Batch Image Manipulation, it's time to implement it in GIMP

Hi all,
BIMP does not work with Gimp 2.10 and it is not possible to do a batch resize of images.

This is pretty unacceptable in 2018 from a program of such a great quality.

Is there someone working on this feature? Isn't it time to include this feature in the official gimp without the needs of extensions or plugins?

Thanks, Davide

Batch Image Manipulation, it's time to implement it in GIMP

BIMP is a plug-in developed by Alessandro Francesconi who is not a direct part of the GIMP team to my knowledge. There is already a ticket posted on BIMP’s official Github repository about the incompatibility (https://github.com/alessandrofrancesconi/gimp-plugin-bimp/issues/171) and Alessandro is currently working on getting it updated (https://github.com/alessandrofrancesconi/gimp-plugin-bimp/issues/165#issuecomment-386209784).

As for if BIMP should be included in GIMP, it sort of already is. GIMP has built in batch editing through the command line, see here (https://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Basic_Batch/).

Is it so unacceptable that you are volunteering to implement non-destructive editing followed by GEGL-based action recording? Say 'yes'! :)

non-destructive editing followed by GEGL-based action recording.

That's quiet interesting idea! If my knowledge is correct, GEGL operations could be represented like nodes of some graph, where the graph could serve as a recorded macro (I am imagining that some filters are also those kinds of macros). There is somewhere discussion about GEGL node editor in mailing list history.

Batch Image Manipulation, it's time to implement it in GIMP

I used batch mode (David's Batch Processor) from within Gimp 2.8 and below often as I send large numbers of photos to relatives to keep them updated on family matters. I have also used BIMP (and tried to recompile it for Gimp 2.10 under Ubuntu 18.04, but so far can not get it to compile).

I miss having some sort of batch mode, inbuilt into gimp. Writing scripts to run from a terminal as has been suggested is too difficult for an unsophisticated user such as myself. The way I use DBP or Bimp is non-destructive as I write the files out with a different name.

Completely agree! Gimp is horrible regarding batch-functionality! I try around since hours...still without success.

@Kasim: commandline and Script-FU and all that stuff is so 1990....we have 2019.

Unable to compile BIMP2 for Gimp 2.10.x? It throws up lots of warnings but no errors. Possible reasons:

A mix of non-compatible dependencies.

Using the Gimp flatpak (or snap) This version is 'sandboxed' and installed dev packages are not seen.

A quick demo (using ubuntu 18.10) might give a clue where the compile fails on your installation.

Attached the BIMP2 binary from that. This does work in a (k)ubuntu 18.04 Worth a try.

However, the previous BIMP 1.18 still works with Gimp 2.10.x

I agree about scripting, Scheme or Python, equally akin to Sanskrit for the average Gimp user.
