This program is intended for photographers who copy images from their memory cards
to their home directory. The photographer may browse the directory structure and
quickly review the images, marking selects or other purposes such as preview images
with a model, for example. Selects are stored in a file which may be used for batch
process scripting. Burplex will display images stored in RAW, JPEG, or PPM format.
Note: check file (/usr/bin/file) command output for your raw identifier. Output
should match the string raw image data. If not, then you may wish to update the
corresponding line in the code below.
The tree may be navigated with the mouse, or the up and down arrow keys.
To select a photo, press the Insert key. If you prefer a different key,
see the instructions below.
When a select is made, the file .selects, located in the same directory as the image,
is updated and saved. Pressing the Insert key a second time will remove the
select status, and update the .selects file (removing the image).
The .selects file is useful for batch process scripting.
Example 1: (bash, copy to sav directory)
# while read -r line; do cp $line sav/; done < ".selects"
Example 2: (bash, ImageMagick convert to resize)
# while read -r line; do convert -size 1200x1200 -scale 1200x1200
-density 120 -quality 90 $line sav/$line; done < ".selects"
Note: star.png is stored in images/star.png in the source distribution.
It is specified in the burplex.rc RCC Resource File.
