As I don't have any extra photo editing programs I used iPhoto to do this. Open iPhoto with the option key held down. This gives you the option to create a new library. Create a temporary one somewhere where it will be easy to find and delete it later. Import all the Raw Pictures into the new library. Export them all in the required format. Quit and delete ...


Here's a solution using python and opencv: This will crop all the faces it finds in the jpeg photos in whatever folder you run it in, with the padding specified by the left, right, top, bottom variables: import cv2 import sys import glob cascPath = "haarcascade_frontalface_default.xml" # Create the haar cascade faceCascade = ...


Since the best answers use non-Windows syntax, I will here post their code converted for Microsoft Windows. @StarGeek solution, very fast and simple: First set a base timestamp to all images: exiftool -datetimeoriginal="2015:01:01 12:00:00" DIR (DIR is the name of the folder containing all images.) Then assign incremental timestamps: exiftool ...


There's already a similar question on the ExifTool forums. It can be done using two sequential ExifTool commands. First, make sure all the date to the same exiftool -datetimeoriginal="2015:02:22 00:00:00" DIR And then increment the time on each exiftool '-datetimeoriginal+<0:0:${filesequence}0' DIR


Well, I didn't post my bash answer because the question specifically asked about a Windows solution, but since two other people did, here's what I came up with: for file in *.jpg do exiftool -DateTimeOriginal="1111:11:11 00:00:00" $file exiftool -DateTimeOriginal+="00:00:${file:6:4}0" $file done Avoids messing with the date command. :) Note that in ...


Try Irfanview. It is freeware (AFAIR) and has a very flexible batch renaming system. Other than that I would try writing a script, something along the lines of for X in $(seq -w 0 20) ; do plus=$(expr $X \* 10) exiftool -alldates+="0:0:0 0:0:$plus" image_$X.jpg done The first line creates a loop through the numbers in the file names that you have, ...


I am sure you know this, but for future readers, I should note that if you save only the JPEG, you lose nearly all capability to reprocess later. This is equivalent (in the film days) of keeping the print, but throwing away the negative. Recall that Lightroom does not 'import' your photos, it imports that data from your images. So its not actually copying ...


Basically, you're trying to screw in a light bulb with a hammer. Lightroom isn't designed to work that way and I don't know of any way to convince it to do that, nor do I think it'd be a good idea to try. You'll be much happier in the long run if you learn how Lightroom wants to do things and adopt some form of that processing setup. If that's what you ...


This really runs quite contrary to the natural order of Lightroom in that Lightroom wants to be an ongoing repository for your photos. It actually sounds like you'd benefit from a way to script Adobe Camera Raw functionality - here's a thread that touches on what capabilities exist in this area. In addition, if you've got Photoshop, it appears that ...


just use adobe elements organiser. select all the images you want to export and use the File and the Export to new image option. Free, easy and simple without much loss of depth.
