Retrobatch is here to help process your images

Retrobatch is a node based app (this simply means you can mix, match, and combine different operations together to make the perfect workflow for your workstyle) that works as a batch image processor, allowing you to put lots and lots and lots images in one side and do a heck of a lot more than you normally do with your photographs and memories.

What if it was possible to take a folder of images and then operate on them twice with the same workflow? What if you could create branches where one would resize images to 50%, and another write out PNG files with the @2x suffix added to the file name? What if you had a workflow that referenced multiple folders which combined into a single output? And all the possibilities! What if you could read an image from the clipboard, apply a filter to it, and write it to a folder and to the clipboard? What if you had a way to separate out PNG images of a certain size from a folder and only do an operation to those? What if you could script the application in response to new images being added to a shared folder? What about if it could capture all the open windows of your favorite application as images, then apply a filter to those, and then write out a layered PSD of those windows? What if you wanted to apply a machine learning model against your images, to figure out which contains pictures of hotdogs in them, and then perform some action based on that? (Retrobatch)

The app claims there are "like, a trillion possibilities" and is super charged to have a node specific for every operation, from Machine Learning to changing DPI to rotation to customizing behaviours with AppleScript.

With the batch function, you can process either one image or thousands, and with features like transform and convert, you can resize, crop, trim, rotate, format, filter, and so much more with just the click of a button.

Retrobatch is also a terrific tool if you're looking to watermark images and text, allowing you to play with transparency, blending, and placement, while at the same time creating a perfect workflow for your photo editing so you can capture, filter and properly organize screenshots, selfies, GIFS, and so much more.

Right now you can download Retrobatch 1.0 for a 14-day free trial. You will need MacOS 10.12 Sierra, 10.13 High Sierra, or later to run it. You could also check out Retrobatch Pro:

The difference between the two are the nodes available- regular has a smaller set of nodes, but the ones that are most common in every day operations. To see the whole list, visit our documentation page on Pro vs. Regular.

What do you think?

Are you someone who's excited to try out Retrobatch? Is there another program you're a big fan of using that would so something similar?
