I'm trying to automate a process, and don't want to have to manually start
I could start ufraw and use its "gimp" button to transfer
control to gimp, but that doesn't do what I want either --
if you tell ufraw to "save" to get the .ufraw file saved, it quits;
so then you can't transfer control to gimp.
Fundamentally, I want to do the following:
specify a set of raw file names to process
specify a destination directory
for each raw file:
a. process in ufraw
a1. manual crop, etc., if desired
a2. save a .ufraw file in the source directory
b. process in gimp
b1. manual manipulation if desired
b2. automatic resizing and sharpening, etc
b3. automatically generate a .jpeg file in the destination directory
With the exception of the input file names and the output directory,
(and a1 and b1)
I want everything else done automatically.
I tried using a shell script and having ufraw write a .tif intermediary;
however, that has the following problem:
In step b3, I need to get the destination directory name,
and I can't figure out how to do that automatically.
A command line arg like "-DDEST_DIR foo" would be great,
but I don't see anything in the man page for defining an arbitrary
input arg which a script could have access to.
An arg in a script can have a fixed default value,
but that's not what I need.
One could get really gross and dynamically generate a script
with the proper default for the arg before starting gimp,
but that's sick :-).
I'm all ears for any suggestions.
