If you’re a professional photographer, amateur photographer, hobbyist or someone who works with a lot of photos and do a lot of basic image editing like resizing, rotating, etc. then you’re definitely gonna love this program that I’m gonna share with you today. Its called Phatch, an open source, cross-platform and user friendly photo batch processor and exif renamer.
Phatch is an user friendly, cross-platform Photo Batch Processor and Exif Renamer with a nice graphical user interface. Phatch handles all popular image formats and can duplicate (sub)folder hierarchies. Phatch can batch resize, rotate, apply shadows, perspective, rounded corners, … and do much more actions in minutes instead of hours or days if you do it manually.
Here are some samples of what you can do with Phatch:
Thumbnails with rounded corners and shadow
Thumbnails with 3d perspective, watermark, rounded corners and reflection
You can learn how to do these with Phatch by reading the tutorials.
I know you can also do this on Adobe Photoshop and I’ve done it myself with the help of custom actions, but you’ll have to purchase Photoshop which is quite expensive and not all versions of Photoshop can be installed on other platforms like Linux. Phatch on the other hand is open source so its FREE to download and because it’s cross platform, it works on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.
Anyone else tried or are using Phatch? What program are you using for basic image editing? Do you know of any other freeware that has the same features as Phatch? Please share it with us.
