How to edit images in batches or batch (in bulk) with Gimp

BIMP GIMP plugin to edit and manipulate images and photos in batch

Use Gimp as a photo and image editor. I haven't touched Photoshop in a couple of years. Even when I was using Windows I stopped using Photoshop because I didn't want to hack it.

There are different ways to modify images in bulk, in bulk, in batches or bulk, whatever we want to call it. But this Gimp extension seems indispensable to me. Allows us scale images, add watermarks, rotate them, change the format, reduce the weight and many other actions that we will do in bulk and in a very short time. You will not believe the amount of time you are going to save.

I use it mostly to edit the images of blog articles. I size them right, add the watermark, and reduce the weight in seconds. But I see it useful for many people besides Webmasters, photographers who want to add watermarks. Or if you are looking to resize multiple photos or images at the same time.

I have changed my methodology. Now to add watermarks I use a Bash script. I leave everything explained here.

I leave you first what it does and then how to install it in case you are interested.

With the Action Sets created, we only have to choose the images to edit and define an output folder. You will be surprised by the speed at which the images are edited. I do not know why I have been so long without using it.

  1. Now in windows, already in the middle of 2019, the best thing is, directly, to install GIMP 2.10, which has this function integrated. All the best.
