|As promised, here you will find the feature list of upcoming iBatch Version 1.2. On top of that I would like to announce a workshop to be published in upcoming Amiga Future Magazine. The article will show you something about "Workflowmanagement" in iBatch. Convert Images, subtitle them, save them in html image gallery and printout an image list, with just a few mouseclicks. Once set up, it will work automatically ("workflow"). This can be accomplished via new "workflowmanager".|
New Features in iBatch Version 1.2
massive speed increase for thumbnailcreation, due to usage of jpg exif header embedded thumbnails (optional)
Metainfos (ISO Speed, Shutter Speed, capture date....) derived from jpg exif header will always be extracted and saved into seperate textfile
Metainfotextfile (exifinfo.txt) will automatically be updated, when you process images via iBatch.
All Exif Metadata from file of origin will therefor be preserved.
additional capture date based renaming modes
Windowposition and -size will be saved on exit
add up to four lines of text to your image
fill in Exif metadata automatically (filename, capturedate, cameramodel, ISO Speed, Shutter Speed, Exposuretime, FNumber, camera program)
uses comments from addcomment-plugin in order to subtitle images on html website
execute upto five plugins one after another automatically
e.g. workflow-plugin -> addcomment-plugin -> addhtml-plugin ->... (convert images, subtitle them and create html image gallery in one go !)
rename imagefiles extension e.g. from JPEG to jpg
delete iBatch related files, in case they are not needed anymore (thumbnailsubdidr, exifinfo.txt, pairship.syn...)
- updated iBatch pdf manual
- pdf manuals for plugins
- pdf conversion-profile overview (shows settings of included "conversion-profiles")
Keyboard navigation is available for all plugins. This guarantees a very fast workflow. Donnot even think about reaching for your mouse. Everything can effectivly be entered via keyboard. A very fast html gallery creation, e.g. during computer shows, is no problem. I am really looking forward to show of iBatch at the next Amiga Event or sports event.
iBatch (Image Batcher) allows users to easily convert/rename/renumber/resize/rotate a bunch of pictures at once. The pictures to be processed can be collected in a "Batchlist". In order to organize your batchlist ibatch provides a "Viewer" and "Batchlist browser" tool.
A fast workflow is guaranteed even on slow systems. This is accomplished by using preprocessed thumbnails/preview images for the "Viewer" or "Batchlist browser" tool. All thumbnails will be kept in sync with their corresponding source directory. Before you start the "Viewer" tool, iBatch will therefore check for existent thumbnails and add missing thumbnails from the given sourcedir automatically.
The whole program can be perfectly used for organizing/resizing digicam pics. Furthermore it becomes handy, when you have to convert whole image directories at once.
