This plugin processes images, adding basic metadata

  • Processes files with extensions: .jpeg, .jpg, .gif, .png, .bmp, .xbm, .tif, .tif, .jpf, .jpx, .jp2, .jpc, .j2k, .pnm, .pgx
    Perl regular expression: (?i)\.(jpe?g|gif|png|bmp|xbm|tif?f|jpf|jpx|jp2|jpc|j2k|pnm|pgx)$

ImagePlugin uses the Imagemagick utilities to create derivatives(thumbnail images) and extract image metadata (width height format). ImagePlugin can easily be extended to extract more extensive image metadata if required.

The following table lists all of the configuration options available for ImagePlugin.

ImagePlugin Options
process_exp A perl regular expression to match against filenames. Matching filenames will be processed by this plugin. For example, using '(?i).html?\$' matches all documents ending in .htm or .html (case-insensitive). Default: (?i)\.(jpe?g|gif|png|bmp|xbm|tif?f|jpf|jpx|jp2|jpc|j2k|pnm|pgx)$
Options Inherited from ImageConverter
create_thumbnail If set to true, create a thumbnail version of each image, and add Thumb, ThumbType, thumbicon, ThumbWidth, ThumbHeight metadata. Default: true
thumbnailsize Make thumbnails of size nxn. Default: 100 Range: 1,
thumbnailtype Make thumbnails in format 's'. Default: gif
noscaleup Don't scale up small images when making thumbnails.
create_screenview If set to true, create a screen sized image, and set Screen, ScreenType, screenicon, ScreenWidth, ScreenHeight metadata. Default: true
screenviewsize Make screenview images of size nxn. Default: 500 Range: 1,
screenviewtype Make screenview images in format 's'. Default: jpg
converttotype Convert main image to format 's'.
minimumsize Ignore images smaller than n bytes. Default: 100 Range: 1,
apply_aspectpad {ImageConverter.apply_aspectpad} Default: false
aspectpad_ratio {ImageConverter.aspectpad_ratio} Default: 2 Range: 1,
aspectpad_mode {ImageConverter.aspectpad_mode} Default: al
aspectpad_colour {ImageConverter.aspectpad_colour} Default: transparent
aspectpad_tolerance {ImageConverter.aspectpad_tolerance} Default: 0.0 Range: 0,
Options Inherited from BaseMediaConverter
enable_cache Cache automatically generated files (such as thumbnails and screen-size images) so they don't need to be repeatedly generated.
Options Inherited from BasePlugin
process_exp A perl regular expression to match against filenames. Matching filenames will be processed by this plugin. For example, using '(?i).html?\$' matches all documents ending in .htm or .html (case-insensitive).
no_blocking Don't do any file blocking. Any associated files (e.g. images in a web page) will be added to the collection as documents in their own right.
block_exp Files matching this regular expression will be blocked from being passed to any later plugins in the list.
store_original_file Save the original source document as an associated file. Note this is already done for files like PDF, Word etc. This option is only useful for plugins that don't already store a copy of the original file.
associate_ext Causes files with the same root filename as the document being processed by the plugin AND a filename extension from the comma separated list provided by this argument to be associated with the document being processed rather than handled as a separate list.
associate_tail_re A regular expression to match filenames against to find associated files. Used as a more powerful alternative to associate_ext.
OIDtype The method to use when generating unique identifiers for each document. Default: auto
OIDmetadata Specifies the metadata element that hold's the document's unique identifier, for use with -OIDtype=assigned. Default: dc.Identifier
no_cover_image Do not look for a prefix.jpg file (where prefix is the same prefix as the file being processed) to associate as a cover image.
filename_encoding The encoding of the source file filenames. Default: auto
file_rename_method The method to be used in renaming the copy of the imported file and associated files. Default: url
