Updated batch-cropping script

By far the most popular post on this blog has been “How to batch separate & crop multiple scanned photos” (click to link to original post). Thank you for your support, everyone!

While the script seems to have worked pretty well for most of you for the past three (!) years, there was actually a bit of a bug in it, making it not work for non-white backgrounds. This is now fixed!

In addition to fixing the bug, I’ve added a few new features including

  • Ability to set output JPEG quality
  • Setting a base name manually
  • Manually selecting the background colour (in case the auto-selection doesn’t work as it should)
  • The ability to automatically save output to the source directory

I hope you enjoy this new and improved script, which can be downloaded by clicking on the following link: DivideScannedImages_improved_v2.zip.

Instructions for installing and using this script are identical as for the original one (click here to see the original instructions, under the “Gimp”heading).

Here is a screenshot of the new and improved DivideScannedImages script’s user interface:
