Enqueue in GIMP, open only when the former file has been closed
Hi everybody! I need to edit several video frames in order to blur someone's face in the video and it would be useful to "enqueue" files. What I would like to obtain is that when I have edited, saved and closed image1, GIMP would automatically open image2 and so on... hope you understand, my English is a bit poor. Thank you in advance

On the other hand, if the face to blur is always at the same place, something like ImageMagick's convert will be a lot more efficient.

It may be easy but not for me Blush Well, thank you anyway!Wink

Now, what you really need is some video editing software...

Yes, but you said that ImageMagick is useful only if the subject whose face must be blurred doesn't move, and my subject does. I could use Cinelerra, but it's too complicated for me. I need a frame by frame editor and the best way to do that is to extract all the frames as jpeg files - using ffmpeg, then blur the face, then recreate the file with ffmpeg again. It would just have been useful to have a new image open when I'm finished with the former Smile Thank you!
