use a template on multiple pictures
I have a bunch of pictures that I want to add a template to. The template is basically a black border of certain width on all sides and certain text in the border. Is there a way I can apply a template at once to all the pictures I want ?
Thanks
Anurag

RE: use a template on multiple pictures
It depends if the images are all the same size and orientation. Not impossible if a mix but certainly not easy.

Assuming they are same size and using Gimp

This plugin BIMP http://registry.gimp.org/node/26259
and http://www.alessandrofrancesconi.it/projects/bimp/

Think of the 'template' as an overlay. So make it as a transparent png and apply in BIMP as an watermark.

A bit of a faked up example using the same image. Two operations, applying the watermark and renaming the result because they are going in the same folder as the original. You can overwrite the original - never a good idea.

and the result (icons showing in XnView viewer)
