Mucho thanks once again Skwire, I do believe that this will provide a genuine boost to my productivity.  I'll drop you a donation as a token of my appreciation.

You're welcome.  I'm happy to help out.

On a technical note would you be able to explain how you did it?  Was it all autohotkey or something else?  And would you have the source code?  As I said way back at the top of this thread I am trying to learn how to create different kinds of programs on Windows and would like to make things like this for other people as well.

The interface is all AutoHotkey.  The grunt work behind the scenes is done by convert.exe from the ImageMagick suite and tiffinfo.exe from the LibTIFF suite.  I use convert.exe to do the rotation and converting from TIFF to JPG (using the "/rotate #" parameter).  The tiffinfo.exe I use for determining how many pages are in the TIFF file.

AutoHotkey is superb for making front-ends that utilise commandline executables and/or DLL files.  Initially, I had intended to use the GDI+ library to do it all but I couldn't find a way to get the number of pages in a TIFF file using it so I wrote it using IrfanView doing the image manipulation.  However, I remembered that you wanted to use this at work and IrfanView's license doesn't allow that without paid registration.  I then rewrote it using the current ImageMagick/LibTIFF method, hence the delay in getting it to you.

Does that help clear things up?

Superb, it works!  Many thanks.  I love a simple app that does exactly what you need it to do smiley

Great.  I'm glad it's working for you.  =]

Just one thing; i clicked Help,About and the message box is empty.  Presumably this would have the answers to these questions;

* What does Edit, Launch File do?
* What do the Get data... and Update highlighted... buttons do?

Doh, forgot to take out the Edit, Launch entry.  As for the other buttons:
  • Get data from focused row -- This will populate the the radio button cluster and the output directory field below the listview with the data from the focused row.
  • Update highlighted rows -- Let's say you just dropped a slew of TIFF files on the listview.  Highlight them all, choose a rotation, set the output directory field and then click that button.  ALL highlighted rows will be updated with your entered values.  It's a quick way to set the rotation/output data for lots of rows.

Give this a shot and see if it's what you had in mind.  If so, I'll set up the typical webpage, write a help file and release it.

3105  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: app to rotate multi-page images on: July 04, 2010, 09:28:07 AM
@deano: One thing I noticed in the sample file you sent me is that, not only is it vertically flipped, it's horizontally flipped as well.  Are they all like this?
3106  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: automated mp3 rip from video clip on: July 02, 2010, 03:09:53 AM
It could be that I have the mencoder.exe file packed into the video2mp3.exe file.
3107  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: automated mp3 rip from video clip on: July 02, 2010, 02:46:23 AM
Yeah...no kidding.  There's little I can do about it, though.  I would guess it's because of the keyboard hooks and such that are part of the autohotkey.exe which gets embedded when you compile a .ahk file (even if your code doesn't use the hook).
3108  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Group files from within folders on: July 02, 2010, 01:01:33 AM
Since FileBucket now handles folders as well, the methods could be renamed from "Copy files" and "Move files" to "Copy" and "Move".

Good point.  I'll change that.

BTW: What about "Delete" as an additional method for File Bucket? smiley Could do the same as Deletist.

I really really really hate messing with user's files more than I have to.  If I did add something like this it would be a "Delete to Recycle Bin" method.

I'm promise I'm still working on this; apologies for the delay.

@sajman99:  Thanks for the kind words.   cheesy
@Contro: Not yet.  I'll get to it when I finish up a couple of other Coding Snacks.
3111  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: app to rotate multi-page images on: June 30, 2010, 11:57:59 PM
Oh, one more thing.  Did you want the original TIFF "repaired", so to speak?  As in:

1) Extract all pages.
2) Rotate them as needed.
2.5) Make new multipage TIFF from rotated files.
3) Convert them to jpg/pdf.
4) Move them to desired destination folder.

Your thoughts?

3113  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: make folder set out of a txt file on: June 30, 2010, 10:00:35 AM
I use a similar program to create folders and subfolders inside a folder.
The script from Skwire is splendid and may be improved to the eleventh desire. Simply controlling an historial of the last text files and the last root folders used with a dropdownlist for the two options controlled by an ini file.
Very useful to organize matters or incidents according to patterns in the text files.

I'll consider adding this.

And may be improved with the possibility to create folders and subfolders. Two levels is enough.

You can already do this.  Simply make your text file like this:

Folder1\Subfolder1\SubSubfolder1
Folder2
Folder3\Subfolder3
...

I've created some test TIFFs as well but I wanted at least one of the ones he's dealing with as well.  =]
3116  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: app to rotate multi-page images on: June 30, 2010, 06:55:17 AM
Some questions:

1) When you get one of these TIFF files, are all the pages mis-rotated in the same orientation?
2) Do you normally only work with one TIFF at a time?  Or do you work with several of these TIFFs at a given time?
3) Are you able to provide me with a sample TIFF file that you deal with?
3117  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: app to rotate multi-page images on: June 30, 2010, 05:40:32 AM
I think I'm going to take a crack at this one.

3119  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Monitor the size of files on: June 29, 2010, 05:16:33 AM
I Think may be better put the equivalent size columns KB, MB, GB at the end.
For me with column bytes is enough

You can hide the columns you don't want to see by selecting 'View -> Choose columns' from the menu.

Agreed.  KatMouse and AllSnap are two apps that I IMMEDIATELY install on any Windows box I use.

I still need to implement your "upper limit" request so, for now, the Limit column does nothing.

"Size Matters"  ?
3124  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Monitor the size of files on: June 28, 2010, 03:58:59 PM
I have the basics of this ready to go.  What should we call this?  Filesize Viewer is rather mundane.  =]
3125  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Tool to block SPECIFIC app from Minimizing ("NoMinimize") on: June 28, 2010, 01:58:10 PM
It works here under Windows XPSP2.  I used the default ctrl-1 hotkey on my active test window and, even though the minimise button doesn't grey out, it doesn't minimise the window when clicked.
