Convert Images automation plugin

Post by moman »

Can someone help me or walk me through using the Convert Images plugin?
I installed ImageMagick, and the plugin starts.
I want to take a .tif image file and convert it to a .cit file.
Altap will do this via the viewer/Save function, but I have hundreds to convert.

So, I select a few files and open the plugin.
All I've figured out is that it wants the output directory in the first line.

Convert Files to:
C:\_______________

Convert Files named:
*.tif__________________ (what goes here?) If I put anything other than the original file extension, it doesn't do anything at all.

How do I tell it I want the files in the .cit format?

Thanks for all help.

The options to convert.exe are specified in the script itself:

Code: Select all

var imageMagickParams = "-resample 100x100 -quality 80"; ...
As it is now, it does not support converting from one image format to another, but only applying transformations like resampling.

I guess you can specify an output format there (-format "..."), but the destination files will keep their current extensions.
Does ImageMagick convert.exe support .cif?

I still use IrfanView for batch operations (conversion of format, resize, resample...) - its very easy, but only for one folder at one time.
Which benefits have this setup with ImageMagic?
Is possible to make operation on whole folder tree?

ImageMagick is free for commercial use (IrvanView is not).
Yes, it is possible to run conversion operation on directory tree.
