How to Move to NEXT or PREVIOUS photo in folder, to fix "Red Eye"??
Hi, I am a new user of GIMP, first post here.
Amateur photographer, simple HP Mz67 camera, JPG files, Windows XP Pro OS.
I have a folder of about 300 JPG photos to view & edit many individually for "Red Eye".

Question 1
In GIMP, when viewing a photo. how can I simply move (after saving) to "NEXT" or "PREVIOUS" photo file in the folder to view & edit the next one?
I expected there would be simple commands, and/or <- or -> arrows, for this, similar to most viewer programs, ie BBPro, but I can't anything like this in GIMP.
Maybe I've overlooked something obvious?
With many photos to edit, It is a huge PITA, painly slow & tedious, , to have to OPEN each photo in turn via FILE>OPEN>OPEN IMAGE, one at a time to get to the next photo.
There must be an easier way!
I searched through GIMP HELP, this forum, and some on web, but have not yet found any info. on this. I am surprized as I thought moving to the Next file would be a commonly used function/tool in GIMP.
Maybe i haven't looked in the right place?

Or is there maybe a plug-in for this??
I did find & install DBP (David's Batch Processor) 1.1.9 which I used to batch Adjust for Auto Levels, which worked fine for that.

But fixing "Red Eye" is one photo and one eyeball at a time.
Which leads to Question 2 which I have to at least ask;
Is there any decent methods out there to "automate" fixing "Red Eye" in many files?
I can understand why there may not be such a thing though, and how a "one button fix" for "Red Eye" would likley be too "blunt" to really work properly.

Thank you for any help or advice on these 2 questions!
