Add sRGB-Profile to all files in folder

Post by dnisn » 2019-06-16T11:43:23-07:00

Hello, I've been archiving mid-resolution Pictures with Irfanview for about 2 years and just found out, that the color-profiles are deleted in all files. The original profile was sRGB. So I would like to re-add profiles to the files via batch conversion of a whole folder. My system is Win10 and IM-Version 7.0.8-48 Q16 x64.

At the moment, I navigate with cmd.exe to the folder and enter the following code, but nothing happens:

Code: Select all

magick mogrify -profile E:\!pf2_kurven\sRGB2014.icc
Best, Kilian

You need to add * at the end to process every file in the folder. But you should either backup the folder or use -path to a pre-created new folder to hold the output.

Code: Select all

magick mogrify -profile E:\!pf2_kurven\sRGB2014.icc *
