Many many thanks for taking the time to create a script.
I really feel sorry to say that I am not familiar with autohotkey.
Whilst knowing the existence of autohotkey, but I would not know how it works.
I was hoping for a kind of regex solution of vb script that I could use with Directory Opus.

btw: in this example I took .xls as an extension, but it could be anything, .png, .tif, .doc, .pdf ... etc.

Again, thanks for taking the time!

Post New Requests Here / Replace text months to digital months
« on: July 16, 2016, 02:27 AM »

The below is really a regular occurrence and so far I have either done nothing about it or manually corrected it.

Replacing text months (Jan* or January, Feb or February.. etc)
with -01- -02-  etc.

Example:

from
bla bla text-23june 2016.xlsx
Bla-Bla bla-bla - 2june 2016.xlsx
All bla-bla - 19 may 2016.xlsx
2nd to last bla bla 7 july 2016.xls
last bla-bla-bla-20 October 2016.xls


to:
bla bla text-23-06-2016.xlsx
Bla-Bla bla-bla - 2-06-2016.xlsx
All bla-bla - 19-05-2016.xlsx
2nd to last bla bla 7-07-2016.xls
last bla-bla-bla-20-10-2016.xls

ideal would be                            notes:
bla bla text 23-06-2016.xlsx          (-23june 2016.xlsx: removed '-' before 23, replaced june with -06-)
Bla-Bla bla-bla 02-06-2016.xlsx     (replaced \s-\s  with single space, added '0' to the 2 and rplaced june with -06-)
All bla-bla 19-05-2016.xlsx            (replaced \s-\s  with single space, replace \smay\s with -05-)
2nd to last bla bla 07-07-2016.xls  (added '0' to the 7, space-july-space with -07-)
last bla-bla-bla 20-10-2016.xls       (replaced -20 with space20 and space October space with -10-)

so
from English_full: January|February|March|April|May|June|July|August|September|October|November|December
from English_abbr: *Jan*|*Feb*|*Mar*|*Apr*|*May|*Jun*|*Jul*|*Aug*|*Sep*|*Oct*|*Nov*|*Dec*
to nmbrs : -01-|-02-|-03-|-04-|-05-|-06-|-07-|-08-|-09-|-10-|-11-|-12-

Maybe this is too complex for a single line regex and requires scripting.
Dates usually are at the filename, any type of filename, so something like:     \.(\w{3,4})

The code could be adjusted to months using local language, e.g. dutch

from Dutch_full: januari|februari|maart|april|mei|juni|juli|augustus|september|oktober|november|december
from Dutch_abbr: *jan*|*feb*|*mrt*|*apr*|*Mei|*jun*|*jl*|*aug*|*sep*|*okt*|*nov*|*dec*
to nmbrs : -01-|-02-|-03-|-04-|-05-|-06-|-07-|-08-|-09-|-10-|-11-|-12-

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Sorry, it does not work either.

I set to change size from 67cm to 28cm (SnagItEditor resizes it accordingly)
IrfanView resizes to 21cm

Tried a number of times.

Bad luck.

SnagIt also has a batch resizer, but dimensions in cm  is not included, regretfully.

tried a number of times, but when resizing, DPI is increased from 96 (original) to 300.

There are a lot of image resizers, they are all based on pixels, etc.
I am looking for a resizer that resizes using inches / cm's   as well

Freeware
portable
batch


=
SnagIt-24062016 104815.png

The above is from SnagItEditor, but each file should be opened, reiszed, saved.
A lot of work when one wants to resize 30, 40  or more images.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Post New Requests Here / Re: Suggestion: A new GUI for ExifTools
« on: June 14, 2016, 01:17 AM »
Okay, Geosetter seems to work fine with you, not with me. The moment I launch it, it freezes (reading data) and I can't do anything about it for a quite a long time. When I try to access the menu, it crashes (repeatedly). Note: I am not interested in GPS settings, I don't have that/never use that.

Anyway, forget the idea. As for me, this matter can be closed.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Sorry, I went for the beta version and ignored the .zip version.
That I have to confess.

As for speed, well, I took 1 folder with 115 images with a mix of raw and jpg
It took about 13 minutes to complete 'reading' the folder.

=

=

With ExifToolGUI there was no wait at all, all is instantly.
I admit, the images are 1-by-1, so there is no thumbnail preview of an entire folder I believe.

As for the details in columns, I didn't check it out, but think within ExifToolGUI there is also such a feature.
One drawback though, one has to know the name of exif-fields...

Tried it.
a. AFAIK not portable
b. I think it is quite slow, reading a folder it freezes for minute or two
and changing from one file to another also takes a little while.
that aside, it looks nice.
(read about an issue with .xmp files though)
anyway, I will continue to use ExifToolGUI.

