File a bug and attach a zip file with an action list and example image:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/phatch

I am trying to convert to Linux as much as possible, and I am excited about using Phatch in my photo processing (I am an amateur photographer). One of the steps in my workflow is to run a batch action on all my downloaded photos to do a lossless autorotate based on exif orientation. Doing this in IrfanView Thumbnails results in a file size exactly the same as the original (i.e. no loss in quality). With Phatch, I assumed I would not add a Save action after the lossless rotation because this would result in a loss in quality. But running the lossless rotation action by itself results in a file with 0 bytes. So I added a Save metadata action, but that still resulted in a 0 byte file. Adding a Save action gives me an output file that is rotated, but the quality setting in the Save action results is applied to the saved file, with resulting loss.

Is there a way to apply the lossless rotation and losslessly save the result?

can I test the program? I can't get it to go either.

When I try to save a file whit a number appended, (for example: image2.jpg), I get the error: File Name: Invalid syntax (<nombre del file>, line 1)
Is it a bug? if so, how could I fix it?.

Thanks in advance.

I convert ICO files to PNG and choose "Color to Alpha" to make black color transparent (by the way, it is bad that image saver does not respect original ICO transparency values).
When image is saved, black color becomes 100% transparent, but other colors become semi-transparent to different degrees. Am I doing something wrong?

Color to Alpha works strange by NitisaraNitisara, 19 Mar 2011 05:54

The images are processed in memory, so they are only written to a file with a save action.

This is not possible atm.

Hello *,

does Patch use any kind of intermediate images between all single steps? If so, what kind of file format is used?

So, to say it the other way round: If the input file is an JPEG, will every single action produce a new JPEG with all its quality loss?

Hello *,

is it possible to split an image into two? So I would like to resize a batch of images to one size and then save this images as two parts one for the left half and one for the right halft.
It can be done by running three different scripts: the first one does the resizing, the other ones are croping the canvas using left and right align.
But:can this be done unsing only one script?

Regards

Hello,

I have created a simple phatch action list like this:
- resize (to 1024x1024 keeping proportion)
- save (to _phatch folder)

It works but it seems that some EXIF metadata is not copied from the initial file to the processed one. In particular the "Exif.Canon.0x0095" one which I use to access to the Lens information (obviously on a Canon camera).

Is this a normal behaviour?

I'm using Debian squeeze version 0.2.7, and I have the same problem when reading the tags with the phatch Inspector or another tool (geeqie for example).

ps : phatch is a nice tool, thanks for the job done.

sorry, this post is not in the correct section of the forum - i have recreated it in 'support', you can delete this one

Hi @ all!
First of all: Thank you very much for creating such a intuitive, usable and well-designed software!

As far as I can see, phatch ist able to process a bunch of files by one action list.
Having to create two seperate action lists for each image orientation and having to select the right images among those in my folder led me to the question: Why can't phatch determine, whether the image ist portrait/landscape oriented and process the action list belonging to this orientation?

If you generalize, you get the following two possible ways to do conditioned batch processing:


1) MULTIPLE ACTION LISTS
Explained by an example:
You set up some action lists.
You set up conditions to be checked each time before processing the next image.
You associate the result of condition checks to an action list, that should then be performed on the current image.
Yet, if there are many conditions on just one parameter, there is much redundancy, because other steps in all actions lists are the same. Additionally, there is the danger of creating more or less condition results than action lists - this should be avoided by the software itself.

2) ONE ACTION LIST
At each step, you can define one or more conditions under which it is activated or under which it should have an certain value.
You get problems, if you want apply very different actions on few conditions. There ist much redundant work for the user.


Conditions could be: File size, Image orientation, color space,…after all: each property of an image you can read out by software.

I hope you understand the things i suggest above; if not, feel free to ask.

What do you think about this? I thnik this would enormously extend the possibilities of Phatch and still preserved the thought of creating a image batch processing software.

Conditioned batch processing by PhannesPhannes, 12 Feb 2011 21:43

Do you know how to get the actions lists to open automatically or at least show up in the recently used list?

I used to have a recently used list, but now - all of a sudden (really all of a sudden) - it is gone. Each time I want to run an action I need to open the action file manually.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and writing to you because I didn't get an answer either.

Thank you

Wow, I found what was wrong with "Phatch"
I deleted the "underscore" (_) too, which apparently annoyed my system in the file "fonts.py"at line 53, referenced above.
And it's works …

Hello everyone

I just installed opensuse Phatch in and nothing happens when I run
I find the following line when I run from the console:

surcouf@linux-r7nt:~> phatch
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/phatch", line 10, in <module>
    import phatch
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/phatch/__init__.py", line 25, in <module>
    init_config_paths()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/phatch/core/config.py", line 225, in init_config_paths
    from lib.fonts import set_font_cache
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/phatch/lib/fonts.py", line 53, in <module>
    sys.exit(_('Please install "%s" first.') % 'locate')
NameError: name '_' is not defined

Does anyone see what's going on?

This started a couple of weeks ago. Prior to that I could choose the action file I wanted from Recently Used. Now each time I want to run an action I need to navigate to where the file is saved and open it before it will load into Phatch.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Phatch 27.2

Has anyone else had this happen? Is there a fix for it?

Thank you,

GG

Because I got no reply, I opened the old phatch action lists and remade new ones by hand to match the old ones. Too bad there wasn't an easier way but that worked. I like some of the new features.

Actionlist (scale->save) works fine interactively, but I'd like to set up a droplet on a user's windows system.

I've not run into this on Linux, so wondering if I botched something with the install…

Or is there a way to download an older version of phatch?

Re: using old phatch files by earrameearrame, 21 Jan 2011 19:39

I recently upgraded my OS and phatch was upgraded along with it. now the phatch files that I had set up to do specific jobs no longer are working saying "Sorry, the action list seems incompatible with Phatch 0.2.7." Is there any way to recover these files?
