View Full Version : [ubuntu] Possibility to desaturate large amounts of pics at once?

February 9th, 2009, 02:59 PM

I want to use the desaturate function of the GIMP (or of some other program if possible), to desaturate about a 100 pics at once.

Is this possible in any way?

Found this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=466598&highlight=batch+convert+saturation) which may help.
But I would use the convert -modulate (http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/color/#modulate) command from the imagemagick suite. It is a command line utility but you can easily write a simple script to run a batch on a folder.

Sorry, but to "simply write command line scripts", is a bit too advanced for me.

I just played around with that Phatch thing a bit and it is grrrrreat!!

Recommended for anybody!

ps. Thank you very much!

btw. I am looking for the thank you button to thank you, but I can't find it.. :(
