Looking for a tool to auto crop and separate images in to separate files..
I recently scanned a bunch of old photos, with several photos in the scanner at once to save time. Now I want those images separated in to separate files. I know that certain scanners can do this for you(http://www.pricegrabber.com/rating_g...1461/id_type=M) , so I wondered if there is software for linux that can do this. Maybe there is a plugin for gimp or something that someone knows about.
It sounds kind of complicated to me, so I wouldn't be surprised to find that it doesn't exist in linux yet, but it's worth a shot. Since it would save me a LOT of time.
Without having spent too much though on that ... if your photos are a
standard size, and you always aligned them in much the same way you
could probably get away with convert and/or mogrify (part of imagemagic)
and a little shell-script because it wouldn't depend on the recognition
of image-borders but would be simple maths.
Thank you for responding! That sounds like it could be very useful. I've never used imagemagick, but I'll look in to it. Most of the time I did lay out the pictures in the same way on the scanner, but not all of the time, so if I could get your method to work, it would save me a lot of time. Also, I have a lot more scanning to do, so I'll keep this in mind as I go!
I also found this: https://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/lists...ly/004813.html which was at least faster than copying and pasting over and over again.
