JPEG lossless batch transformations cross folder/subfolders

Post by Guest » Sat Aug 11, 2007 9:50 am


I have a lot of pircture all under one single folder which contains a lot of subfolders which contain images too.

I would estimate that their are much more than 100 subfolders and they said folder.

I do not want to enter each subfolder (and maybe subfolders in that subfolder again) and select all images before I can apply jpeg lossless transformation.

I want to access the main folder and tell the program to convert all images below this folder.

Is that somehow possible or is there another convertor able to do that?

It is possible, but it's just a workaround. JPEG lossless transformations and other lossless transformations (metadata - EXIF/IPTC...) should be in the batch convert > transformations, since they ARE batch transformations - more here (I'll add a new post there soon, you can support it too).

So here is the workaround I found:

- Enter the main folder
- Press Ctrl+F
- Enable "[x] Include subfolders"
- If you have also other formats then JPG in the subfolders, enable also "[x] Format > JPG"
- Press the Search button
- Wait...
- Press the Browse button
- Select all files (Ctrl+A)
- Now apply the JPEG lossless transformations you want

This should work also for Metadata.
