Wasn't sure to post this or not as a simple application it has a big dependence (imagemagic) but maybe some one knows or a lighter alternative to convert the wallpapers to thumb nails for the preview and also get image dimensions?

PostPosted: Sat 02 Jul 2011, 09:04    Post subject: IM dependencies  

Dear Stu,

You could try my little prog picscale http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=34703 for creating the thumbnails, thereby eliminating the megs of ugly IM dependency. Don't get me wrong, I like IM, but picscale weighs in at about 38k and can handle lots of formats - most everything that gdk_pixbuf knows about - and could do this job nicely. It can also adjust h/w ratios on the fly.

With kind regards,
vovchik

Hello vovchik,

I have just been trying your picscale .pet in the simplewall script now - this is a lot better for size and does what i need to generate a thumb nail for the preview, however i seem to have run into a problem being unable to converting image files that contain white space in the name Crying or Very sad

picscale /root/wallpaper image file.jpg /tmp/thumb.jpg 300 350 80

Dear Stu,

Just noticed that myself. Thanks. I'll see whether I can change it to parse filenames with spaces. I think my argument parser is OK, so it must be elsewhere in the source. I'll have a look....

With kind regards,
vovchik

PS. If you have a jpg of 1200x800, say, and you want to preserve the ratio with a max width of 256, you could say: picscale infile outfile 256 900 9 and you would get the ratio preserved.

Dear Stu,

Please try out the attached mod of picscale. It now seems to handle files with spaces OK. I had to change the syntax slightly (now -i inputfile -o outputfile paramters) to simplify argument parsing. Just run it without parameters in a terminal and you will see the proper syntax. The source and binary (compiled in Lucid) are in the archive.

With kind regards,
vovchik

Hello vovchik,
Thank you for the update to picscale - i have been testing it out this morning and it works great, no problems with white space - and such a tiny size compared to imagemagic, great work. Cool

I have made picscale-0.1b into a .pet and added to first post.

cheers.
