I am starting to really like taking pictures, thanks to the new Pentax K5 I bought.
My photo processing looks roughly like this:
- I shoot many pics and delete 90% of them
- I edit them in Adobe Lightroom 4
- I push them on my openphoto.me account
- they are stored in my Dropbox account
What I wanted to add is a way to sign my pictures by adding a small text on the bottom right corner. Not because I want to look like some kind of pro photographer -- I am not ;)
But signing is useful when you send pics around to your family & friends: I want them to know that they are more pics at http://tarek.openphoto.me.
I found a cool little script at http://www.turboradness.com/watermark-your-images-with-python that provides this feature with PIL and will let you sign pictures with a signature image.
signpic is a small script inspired from that blog post that adds:
- a console script you can use to sign your pics or directories of pics using a provided signature image, or the signature image located at ~/.signature.jpg
- a --powerhose mode that will run a Powerhose cluster to perform the operations. This is very useful to speed up the process when you need to sign a bunch of pictures - a single signing takes a few seconds.... Powerhose is a Request-Reply Broker pattern in ZMQ, and speed up the signing task.
If you want to give it a shot:
$ pip install signpic $ bin/signpic ~/Desktop/pics --phose Using signature file '/Users/tarek/.signature.jpg' Looking for files in '/Users/tarek/Desktop/pics' +++++++++++++.............Done.
