieve the same result? I want to batch svn move files

for i in *.jpg;
do svn move $i imagedirectory;

Is probably what i'd do.

either that, or something with find and -exec
