Ability to display images from a list

Post by tengler » Tue Jul 19, 2005 6:38 am

I have a suggestion for an interesting feature. I would appreciate XnView accepting a text file as a command line parameter. This text file would contain full path names of pictures to display. I would use it for displaying ACDSee "albums" but I think that someone else can find it suitable for other purposes.

The text file contains one full filename per each line, for example this is the format of ACDSee AIS files:

"c:\my pictures\picture1.jpg" "picture1"
"c:\my pictures\picture2.jpg" "picture2"

Any text following the path name could be ignored.

Maybe "xnview.exe -slide <file>" could help you.

Hi,

thanks for you hint but unfortunatelly it does not work for me. I do not know if it is due to unrecognized text file contents. I use version 1.80.

With Hacker's good proposal you can view a list with names of image files.

But I found, that the quoted text after the image name causes problems. Without the quotes, it will work. Perhaps you (or someone else) finds and easy way to convert / brush up your text file a bit by simply removing the text after the filename (perhaps a small Perl script or awk).
