PHATCH: PHoto bATCH processor with EXIF and IPTC support for allplatforms

Phatch is a simple to use cross-platform GUI Photo Batch Processor

Phatch handles all popular image formats and can duplicate (sub)folder
hierarchies. It can batch resize, rotate, apply perspective, shadows,
rounded corners, ... and more in minutes instead of hours or days if
you do it manually. Phatch allows you to use EXIF and IPTC tags for
renaming and data stamping. Phatch also supports a console version to
batch photos on web servers.

What is new? Until Phatch could only save EXIF and IPTC tags on Linux.
Now this feature is available for all platforms hanks to the work of
Robin Mills who managed to compile pyexiv2 and all its dependencies
and get it to work on MacOS X (Tiger and Leopard, PPC and Intel) and
x86 Windows.
You can grab the libraries from here: http://www.clanmills.com/articles/gpsexiftags/
(Look for "Download the libraries click here" somewhere in the
middle).
I have not tested this myself yet, but assumes that it will work. Any
volunteers to test this with Phatch

(the perspective and reflection is produced by Phatch itself)

Phatch has many features, like:
- EXIF information inspector with thumbnail
- limit jpeg file size when saving
- tons of actions organized by tags (including perspective, round
corners, shadow, reflection, ...)
- console version (Phatch can now run without a gui on servers)
- batch rename and copy files based on exif metadata
- data stamping (http://photobatch.wikidot.com)
- online documentation wiki (http://photobatch.wikidot.com)
- desktop or panel droplets on which images or folders can be dropped
(available on Linux & Windows)

Linux only features:
- Nautilus and desktop integration (with its own mime type and
nautilus extension)
- manpage with examples

With python-pyexiv2 the following featues are added:
- embedding the original EXIF and IPTC tags in the image

You can install Phatch for any platform if you read these instructions
