Batch Processing?


Recommended Posts

I am new to paint.net, both the program and the forum, but not to forums in general.

I used the search function here to look up "Batch Processing", and recieved a whole bunch of unrelated posts.

So, I decided to post a question here about it.

A friend of mine has Paint Shop Pro on his computer, and I do a lot of work which requires me to do the same tasks to hundreds of photos, so, as I time saver, I end up going to his house to batch process off of his PSP.

These processes are generally things like resizing, or adding a watermark logo, and so on.

I do not see a way to do this in Paint.net, and I have no clue if a plugin to do so could even possibly be created.

Can anyone tell me if maybe there is a batch process under my nose that I am missing? or, if there is a possibility that future releases will include it?

PSP allows you to record your action and then save it as a process. I like that, and would like something similar, in Paint.net so that I don't have to go to my friends house every time I want to do a batch process.

Thanks

When in doubt, Try it out.

From http://www.getpaint.net/roadmap.html :

Roadmap and Change Log

Paint.NET v4.00

This release is a very long ways away*, and is only in the conceptual stage at this point. The goals for this release will be almost a complete rewrite of many parts of Paint.NET. The idea right now is to have a transactional data layer, a rewritten rendering pipeline that applies principles of functional programming, a better organized application model to enforce a clear bifurcation between "front end" (UI) and "back end", and of course the kitchen sink. Over the lifetime of the 4.xx releases, these core design and architecture changes should enable such features as layer masks, adjustment layers, effect layers, composite layers, effect and adjustment chaining, soft selections, scripting and recorded actions, a completely new brush system, much more efficient memory usage, and better use of multiprocessor systems.

* Very rough estimates put this at about 2 years out: late 2008/early 2009.

"Scripts and recorded actions" form the basis for things like batch processing.

These are all great responses.

Thanks.

Ok, so 2 years, that's actually not that long a way in the grand scheme of things.

I will check out irfanview in the meantime.

PDN rocks hard though. It's such an easy to use interface. I mean, I have a short wishlist of effects that I would like, but, overall, it's fantastic.

Kudos to the programmer(s).

EDIT:

Ok, I just checked out irfanview's batch processing. And WOW. I like it better than Paint Shop Pro's batch. I can easily just say what I want to resize to. I am all about an easy to use interface and this really is a great way to not have to go to my friend's house to work.

Good stuff, thanks again.
