INTRODUCTION to 'IMAGEtools' FE Nautilus scripts :

In 2009, I finally 'took the plunge' and migrated my mail, bookmarks, etc. from a (main) Microsoft Windows machine to a (main) Linux machine. I have documented reasons why I went to Linux, along with install notes, on an Ubuntu Install notes page

I do a lot of web page development in which a lot of photos and other image files are processed (renamed, cropped if need be, down-sized, gamma-corrected if need be, thumbnailed, etc.).

I found that I really missed the (free) Irfanview program available only for MS Windoze. I am not the only one in that regard. You can do a web search on terms like 'irfanview linux replacement image processing' and you will find many people who feel the same way.

In any case, my search for image processing replacements is documented on the FE Nautilus Scripts DESCRIPTION page. Writing Nautilus scripts more than 'filled the bill'.

Besides image processing scripts, I accumulated other types of handy Nautilus scripts, whose source code is accessible via the FE Nautilus Scripts DESCRIPTION web page.

The FE Nautilus Scripts are categorized into groups which are put in subdirectories of the directory $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts, in the Gnome2-Nautilus desktop and file-manager environment.

    In the MATE-Caja desktop and file-manager environment, the 'Caja' file manager looks for 'Nautilus scripts' starting at the directory $HOME/.config/caja/scripts.

The subdirectory names provide the names that Nautilus (or Caja) presents in its 'Scripts    >' submenu(s).

The names of those subdirectories are the 'script group names' or 'category names' seen in the FE Nautilus Scripts menu(s). Here is an (old) image of the original group names in an original FE Nautilus Scripts menu.

In particular, I have accumlated quite a large family of image processing scripts, as indicated in this (old) image of the 'IMAGEtools' sub-menu in an early version of the FE Nautilus Scripts system.

Just below is a list of links to the source code of many of the FE 'IMAGEtools' Nautilus scripts.

The names of the scripts are fairly descriptive of what they are meant to do. The comments in the scripts provide more detail on the purpose and methods of each script. Furthermore ...

The four-part naming convention used for the FE Nautilus Scripts is explained on a FE Nautilus Scripts Naming Convention page.

Be aware of the File Safety notice section of the FE Nautilus Scripts DESCRIPTION page.

List of Links to the CODE of 'IMAGEtools' scripts:

Here are a couple of image files that are used by the 03-RULER script above.

I accumulated so many 'IMAGEtools' scripts that I had to put them in subdirectories of the 'IMAGEtools' directory --- to keep the 'IMAGEtools' Nautilius scripts menus from getting too big.

Here are 'IMAGEtools' sub-directories (sub-menus) that contain additional 'IMAGEtools' scripts:

  • ImgsDISPLAYtools/
  • ImgsRENAMEtools/
  • imgANIGIFtools/
  • imgCOLORtools/
  • imgEFFECTStools/
  • imgGENtools/
  • imgHTMLpages/
  • imgSVGtools/
  • imgTEXTtools/
  • imgTILEtools/
  • imgTRANSPtools/
  • imgsCONVERTother/

And below are links to the code of the many of the scripts in these subdirectories.

In ./IMAGEtools/ImgsDISPLAYtools/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/ImgsRENAMEtools/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgANIGIFtools/ :

There is even a sub-directory in the 'imgANIGIFtools' sub-directory that contains more ANIGIF tools --- namely the 'makeEFFECTSaniGIFs' subdirectory.

Here are links to those ANIGIF-EFFECTS scripts.

In ./IMAGEtools/imgANIGIFtools/makeEFFECTSaniGIFs/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgCOLORtools/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgEFFECTStools/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgGENtools/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgHTMLpages/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgSVGtools/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgTEXTtools/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgTILEtools/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgTRANSPtools/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgsCONVERTother/ :

In ./IMAGEtools/imgsMERGE-APPEND/ :

To download the source, 'right-click' on any of the links to get a popup window of your web browser and choose an option such as 'Save Link Target As ...'.

Scroll down this page to look for keywords of interest.

Alternatively, use the 'Find text' option of your web browser to look for keywords on this page. For example, when looking for examples of scripts using the ImageMagick 'convert' or 'identify' command, use a keyword like 'convert' or 'identify' --- or when looking for scripts that involve the 'jpg' file suffix, use keyword 'jpg'.