Well, all that said, I think my initial suggestion still stands.
Most products are fairly outdated, when considering their major release.
I think a good tool will attract users here.
(as for Geosetter, I think ExitToolGUI and/or pyExifToolGui can probably do
about the same thing)

I just  found another small tool named pyExifToolGUI
I need to check it out.
At first sight:
-the window can not be resized
-a little too few details are displayed at the same time, i.e. one needs to scroll up and down a lot (because of using grid lines I suppose)
-in case of loading a folder, then the maximum thumbnails displayed is 10
[...]
no development since 2013.

appears to be being actively developed (?):
https://hvdwolf.github.io/pyExifToolGUI/
https://hvdwolf.gith...oolGUI/Changelog.txt


No, but I contacted the developer. Basically this tool was meant for personal use only.
He made it available to the public though, but as for himself: it meets his personal requirements.

As he has some other matters on hand he will decide whether or not to continue with it after a month or so.

I also used Exifer way way back, but indeed it stopped.

New camera's with possibly new features which may not always be addressed by the current tools.

The 2015 version was a (minor) bugfix, I myself reported that bug, but actually, since 2012 there were just a few bug fixes.
My optinin is that the tool is quite handy. Used it quite a number of times. It is also useful, for instance, when you need a time shift.
(winter/summertime and camera is not adjusted)

anyway, as explained, there are very few tools and support of those tools, well, at best it is very limited.
same goes for pyexiv2 (no development since 2011)

reason for my suggestion.

Then again, frankly speaking, I don't know if it is complex (likely it is).

Definitely not, but it is my shortcoming not being able properly work with it (command tool).
My preference is to use a windows interface.

There has not been an update of ExifToolGUI for a few years and there will not be any new versions: the developer has stopped with it.
It was and still is a great tool because it was
- tiny, fast, portable and
- included quite a number of features
- handle ALL exifdata only (i.e. no management and/or develop things)
- free


As far as I know there are no other similar tools.
Sure, there are imageviewers, like XnView, Irfanview and commercial products like ACDSee, but one way or the other these products have a few drawbacks.
Either slower or more complex or extra clicks are needed to view all exif data, or missing maker notes, or ...
Also Explorer or Explorer replacements can show some imagedetails, but they as well are limited: not all information is displayed.

ExifToolGUI becomes a tool similar to QuickPar - 'Old - no development anymore - but a times still needed'

Idea to bring out a new version with ExifTool as base??

Oh, I did look at an alternative found on the ExifTool site, but they can not be compared to ExifToolGUI.

Usually Explorer / Explorer replacements do not properly show stuff like sRGB and what type of White Balance.

@4wd - long time no talk - hope you are fine.

In Opus v.12.0.4beta  I noticed that setfoldate does not redate the folder
the same way as in v11

Any suggestions?

As you are using File Locator, does it also support other filetypes, such as .mdb, .dbf?
I am using X1 and have added .mdb, .dbf, .mmi, htm, etc.

X1 filetypes supported:

Anybody here using that?
Is it possible to change the default location of the index files?
I don't want them on my C-drive.
Also what is the maximum PDF file size ?

Thanks

Copernic Desktop Search
Is it capable of indexing large PDF files?
Say 300MB or larger.
I could not find a file size limit on their site.

Did anybody compare Copernic with X1 ?

An example may be : if you want to show what is going on when doing specific steps, whilst uploading screenshots,
it may often be better to use some odd file names, instead of using the original file names
(which may reveal the possible contents)

Hi there,
I have looked at Bulkrenameutility a few times in the past, but I -hate- the messy user interface.
I am more in favor of Advanced Renamer and Flash Renamer (an Explorer like interface).

Have looked at a lot of renamers over the years, but I am still sticking to Flash Renamer (not freeware) as being the best from my point of view.
Regretfully though there will be no new version, only patches if required.

Recently discovered a feature to rename files (using Flash Renamer) using a 'preset'. Didn't know it was there.
Matter is solved.

=

p.s. also possible using a script within Advanced Renamer

Post New Requests Here / Filename randomizer
« on: February 27, 2016, 12:38 AM »

Am looking for a tool that will randomize filenames.

Results should be:
- filenames with a length of -say- around 18-20 characters (so, long filenames should be shortened)
- extension should also be changed, e.g. to .tst   or to  .123  (random number, 001-999)
- characters to be used, like:
a-z   A-Z  (both lower and uppercase)
numbers
- (hyphen)
_ (underscores)
#  (Number signs)


It would be nice to just
select all files
use context menu - randomize filenames

have looked all over Internet but could not find a small tool that does this all.

Filename Randomizer (from xdpirate) has it limitations.
no context menu (one needs to browse to the folder)
does not change extension
only lowercase
no special characters

thanks

Screenshot Captor / Add: passwords hidden behind asterisks
« on: October 30, 2015, 12:51 AM »
Suggestion: maybe add the above feature?
See 'Capture Assistant "
(yes, I know there are tools to do so, often AV software are getting warnings, false positives, etc)

I know this is an old thread. I was facing the same problems quite often.

There are hardly any tools that can do this.
It may be handy to update date/time incrementally, or at least the time.
For instance if you wish to combine selected screenshots having mixed date time stamp and change the date/time stamp
so the get a sequence date time stamp and can be sorted properly (e.g. screenshots of installing a program).

You may wish to check out Nirsoft bulkfilechanger, select the files, add them to BulkFIleChanger, then hit F6 tag, then tag date/time sequence mode.
