On my onward journey with learning GIMP, I wanted to do some batch image processing. I built a web site for the artist Ken Campbell many years ago, when tables were layout tools and transparent pixels were your friend. Now, it needs updating and to ease the pain I need a way of creating square thumbnails from rectangular images.
Enter Dave's Batch Processor! The screenshots says it can do exactly the job I want. All you need to do is extract the file in your plug-ins folder in the .gimp folder in your home directory, navigate there in the terminal, and then run the magic command make install.
But it didn't :(
I emailed the author, and he replied, which is very nice of him. Apparently I needed to install the package libgimp2.0-dev, which you can do via the Synaptic package manager. And which I did. And it works!
Thanks David :)
