In your command prompt, go to the folder and run this: for /f "delims==" %r in ('dir /b *.nef') do del "%~dpr%~nr.jpg" 2> nul Basically, it goes through the current folder, runs through the .NEF files, and deletes the JPG if present. It ignores any errors if the JPG is not there. If you want subfolders, include "/s" (without quotes) in the dir ...

ImageMagick, using the -trim operator. See: http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/crop/#trim. ImageMagick is free (and open source), and you can get pre-built binaries for Mac OS, Windows, or Unix from http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php.

Well, Facebook isn't going to handle NEF anyways. However, if you have CS5, that means you have Adobe Bridge and the batch functionality to perform image conversion from there. The short example would be... Open bridge and find an image directory to work on. Select the images to modify. Select on the menu: "Tools -> Photoshop -> Image Processor" This is ...

ImageMagick would be an obvious possibility for the scaling itself. Scheduling a search for new pictures and creating a scaled copy of each isn't built into it though. Most OSes have scheduling capability that could run it though. As a programmer, one thing I'd probably consider would be to use a makefile to handle running the conversion only when a target ...

If you don't know the crop boundary then you can use Fred Weinhaus's multicrop script (this script also uses Imagemagick). The script also handles different photo sizes and rotated images. Example (book covers): Scanned image (input.tiff): multicrop input.tiff output.tiff Result: output-0.tiff: output-1.tiff:

ExifTool can do that for you. Example from the linked page: exiftool -AllDates-=1 DIR This would set all date fields in image in the directory DIR back one hour. ExifTool is very powerful when it comes to manipulating meta data in images. I would recommend to practice on copies of the files to get the command to do what you want, before unleashing it on ...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Nikon's own ViewNX, which will allow you to select all the images in a folder and batch convert them from .NEF to .JPG. The program is free, and came with the camera and if not, it can also be downloaded from the Nikon USA site Facebook upload is already integrated in ViewNX2. Here is a screenshot of a portion of the ...

In Lightroom, open the catalog with the photos, select the collection or filter so that only the files you are interested in are shown in the library grid (or undo a filter/collection if you want ALL files). Select all the files by choosing Edit | Select All (CTRL+A on Windows). Export as JPG by choosing File | Export (CTRL+SHIFT+E on Windows). In the ...

On Windows, Irfanview is another free image viewer which has a good batch resizing/resampling mode. From a quality POV, you should be interested in the resampling algorithms that your chosen tool uses. Irfanview provides control over, and the choice of, quite a number of high quality resampling algorithms, and the later versions also provide control over ...

DCRaw is the de facto standard for dealing with RAW photos on Linux -- in fact, DCRaw is the basis for the RAW handling in some commercial applications

If you are comfortable with command line tools from ImageMagick, you can do something like this: convert orig_image.jpg -gravity NorthWest -annotate 0 "%[EXIF:DateTimeOriginal]" new_image.jpg You can run this to batch process all your images. Details ImageMagick has an array of command line tools to do different things with image. I'm using the convert ...

UFRaw also provides a batch processing command - just open the first image, apply your settings, then save those with the option "Create ID File" set to "only". Then you can use ufraw-batch to apply the settings from this .ufraw file to your images.

May I suggest RawStudio? It has support for batch operations of the type you're asking for, and has dramatically simplified my post-processing workflow over my old approach of ufraw + GIMP. If you're familiar with similar "workflow" products on other platforms, the UI should feel pretty comfortable.

I'm not sure there are any tools that will completely automate this process, unless you're willing to write a custom script. I sometimes have to crop quite a few images at work, and one of the simplest tools that I have come across for this is a small image editor called IrfanView. It's not the prettiest of programs, but can do a crop and move on to the ...

I do a first quick pass looking for anything decent, even stuff that looks bad but can be possibly saved - I rate this all as one star. Then I work through those, quickly flipping through them and editing anything that interests me. Those I rate as two. After that I review all of the two stars and see if there's anything that really stands out, that is ...

ImageMagick! There's a bunch of recipes in the ImageMagick docs, but in short, something like: convert input.jpg -background white -gravity center -extent 3000x2000 output.jpg should do it. To do a bunch in a loop, either wrap in a simple shell script, or if you don't care about preserving the original file names, just use a wildcard for input (*.jpg, ...

Adobe Lightroom is significantly better for large operations like that. And you can fire up more than one action at a time. In addition to batch operations like that, it's built to be more streamlined into a work process for multiple photos. If you're doing color corrections, contrast enhancement, and other operations that effect the whole photo - you'll ...

I use FastStone Image Viewer: Once you open the viewer (if you opened it in a single picture view - press ENTER to open Manager), you can select any number of pictures you want Then follow the menu Tools / Batch Convert Selected Images (or just press F3) Click Advanced Options button Open Watermark tab, and place a flag on Add Watermark checkbox Adjust it ...

Photoshop has a function exactly for that: Scan your cover (you can even scan multiple covers in one scan) In Menu: Automate > Crop and Straighten Photos It automatically crop and fix the rotation of the photos in the current file. If multiple photos are found in the image, it will automatically split in several files. If you have ton of them, you can ...

FastStone it's free and simple, and it can little bit more then just re-sizing. http://www.faststone.org/

I don't see why you couldn't use Publish Services for this. If you are in the Library module, it is on the left pane all the way at the bottom. Simply setup a new Publish Services to your hard drive, and select the criteria that you would like to use, such as Photos Edited today with 5 Stars. Once you have that setup, you can really extend the functionality ...

Yes. In Aperture it's called lift and stamp. Apple have a video explaining how to do just that here.

Lightroom does this very well, plus it will handle other exports steps simultaneously. It is very easy to do. Just enable the watermark section in the Export dialog. You can use image or text and adjust transparency, position and scale. All the watermarks on Neopanoramic which you can see here are generated by Lightroom. You can contrast this with ...

XnView is probably the answer, as long as you either use a scheduler or manually run it on a regular basis. Personally, I use my own scripting which runs nconvert to do this exact thing. Nconvert comes with XnView and is also available separately. XnView is extremely powerful for batch conversion, it even can apply transformations during the process. Most ...

I've used EXIF Date Changer in the past, and it's worked pretty well. It's got a GUI so you don't have to fiddle about with reading man pages and learning command line arguments. Only (very minor) downside is it can't modify images in place, it needs to make a copy when modifying, so it doesn't affect the originals. The hardest part really is trying to ...

Picasa is probably the most popular program that can also do that. It has a simple GUI interface. Here is the Google help page on how to use it. You can also use NConvert with you own script or have XnView generate a batch file that will call NConvert for you. NConvert is command line, so you need to do the calculations for exact positioning (how many ...

I use Picasa for that. I would simply import the NEFs from the camera or the camera's memory card. That puts the NEFs in a folder on your computer's disk. Picasa sees the NEFs. You can edit them just like any other photo. Adjust contrast, crop, color, whatever... At that point, you can click on your folder of photos to select the whole folder. The "Photo ...

If you are processing the RAW files in Canon Digital Photo Professional you can save your changes as a recipe and then apply the recipe quickly to other files. To do this, first import an image; make your changes and then save settings as a recipe in the edit menu. Then any subsequent image you import just select the recipe you saved and the changes you ...

Create an empty Library From the Lightroom main menu, choose Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Lightroom > Preferences (Mac OS). In the General preferences unselect "Treat JPEG Files Next To Raw Files As Separate Photos" This should be the default. Import all of your files (you can select search subfolders), telling it to move to a new location The JPG ...
