Making One Change to Multiple Files


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to open many files and affect all of them with one or two changes?

For instance, I have a folder of 2000+ iPhone icons. I would like to make them all black and white and lighten the brightness. I calculate that it would take me over 7 hours to do this, if I did it one at a time and it took me 10 seconds each. I'm not willing to invest that much time in such a tedious task.

Is there any way I can accomplish this goal speedily?

Thanks for the help.

Sorry, but you will have to open each image and apply the effects on each on of them.

Hmm ... that is quite dissapointing. Would it be feasible for me to write an extension to do something like this? I am more of a VB guy than a C# guy, but I may be able to pull off a Paint.net extension, if it is simple enough.

I guess you can try doing that. Maybe you can make a plug-in that will allow users to select the images they want and then give them options of Adjustments and Effects to apply to them. If it does work, it still might take a while for Paint.NET to appy all the effects to your selected image depending on how fast your computer is.

As of July 4, 2008, ScriptLab comes with ScriptLab Batch Processor, which allows you to apply an SLS script to an unlimited number of images at once. To access it, click the Batch Processor button at the bottom of ScriptLab. if ScriptLab currently has a script loaded, that script will be loaded into Batch Processor. Otherwise, you will have to choose an existing SLS file.

Cool. Thanks for your help. I may try to do that, depending on how much free time I have and how bored I get. I'm really surprised someone hasn't come up with something like this before. There are so many great plugins.

That sounds really good. I'll have to look into ScriptLab. I've never used it before and honestly don't know what it is.
