Retrobatch 1.2

Description

Retrobatch is a flexible batch image processing tool.

  • Flexible: A node based batch image processor means you can mix, match, and combine different operations together to make the perfect workflow.
  • Super Charged: A node for every operation, from changing DPI to rotation to Machine Learning to custom behaviors with AppleScript. Optimize your images for fast delivery over the Internet.
  • Batch: Process one image or thousands of images, with support for reading and writing common file formats, creating multiple inputs and multiple outputs.

What's New Version 1.2

  • New Animated Image node, which will allow you to make animated GIF or PNGs.
  • Droplet support! Use the File ▸ Save As Droplet… menu item to write out your workflow as an application, which you can then drag and drop folders and images on to run your workflow. To re-edit a workflow contained in a droplet, you can either hold down the Option key when opening the droplet, or drag and drop the droplet onto the Retrobatch app icon.
  • New Set Finder Tags node, which can assign one or more tags to images in the Finder (Pro only). This will work on the image that was most recently written- so you don't need to write out a copy of an image to set it. You can instead have a Read node, and then a Set Finder Tags right after it and Retrobatch will then set the tags on the original files.
  • The Clipboard node got some improvments:
    • It will now notice when a new image shows up on the clipboard, and update the preview accordingly.
    • If you copy a file in the Finder, it'll now use that file on disk to process through any following nodes.
  • New preferences for sending out a notificaiton when a workflow ends, as well as playing a sound.
  • The Watermark node now has a "File Number" token, which is the image number being processed.
  • The Shell Script node has a new field where you can enter arguments to the selected script. Arguments are separated by spaces.
  • New "Round Corners" node.
  • New "Limit" node which will limit the number of images or PDFs allowed to pass through (Pro only).
  • New "Image Grid" node.
  • New option for the Write Images node, which enables to you write your processed images back to the original image it came from.
  • New template "Classify and Set Keywords" which uses Machine Learning to figure out what's in the image, and sets the metadata keyword based on what it found.
  • New "Page Number" rule in the Rules Node. You can use this rule to say "only let the first page of a PDF through", or "all pages of an animated GIF except the first", or even limit images 5 though 16.
