Command to Check Drive for New Images

Post by jwtrexler » 2014-08-13T10:56:16-07:00

Desired Result: I wish to (1) have IM continually look to a folder that intermittently has digital images downloaded directly from a camera and (2) process those digital images per the subsequent commands. I currently am using drag-and-drop with the processing commands on a line within an "If" loop within a bat file, but prefer to automate the process further. Not sure if deleting the "processed" files from the folder so the processed digital images are no longer seen by IM is the way to go. Any suggestions?

I do not believe that IM can check folders for new images by itself. That is more a job for your OS. IM can do the image processing once your OS says there are new images.
