Re: Diagonally collage images

Hmm, Fred's script is a lot simpler than mine and does a few things I have not worked out how to do yet. And Fred's is a true self contained script, where mine relies on dropping four images into a folder then starting the script. Then the script moves each of the images to various folders to proces...

Re: Diagonally collage images

I have added a new script, diagcollage, to do this effect. It is available at my web site at the link below. Damn! I spent weeks writing a script to achieve this https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/57626901/composed.jpg using ImageMagick. I could have just gone to Fred's web site and saved myself t...

Re: double extensions in output filenames

My code above shows you how to avoid it, but getting the filename without the suffix and using that with any suffix you want later in your script for the output name. Thanks Fred, When I went to 'have a play' with your code, I was still getting just a heap of error messages telling me there were th...

Re: double extensions in output filenames

UPDATE: For any other relative newcomers that end up with the double file extension problem. These are quick, simple fixes (for LINUX) that don;t seem to appear in google searches etc. so have been adapted from other stuff. By far the easiest is: rename 's/\.jpg.png$/\.png/' *.jpg.png This gets rid ...

Re: double extensions in output filenames

Thanks Fred,

1 - You have given me enough of a tutorial to re-learn some stuff.
2 - There is enough information here to help me and any OPD write a much cleaner script to prevent the problem happening inthe first place.

I'm going off to have a play with what you are teaching.

Thanks again :-)

double extensions in output filenames

Ok, I searched this and can't find it, so I'm posting it as a new topic. This is for beginners who are messing with scripts, and I was discussin it with Fred in another topic. It worked for me in Linux. I don't know if it works in Mac or Windows. If you have cobbled together a batch processing scrip...

Re: IM equivalent of GIMP - Levels - Output

Thanks Fred, HALD-SAT25+noicc+nara.jpg.png is the outfile. The pluses were added dueing the processing as part of the batch to process multiple files. Each time I run a new process on a file I add that process to the name. So when I strip the ICC profile from a file called nara.jpg, the script would...

Re: IM equivalent of GIMP - Levels - Output

Thanks Fred, No combination of that basename hint did anything useful :( But I'm almost there. I've changed the script above, so now I am just getting a double file extension (xxxx.jpg.png) on the output file. Just have to find a simple way to get rid of the .jpg and leave only the png extension. I ...

Re: IM equivalent of GIMP - Levels - Output

I'm almost ashamed to ask this, because it should be such a simple fix. But here goes. This is a BASH question really so I feel pretty stupid for forgetting how to do it. I am using a simple script to apply HALD-CLUT to multiple images. But the output is ending up with duplicated extensions. I'm obv...

Re: Hald CLUT

Sorry Fred, I was off doing stuff with JoaCHIP's oil painting code from 2009. Amazing what we can find on here. I'm using exactly the same image as i used in the previous post. Hald-16 was 172.8Kb Hald-16 became 7.6Mb after adjusting in GIMP Hald-8 was 10.4Kb Hald-8 became 205.1Kb after adjusting in...

Re: Abstract oil paintings

It is amazing what can be found on this site. I know this is an old post (5 years ago) and I have absolutely no interest in abtract art, but I couldn't help testing JoaCHIP's method and code. 64x64 was a little small for me, but I found changing a few numbers is all it takes to make it generate what...

Just reading this thread and having a quiet chuckle. But regarding Anthony's point 3/ users that post their NEW problem to an old thread!

Re: More thanks to Fred and the rest of the team

An UPDATE to add thanks for ongoing help. I always wanted to find an easy way to automate GIMP procedures. Something slimple. IM has helped me do just that, but just when I was almost at the point of getting everything exactly mathing GIMP output - along come Fred and snibgo, who introduce me to Col...

I think my experiment backs up what Fred says.

Re: Hald CLUT

I'm new to using HALD CLUT for processing, but reading this I just looked at my own LUTs again. Using Fred's sugestion when he was helping me explore HALD CLUT, creating a new hald_8.png was 10.4Kb in Linux. I decided to create hald_16.png and got a CLUT of 172.8Kb. So it seems the size change is ex...
