Bak­ing batches of pho­tos

Linux Format - - TUTORIAL PHOTOGRAPHY -

One of the stand­out fea­tures of digiKam is the Batch Ed­i­tor. As its name sug­gests, it en­ables you to per­form the same ed­its to mul­ti­ple pic­tures as a group. While many other batch process tools ex­ist for re­nam­ing or re­siz­ing pho­tos, digiKam’s ed­i­tor makes it pos­si­ble to per­form any ed­its that you can ap­ply to a sin­gle photo to a group of im­ages.

Ei­ther se­lect a group of pics in the browser and open up the Batch Ed­i­tor win­dow, or dra­gand-drop files into the left hand pane of the ed­i­tor. Now you can build up a process by drag­ging tools from the Con­trol Panel in the bot­tom right to the As­signed Tools space in the mid­dle. In the top right pane, add tool set­tings such as the new size, meta­data, ef­fects ap­plied or name. It’s es­pe­cially use­ful if you want to ap­ply copy­right (or copy­left) de­tails to ev­ery pic.
