Change image file type
« on: August 05, 2016, 04:21:40 PM »

I need to change the type of my photos from jpg to tiff. I found this piece of code from Alexey on the forums to do this:

Code: [Select]
chunk =
for i in range (len(chunk.cameras)):
    chunk.cameras[i].frames[0].path = chunk.cameras[i].path.replace(".jpg", ".tiff")

Can I paste this code in the console or run it directly as a script? I'm getting a bunch of different syntax errors. Any help would be appreciated; I'm completely new to Python.

For the latest version of PhotoScan Pro I suggest to use the following script (saved as .py file and executed from Run Script dialog):
Code: [Select]
import PhotoScan
chunk =
suffix = "tiff"
for camera in chunk.cameras:
camera.label = ".".join([camera.label.rsplit(".",1)[0], suffix]) = ".".join([".",1)[0], suffix])
this script swaps the extension for the cameras from the existing to "tiff", but you can change it in the script body to any other.
