Bulk exporting of xcf to psd

Christian Deschodt
Dear all.

Hopefully I can be helped here.

I have about 550 GIMP (xcf) files in lots of folders and sub-folders. The
editor where I have to send my work to needs them in Photoshop (psd)
files. Is there any way I could do the conversions in bulk while keeping
them in the same file locations?

Thank you and Regards.

Not GIMP itself, but have a look at
http://www.imagemagick.org/script/formats.php

It says it reads XCF and writes PSD.

You'd use the command line "convert" tool.

http://www.imagemagick.org/script/convert.php

You'd have to "batch" the command some way depending on your operating
system and how your files are stored.

Use ImageMagick's mogrify instead

mogrify has batch support built in.

And always keep in mind that ImageMagick shall have support to GIMP's
2.8 XCF files - if you do have newer XCF files generated by GIMP
devlopment version which can handle features like, higher color depth,
ImageMagick won't be able to handle them.


In that case one has to resort to scripting the conversion with GIMP itself.

Be careful of using mogrify instead of convert. IIRC, mogrify modified the
original file. The convert program generates a new file from the original.
