BIMP is a graphical batch plugin to apply a set of GIMP manipulations on groups of images.
You can use predefined manipulations like resize, crop, flip, rotate, color correction, sharpen, watermark, format conversion, rename, but you can also select other installed plugins or script-fu and apply them to each image.

- Updated French translation (thanks to Robert Brizard)
- Fixed regression that caused BIMP to fail start on GIMP 2.6

This plug-in seems like exactly what I've been looking for, but I'm having a problem installing it. When I launched Gimp after copying the bimp-locale folder, pcre3.dll and bimp files to my C:\Users\******\.gimp-2.6\plug-ins folder I got the following message
"The procedure entry point gimp_get_interpolation could not be located in the dynamic library libgimp-2.0-0.dll."
Does anyone one know what I did wrong? I'm running GIMP 2.6.12 on Windows 7 Home Premium.

The instructions clearly say you should copy bimp.exe and pcre3.dll in C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins.
Just these two files. No need to copy src folder. Locale folder (if you want plugin interface in Italian or French) to C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\locale

That's a known bug! ToolMan78 did the installation in the right way, but in the latest release there's an incompatibility with 2.6 versions of GIMP. There are two solutions:
1) Install the latest version of GIMP (2.8.x), I suggest this first option
2) Download the very latest, fixed, version of BIMP through GitHub, here

The official fix will be available in BIMP 0.10 [EDIT: 0.9!] in few days

I think I'll just wait for version 0.10 in that case. I can wait a few days. Been putting off installing GIMP 2.8, 2.6 is working just fine and I'm figuring some of my plugins/scripts will stop working.

Thank you so much to everyone that helped finding bugs and proposing enhancements! Now 0.8 version is out with these features:

- Multilanguage support (available languages: English, Italian, French)
- Added Manipulation Preview window
- Limits for GTK Spin Buttons in "Other GIMP procedure..." are now well interpreted
- Workaround for a bug that affects MacOS X users when selecting images
- Support XCF as input format
- Few graphical fixes around

I am running the GIMP on mountain lion via x11. I can't find any information on a Mac version of BIMP. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Unfortunately I can't personally test BIMP on a Mac... but I think that the procedure explained in the README file will work for Linux and Mac systems too. Waiting for people that have BIMP installed on Mac systems.....

I am in the process of digitizing many thousands of negative images by first photographing them with a high megapixel camera and macro lens, then converting to positive images and color correcting, etc.

I have found BIMP to be very useful in applying a series of GIMP steps to a large number of image files at a time. The one thing I haven't figured out how to do -- not sure there is a way to do it -- is to save my chosen manipulation steps somehow so I don't have to re-enter them every time I start BIMP.

My comment/question is, if there is no way to save BIMP settings for re-use, then I surely wish that feature could be added. And if there is such a capability I can't find it; how do I access it?
