Keep in mind that scripting is now decades old. It's a basic staple when we need to automate work like this. So you have your script or batch files, then tools to change/edit images from the command line like Image Magick and others.
Given how many decades command line use has been around, you know it can be done this way.
I'm new to the forum and quite new to photography!
I have standard photos that i take for each client at work (around 10) and each photo has the same rotation/flipping/cropping needs. eg. first photo = flip horizontal then rotate 270deg clockwise. second = flip horizontal then rotate 90deg anticlockwise and so on.
I'm wondering what program will allow me to create shortcut keys which would allow me to do this as quickly as possible. eg. F1 = first photo etc. I very rarely need any other effects other than cropping/rotating.
Also, I'd like to mount these processed photos onto a custom template (ideally using the same program) so that it becomes a standard result/process for each client.
Hope this makes sense and thanks in advance for any advice!
