Thanks for Retrobatch, I’m still trying to figure out all the features.
I’m trying to figure out crops for images passed, to add a little more human interaction to the process. So if it could prompt me with the crop ratio already set, and I just have to move the photo and then it would know where to crop, that would be great.
Conversely, I’ve also seen a previous thread about having to edit the plist to get a specific crop ratio. Could the crop be updated to provide a custom ratio?
I have also thought about assigning keywords to the photos, left/center/right to do an automatic crop, as those are Retrobatch settings. so if keyword has left, then do the left crop at the defined aspect ratio and save.
Thanks for the response! Thanks for the understanding in the delay of this reply!
I planned on having a few ratios to crop for based on social. For sake of example 1:1 and 16:9. This graphic is kind of how I envisioned it, to always take up the amount of space for the ratio in the opposite dimension.
You have a folder with images in it, and then the top rule looks for “File Name” “contains” “_left”, and then the crop right after that does a 1x1 aspect ratio pined to the left and writes it out to the folder. And so on.
Definitely keyword based searches, I could add left, center, right in there, or something more weird that I’d filter out later #right-dont-save or something for example. Would be interesting to see some more filters based on camera specific items from photos. I think orientation, keywords, and file type are the big ones for me that I know I’d use immediately.
Orientation, or square
Heic or not- to avoid recompression (see also file type)
Camera shot with
Primary color or overall brightness if it was reduced down to a pixel from 0-1
Keyword matching or not containing
Contains based on picture matching, like a contains a dog, people, faces, etc
Stuff I can do on my own:
Season based on time of year taken, per hemisphere
Morning, afternoon, evening, night based on photo time.
