This minimal Python script will convert a directory filled with tiny image captures such as this into gorgeous montages as seen below! I whipped-up this script tonight because I wanted to assess the regularity of my transmitter’s embarrassing drift. I hope you find it useful.
import os from PIL import Image x1,y1,x2,y2=[0,0,800,534] #crop from (x,y) 0,0 to 800x534 squish=10 #how much to squish it horizontally ### LOAD LIST OF FILES ### workwith= for fname in os.listdir('./'): if ".jpg" in fname and not "assembled" in fname: workwith.append(fname) workwith.sort() ### MAKE NEW IMAGE ### im=Image.new("RGB",(x2*len(workwith),y2)) for i in range(len(workwith)): print "Loading",workwith[i] im2=Image.open(workwith[i]) im2=im2.crop((x1,y1,x2,y2)) im.paste(im2,(i*x2,0)) print "saving BIG image" im.save("assembled.jpg") print "saving SQUISHED image" im=im.resize((im.size/10,im.size),Image.ANTIALIAS) im.save("assembled-squished.jpg") print "DONE"
Script to download every image linked to from a webpage:
import urllib2 import os suckFrom="http://w1bw.org/grabber/archive/2010-06-08/" f=urllib2.urlopen(suckFrom) s=f.read().split("'") f.close() download= for line in s: if ".jpg" in line and not line in download and not "thumb" in line: download.append(line) for url in download: fname = url.split("/")[-1].replace(":","-") if fname in os.listdir('./'): print "I already downloaded",fname else: print "downloading",fname output=open(fname,'wb') output.write(urllib2.urlopen(url).read()) output.close()
