I found myself using imagemagic often to

wrote a couple pygtk scripts and put them in the scripts dir for
nautilus. So now I can select a bunch of pictures, right click and send
them to the wrapper. Up pops a gtk2 interface that I can use to set
options like rotational direction, or filetype to output as a montage.
It fits in with the rest of the desktop and I dont have to keep
Very interesting. Are your scripts distributed somewhere ?
Nah, not yet. The pygtk stuff is still new to me. It was an excuse to
learn some python. My TODO list includes cleaning up the code and
releasing it. I still have to write the 'scale image' script. Its just
some ugly duct tape and bubble gum code at the core of it. The one thing
perl has on python is that there's an imagemagic module for perl. My
python scripts are doing lots of os.system() calls :)
However, I do believe there's a plugin site for this sort of stuff and
lots of other people have done this.
But if ya want a tarball, I could put a cvs snapshot somewhere. Its
nothing too terribly exciting.
