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?
