I want to change my girldfriends laptop from Vista to #! as with 2GB ram its rediculous how long she has to wait just to power up and get into firefox.
It's easy enough to find linux alternatives to the programs she uses but I need something to replace VSO Image Resizer
It works from the context menu in windows. You can set custom resizing profiles e.g. resize the longest side for the picture(s) selected to 600px
It also has a simple watermarking feature which, in the case of how I set it up on her machine, allows you to place semi-transparent white text onto the picture in the bottom left corner, leaving a 5px margin from the edges.
She uses it for watermarking her photos with the url before she uploads them to her website.
I need something that's simple to use... preferably something that I could add to the context menu of images in Thunar.
Doesn't matter if the setup is a bit complicated.
I don't know much about GIMP but would it be possible to set up a photoshop-like action that would resize and watermark and somehow add this to the context menu?
Any help would be appreciated.
For resizing photos:
made a watermarking script for you here http://crunchbanglinux.org/pastebin/285 . just follow the same instructions for resizing photos that anonymous gave you, but change the action name to watermark. Make sure you have imagemagick and zenity installed. You will also have to make the image you want to watermark your pictures with.
edit: also use the script I linked to instead of the one in that post.
edit2: just reread that she uses it to watermark text so image watermarking would be inconvenient, give me a couple minutes I'll try to whip up one for text
ok heres the one for text http://crunchbanglinux.org/pastebin/287 . set it up the same way. It doesn't let you pick the font or color but it should work fine for most images.

I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may.
Thanks for that man Appreciate it
I'll let you know how I get on with it
Ahem...... why did nobody mention GIMP?
Because the OP wanted to use the right-click menu, not open a separate program?
What is the "OP" ?
