I'm in the process of digitizing some hundreds record covers (either
from old vinyl and/or from cd) by rigging my camera and flash on a
tripod and shooting all the images one after the other.
The tough task, though, is prepare them for my site:
1 - opening each image
2 - crop it as a square (thus eliminating the white background and
just keeping the record cover)
3 - Resize the image to a certain size (say 400x400)
4 - slightly sharpen it
5 - save the image adding some prefix (say b_ just to tell it from the original)
6 - Resize the image to a middle size (say 200x200)
7 - slightly sharpen it
8 - save the image adding some prefix (say m_ just to tell it from the others)
9 - Resize the image to a small size (say 75x75)
10 - slightly sharpen it
11 - save the image adding some prefix (say s_ just to tell it from the others)
I guess that such a job could most probably be performed over hundreds
of images by running a single batch script at the command line.
Am I wrong?
Is Gimp the right tool at all, or other tools would better fit?
Where could I start to build such a thing?
Is there anything the like already made?
