This script removes the timestamp imprinted on photos by digital cameras.
A friend had more than 400 photos with such a timestamp so I tried to get rid of it in a fast way. The script is a little quick'n'dirty but in most cases it's doing the job just fine. Better than I thought in the first place...
Clearly I didn't want to load all the photos manually, that's why wrote a script for batch processing. It processes all photos within a specified directory and selects the area with the timestamp. This script is no real Gimp plugin script. It's just pure python...
Copy the python_remove_timestamp.py into ~/gimp-2.6/plug-ins/ and make it executable
The batch loader can be placed where you want
gimp -i --batch-interpreter python-fu-eval --batch - < remove_timestamp_batch.py
UPDATE 2010-01-13: Because of the troubles with Python I've adapted the script also to Scheme.
UPDATE 2010-11-20: Fixed some bugs and set a larger timestamp selection in batch script.
