Export many xcf to png
Following on this:
http://gimpforums.com/thread-automate-ca...5#pid24055
I now have a bunch of 500x500 xcf files that I would like to export to 200x200 png files.
Can this be done with a script?

RE: Export many xcf to png
Your previous post might be possible using ImageMagick, but so far no success.

This is a bit easier and using Gimp.

Bimp is an up-to-date Gimp plug-in for batch processing.

RE: Export many xcf to png
Thanks for the Bimp link. I've downloaded, but not sure how to install it. It says to Install the binaries into the plugin's folder, but I don't see a plugin folder. At c:\Program Files\GIMP 2, i see these folders:
32, bin, etc, lib, libexec, Python, share, uninst.
What should I do from here?

You put them in your local gimp plugins folder aka 'gimp profile'

C:\Users\'your name'\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins

edit: ok I use linux 95% of the time,so for windows

looking at the download gimp-plugin-bimp.zip

In windows click on it, there is a load of stuff, open the bin folder, then win32. Copy bimp.exe and pcre3.dll to C:\Users\'your name'\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins

do not copy the zip there. The plug-in adds an entry in the file menu.
