To be known before working

Here you can learn (explained in the details) how to manipulate the window where you load the images and how to do the treatment of a batch of images, and this in EKD.

Practical case

Let’s take now the exemple from Image > Various > For the web. First you have to load the images, in order to do it (in the Image(s) source tab) click on the button Add (in the lower side) …

… a dialogue box appears, in this window select the directory in which you have the images (on the left side), select if you need the Filters to choose them (by their extension) …

Your images are shown as thumbnails in the right side. You can preview and image by its own selecting a thumbnail and clicking on the button Display (or simply by clicking twice on the thumbnali you wish to see) …

… once you’ve done it, a new window shows you the thubnail you chose as an image …

If you click on Infos in this window, you’ll get some informations about this image …

In all situations, the button Back let you close this dialogue box … then the preview window of this image.

Once you’re back into the window where you can choose the thumbnails, here’s how to proceed to select your images for the futur treatment …

You have two possible choices:

1) You can choose your images by selecting them all … one after the other, if you’re in this case, click on the first image, push on the Ctrl key and keep your finger on it while selecting, with the mouse, the images that you want to use.

2) You can select your images on one shot, if you’re in this case, click on the first image, push the Shift key (the key just above the Ctrl), keep your finger on it while clicking on the last image of your batch.

3) You can select all the images in the directory (this time without making any choice), to do it click on the Ctrl key and at the same time on the A key.

To finish, click on the button Add

In the main window (in the Image(s) source tab), you can choose different displayings, the one by default → Icon mode

Icon mode and column

and Text mode. The three modes have to be selected in the scrolling list …

Go to the Settings tab, choose the Type Cutting/chunking image in the list, make the settings of Part number (horizontal side) and of Part number (vertical side) as on the image below (you’ll take care not to deal with (right now) the values of Treatment starting from image (number) and Number of figures after the image’s nameif you want to know what these settings are about, follow the link) …

Once the settings done, you can see the result in a new window (and before the tretment of a batch of images) by the button See the result

Here’s what this is about in the window we’re talking about …

Once you’re satisfied with the settings, you can start the treatment of a batch of images, click then on the button Apply and save

… a dialogue gets open, here, on the left side, select the final directory (if you need look in the sub directories), type the title in the text field File name: and click on the button Save.

If your images have different sizes, a last dialogue box asks you if you want to resize your iamges (it is better to answer Yes, otherwise, the treatment does not take place) …

While the treatment is going on, the progression bar takes place.

At the end of the treatment all the images are shown in the Image(s) after treatment tab (you can display yout images by theirs thumbnails) …

The slideshow (how to use it)

In this tab (Image(s) after treatment), you can acces to some parameters, as the possibility to start a slideshow from the final images, to know all about it, have a look here:

… here’s what these buttons are about:

1) Go back to the first image of the batch

2) Go to the previous image

3) Start the slideshow

4) Make a pause during the slideshow

5) Go to the next image

6) Go to the last image of the batch

7) Adjust the size of the image to the size of the window (to see all the image)

8) Display the image at its real size

9) Let you zoom in on the image

10) let you zoom out on the image.

Tip: to stop completely the slideshow, pause it and go back to the first image of the batch.
