What would you like to do?
A simple script for processing screenshots taken with a PS3. Images are cropped (custom for me, edit it to fit your needs), files are renamed and modification dates are retained in a correct sequence.
# This simple script processes screenshots taken with a PS3 and does multiple things:
# - Crops the image to a preferred size (this depends on the game used, remove if desired, or adjust as needed.)
# - Renames all images by sequence, sorted by modification date (dates are copied to the new files)
# Prepare a file list, sorted by modification date.
rm FILELIST 2>/dev/null
ls -tdr1 *.png > FILELIST;
# Initialize necessary variables.
while read file;
# Track the current modified date
MDATE=`stat -c '%y' "$file"`
echo "$file" -> "${SEQ}.png"
# Then apply the desired operations and apply the modified date onto the new file.
# If everything works without errors, remove the old file.
convert "$file" -crop 1217x653+32+18 ${SEQ}.png && touch -d "${MDATE}" ${SEQ}.png && rm "$file"
# Proceed to the next file and count up on the sequence.
SEQ=$(( $SEQ + 1 ))
# Clean up the temporary file list.
rm FILELIST 2>/dev/null
