    Arrow Phatch: New Photo Batch Processor calling for testers

    Phatch = Photo & Batch! (http://photobatch.stani.be)

    Phatch is a simple to use cross-platform GUI Photo Batch Processor which handles all popular image formats and can duplicate (sub)folder hierarchies. Phatch can batch resize, rotate, rename, ... and much more actions in minutes instead of hours or days if you do it manually. Get Started!

    * You can download Phatch at the main website http://photobatch.stani.be > free download (ubuntu deb installer available).
    * If you want improved exif support, please download this installer.
    * If you want seemless integration with Nautilus, install: sudo apt-get install python-nautilus

    Phatch has already pretty good documentation wiki, but it could still be improved a lot with your helping hands (screenshots, text, ...). You can find a tutorial here.

    If you want to know what users are saying: read this.

    I am also looking for help to write documentation (screenshots, ...), translation of phatch in other languages, extending phatch with plugins (only knowledge of python & pil required), etc...

    Translate phatch in your language! Every word counts, go here: https://translations.launchpad.net/p...k/+pots/phatch

    Phatch currently can perform the following actions:
    * Auto Contrast - Maximize image contrast
    * Border - Crop or add border to all sides
    * Brightness - Adjust brightness from black to white
    * Canvas - Crop the image or enlarge canvas without resizing the image
    * Colorize - Colorize grayscale image
    * Common - Copies the most common pixel value
    * Contrast - Adjust from grey to black & white
    * Convert Mode - Convert the color mode of an image (grayscale, RGB, RGBA or CMYK)
    * Effect - Blur, Sharpen, Emboss, Smooth, …
    * Equalize - Equalize the image histogram
    * Fit - Downsize and crop image with fixed ratio
    * Grayscale - Fade all colours to gray
    * Invert - Invert the colors of the image (negative)
    * Maximum - Copies the maximum pixel value
    * Median - Copies the median pixel value
    * Minimum - Copies the minimum pixel value
    * Offset - Offset by distance and wrap around
    * Posterize - Reduce the number of bits of colour channel
    * Rank - Copies the rank'th pixel value
    * Rotate - Rotate with random angle
    * Round - Round or crossed corners with variable radius and corners
    * Saturation - Adjust saturation from grayscale to high
    * Save - Save an image with variable compression in different types
    * Scale - Scale an image with different resample filters.
    * Shadow - Drop a blurred shadow under a photo with variable position, blur and color
    * Solarize - Invert all pixel values above threshold
    * Text - Write text at a given position
    * Transpose - Flip or rotate an image by 90 degrees
    * Watermark - Apply a watermark image with variable placement (offset, scaling, tiling) and opacity

    Combining this, you can easily achieve this if you follow this tutorial:


    Thanks for testing,

    Stani

    Some more screenshots...

    Screenshot 1: drag and drop:
    You can drag and drop any files or folder on the Phatch window from Nautilus, F-spot, digiKam, ... Phatch will open an options window (eg. do you want to include subfolders of these folders and which file types in these folders). You can also minimize Phatch (View>Droplet) to a droplet which is handy if you have a preconfigured action list.

    Screenshot 2: shadow

    Screenshot 3: shadow + rounded corners

    Screenshot 4: shadow + rounded corners + watermark (by offset)

    Screenshot 5: shadow + rounded corners + watermark (tile)

    Re: Phatch: New Photo Batch Processor calling for testers

    One thing I've been missing for photo batch jobs is some tool to edit the tags. For example, I use gthumb to rename my photos according to date and time they were shot. This is great, 'cause I can sort the photos correctly even if I go and edit them later on.

    My problem is that one of my cameras actually save the time information in the "last changed" tag of pictures rather than the original date. So I want to copy the info from that tag to the other one. And of course, there are other tag operations that might be helpful at other times.

    Very good initiative though.
    Just trying to help...

    UI isn't really user friendly . If program is about editing images , then add "add new image" or "open existing project" menus.

    But a good idea for the project.

    I think you misunderstood the concept and probably should use a program like GIMP. The program is not about editing programs but about batching image collections. Right now phatch only works with local image folders as a collection. Later collection might come from various sources, such as:
    - the internet (flickr, ...)
    - ftp
    - ...

    For phatch a file is an action list, not an image. You can create, edit and save action lists. You can apply this action list to a number of images. Compare it to the automate batch function in Photoshop, but as a stand alone program.

    Exif support is on my todo-list and once implemented you could easily do what you ask for. Please subscribe yourself to the exif blueprint on launchpad. If possible, add your example as a comment:

    Nice work stani, I have filed a couple bug reports but phatch works nicely, I wish I had it a week ago after I came back from a trip to Paris. I had to manually edit tons of photos, what a pain that was.

    Re: Phatch: New Photo Batch Processor calling for testers

    It would be nice if I could apply actions to only certain photos inside a folder.

    Also it would be nice if I could see small thumbnails of photos inside a folder and then select individual photos in order to apply an action.

    Rationale:

    Lets imagine I have 100 photos in a folder. At the moment in phatch I would have to move all the photos that I want rotated 90 degrees to a new folder to apply the Transpose action.

    Lets say I also have some photos that need to be resized and others that need to be inverted, I have to select those that need to be resized and place them in a new folder and do the same for those that need to be inverted.

    But if I would see thumbnails from inside phatch and if I would apply actions by selecting images then i could speed up the process.

    Here is what I mean, made with GIMP:
