FastPictureViewer 1.1.138 is available

The File Utilities plug-in was updated again:

  • An "Image Dimension" condition has been added. It is now possible to condition a rule execution on the image size, e.g. "where the image is larger than 1024 pixels then..."
  • The "Date Taken" condition has been enhanced: It is now possible to create conditions on the GPS Time instead of the EXIF DateTimeOriginal.
  • A "Script" condition has been added. Power users can now write their own logic and use it as rule condition within the Files Utilities plug-in. Script conditions can be written either in JavaScript or VB Script. The new version ships with small example demonstrating how to write simple conditions, for example to select images based on the focal length of the lens used to take the picture. There are about 50 variable available to the script, containing information ranging from file size and dates, image characteristics, EXIF information and more.
  • A "Script" action has been added. Similarly, power users can now write their own processing instructions, to be executed by the rule execution engine though a full-fledged language interpreter. The full expressive power of JavaScript and VB Script can be used to act on image files, with the help of external components such as the FileSystemObject, the WshShell component and more. Actually, any scriptable ActiveX component can be used from within the scripted conditions and actions, so the possibilities are only limited by imagination: custom actions can perform virtually anything from file management to file transfer to image processing, provided that the needed ActiveX objects are installed. One notable fact is that scripting is available in 64-bit too: you can write 64-bit JavaScript within FastPictureViewer today (of course any external ActiveX object referenced from the scripts will need to be available in 64-bit flavor too, just like the 64-bit Internet Explorer needs a 64-bit Flash plug-in etc). Scripts can be authored with any text editor, there is no built-in editing facility.
  • A couple of smaller bugs were fixed.
Don't miss the Using the File Utilities Plug-in section of the online help page for a short tutorial and additional information. Take the time to learn to configure and use the File Utilities plug-in. It offers many flexible options to manage your image files.
