Nifty Things to Do with GIMP

Nifty Things to Do with GIMP Some of us are probably addicted to capturing moments in pictures. I can understand why. It’s one of those things that help us go back to the good old days, so to speak.

Adding dates to your photos.

Add date in the photograph with a perl script.

#!/usr/bin/perl

if ($#ARGV < 0 )
{
print \”$#ARGV \\n\”;
print \”Usage $ARGV[0] filename/dir\\n\”;
exit -1;
}

@files = `find \”$ARGV[0]\” -iname \”*jpg\” -print`;

if ($#ARGV > 3 ) { $cmd = 1;}
$count = 1;
foreach $file (@files) {
chomp ($file);

@details = `exif1 \’$file\’`;

$flag = 1;
$flag2 = 0;
$flag_w = 0;
$date = \”\”;
foreach $det (@details) {
@words = split(/–>/, $det);
$_ = $det ;
chomp($words[1]);
if (/Date/ ) {
$date =$words[1] ;
$flag = 0;
}
}

if ($flag) {
@details = `exiftool \’$file\’`;
foreach $det (@details) {
@words = split(/ : /, $det);
$_ = $det ;
chomp($words[1]);
if (/Date\\/Time Original/ ) {
$date =$words[1] ;

}
}
}
system(\”annotate \”$date\” \”$file\” \”$file\”\”);

$count ++;
}
