A utility for photo triage

15 Sep 2014

You know when you’ve shot a grillion photos and you just want to keep the good ones?

Here’s a small utility I’ve written to make this easy and quick. It’s for geeks, since it involves the dreaded command line to begin with.

Change into a directory full of photos and run a single command triage. Open a web browser and point it to your computer (works nicely from iPad, allowing you to sit on the sofa flipping through photos. Other tablet computers are available).

When you’re done, a file called ratings.json will exist, and you can delete everything with less than, say, 2 stars with:

triage --less-than 2 remove

The utility removes .CR2 files and the like when it discards JPEGs. More details and source code at Github.
