feature request -- reduce my mouse clicking by 90%

hi. i've had a feature request i've wanted to make for ages now, so i figured i might as well make it.

if anyone's sitting there thinking, wow i'd like to do some gimp hacking, please read on.

the problem is this. i'm a command line cowboy mostly, and i usually opt for an imagemagick solution much quicker than i opt for a gimp solution. i understand that this has mostly to do with temperament.

there are times when i need gimp, though. and when i need it, i usually like it.

except for one thing. i tend to open a lot of *windows*. sometimes too many.

here's two things that would make my life easier:

1) simple request

i've opened a lot of windows, and i want to be able to save every window in a (variable) directory with a (variable) set of defaults for a (variable) extension. seeing as how gimp seems to save defaults on a per-extension basis, this doesn't seem like it would be too hard.

obviously this would not work for windows that did not yet have filenames assigned, but it would be a huge bonus for me.

2) complicated request

for really complicated guillotines, allow saving guide positions to a 'guide file'. then make a handy way to do all of the slicing via the command line, given a guide file and the image named in the guide file.

The first task would be straightforward to do with a plugin, at least for a limited set of common file types. I suspect the second would be as well, but I've never used the guillotine functions so can't say for sure.

Hi -

I can only recoment that you take a little time to learn "driving" GIMP through one of the two scripting languages that have full API access - you can do it either iwth a Python console or a scheme console.

Python, in particular, will give you very flexible and easy ways to "save all open images to a folder using this name pattern". After exploring the possibilities interactively, you can put together what you found out works best in your workflow and create a script or plug-in to do that automatically.

Otherwise, if you want to formalize these feature requests, open them properly at bugzilla.gnome.org - people will forget about them on the list.
