    Question apply layer to multiple images

    Hi,

    How can I apply a layer to a series of images? I want to apply a copyright, digital watermark, to a folder of images at once instead op applying it image per image.

    Can this be done with Gimp?

    Thank you

    Please try "Phatch" -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install phatch
    It is a batch image processor especially designed for such tasks. Watermarking includes selecting your chosen image to overlay, select its orientation, position etc. and select its opacity.

    Basically, you select and 'Add' an action > customize it per your needs > save it > execute it on a selected directory. All through an intuitive GUI, although it's commandline version is also available (phatch-cli).

    It saves the results as 'copies', but still it is recommended to keep the originals safe, and only perform the actions on copies of the originals.

    Install the imagemagick package and use its "compose" command to merge your watermark on your images.
    Warning: unless noted otherwise, code in my posts should be understood as "coding suggestions", and its use may require more neurones than the two necessary for Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V.
