How to manipulate multiple pictures
Hi there.
This is my first experience with GIMP.
I'm ready to start organizing my dad's pictures.
As from now I have 1330 pic's scanned and I want to enhance them.
I found out that a lot of pics need to have a new White Balance.
To do this one by one will take me a year.
So, the question is: How to manipulate this "auto white balance" for a lot of selected pictures?

Don't use Gimp for that. Find a good photo manager (XnView, IrfanView, Photofiltre, Picasa, Digikam...). They all have some kind of batch processing facility.

RE: How to manipulate multiple pictures
As previous, I have XnViewMP installed as a viewer/catalog and buried in
tools - batch convert - actions - add process - map - automatic levels
which produces a result equal to Gimp automatic white balance.

If you want a Gimp solution then there is a plugin 'Bimp'
http://registry.gimp.org/node/26259
almost as long winded as xnviewmp, its in the plugin dialog 'other gimp procedure - 'gimp-levels-stretch'
a screenshot for this one. http://i.imgur.com/pwOEo.jpg

To Install plugins to Gimp, check out this page. It has instructions, the main thing is that you put it in the plugin folder it says.

I don't do many tutorials these days, all the basic stuff has been done-to-death, everyone & their brother knocks them out.

The occasional demo, a category this falls into.

A very quick (blink and you miss it) look at BIMP and XNviewMP batch conversion.

If you are using Win 64bit, do not bother with BIMP unless you can compile your own. The provided plugin is for 32 bit Windows.

When it comes to practical uses, I do not think that bulk automatic colour conversions are much use, unless you have something specific such as a set of dark document scans. But it is up to you.

best of luck

RE: How to manipulate multiple pictures
Ok, so actually the batch was already in the Gimp software after you downloaded it. So now, there is a fonction i can't find after I open the "batch image manipulation plugin", it's the "white balance" option in the "manipulation set", is it there or not ? If yes where ?
