Re: Cropping a large collection of .PNG screenshots

I have a few hundred screen shots I want to put on a web page, but
they are all full-screen and I want to crop to the real contents.
This is an identical region in all cases.  So I want to script it.

So, 2 questions:
A) What's the best tool for the job?  Gimp, irfanview, or something else?
B) Is there a script already in existence where I can just change the
crop rectangle?  I really don't want to learn a new language for a
one-time job.

I come in very late on this thread.

There are already good solutions.  I just want to add one. 

I use Darktable for photo management.  It was designed to work with raw photos but in this case you could use darktable as follows:

* import all the png's
* select the first image and crop it in darkroom
* go back to lighttable and select the image you have edited.
* In the menu "history stack"  use the function "copy all" to copy the editing history of that image.
* select all the images you want to change.
* In the menu item "History Stack"   select "paste all" l
* export all the selected images

my lips will praise you.  (Psalm 63:3)
