puf - photographer productivity tool
Score 56%

This program is intended for photographers who copy images from their memory
cards to their home directory. The photographer may browse the directory
structure and quickly review the images, marking selects. Selects are stored
in a file which may be used for batch process scripting. Images may be stored
in RAW, JPEG, or PPM format.

For RAW files, the thumbnail image embedded in the RAW image is extracted
and cached for speedy display.

Note: check file command output for your raw identifier. It should match the
string 'raw image data'. If not, then update the corresponding line below.

The tree may be navigated with the mouse, or the up and down arrow keys. To
select a photo, press the Insert key. If you prefer a different key, see the
instructions in source.

When a select is made, the file '.selects', located in the same directory as
the image, is updated and saved. Pressing the Insert key a second time will
remove the select status, and update the '.selects' file (removing the image).

The '.selects' file is useful for batch process scripting.

Example 1: (bash, copy to 'sav' directory)
# while read -r line; do cp $line sav/; done < ".selects"

Example 2: (bash, ImageMagick convert to resize)
# while read -r line; do convert -size 1200x1200 -scale 1200x1200 -density 120 -quality 90 \
$line sav/$line; done < ".selects"

(hint, the qt-apps site does not remove slashes from sql escaped strings, so
in the examples above you need to remove the backslashes!)

Note: star.png is stored in images/star.png in the source distribution.
It is specified in the puf.rc RCC Resource File.
