want option to edit files from cmd line sequentially, instead of all at once
Submitted by Jamie Zawinski
The thing I use Gimp for most often is doing minor edits of photos I've taken with a digital camera (cropping, color correction, etc.)
I wish there was a way to do something like
gimp --sequential *.jpg
and have Gimp open up 001.jpg, and let me edit it; and then, when I save that file and close its window, only then open up 002.jpg; and so on for each file specified on the command line.
Obviously, when dealing with hundreds of files, I can't just open them all at once: that makes my machine thrash into the ground. But, opening them one after another using File/Open is a huge pain, since I have to scroll progressively further with each file after the ~10th, since the Open dialog doesn't remember the last scroll position, I always lose track of which number I'm on.
It's really easy to do what I want using "xv", if all I care about doing is cropping and resizing; but I often need the power of Gimp's Levels dialog, which xv doesn't do well at all.
What do you think?
Perhaps there's some simple script-y way to do this -- if there is, I'd sure like to know it!
I'm using 1.2.3.
