Description

inbac is an interactive batch cropper made for quick cropping of images.
I made this program because cropping thousands of images with image viewers or image manipulation programs was too slow.

Installation

The easiest way to use this application is to download the single file executable created with PyInstaller, which can be found on the releases page.

If you have python installed you can install with pip by typing:

pip install inbac

If you want to use the current master branch you can clone the repository and run the project using poetry.

Development Requirements

After installing above dependencies run poetry install in project directory to install remaining dependencies.

Examples

poetry run inbac /home/user/pictures/
Opens images in /home/user/pictures/ and saves cropped images to /home/user/pictures/crops

poetry run inbac -a 1 1 -r 256 256 /home/user/pictures/ /home/user/crops/
Opens images in /home/user/pictures/ in 1:1 ratio selection mode and saves images resized to 256x256px in /home/user/crops/
