scribalbum_2.py

Back to: Automatic import of images from a directory using a script

I've reworked scribalbum.py to avoid the need for Tkinter, instead using valueDialog() for entries. You will see two of these, the first for entry of the directory to be searched, the second to choose image file types. Since the Scripter API does not yet have something like checkboxes, the most intuitive way I could think of was to use letter mnemonics, j = jpg, t = tif and so on, in Python using a dictionary approach. In this version I have deleted SVGs, since these do not import properly, but added uppercase equivalents.

As with the others, you can use relative or absolute paths for the directory, but since the directory is a label at the top of the page, an absolute directory entry will be more informative.

It would be nice to be able to use a requestor to click your way to a directory, but so far Scripter does not have a way to do this; you can use fileDialog() to select a file, but there is nothing for choosing a directory.

# This version for US Letter paper
# Puts 4 pictures per page, to allow for text frame notes in between
# This version does without Tkinter, uses valueDialog(), to give you an
# Entry dialog for the name of a directory, another to choose file type(s)
# Filters out files ending with .jpg, .png, .tif, .gif, .pdf, and
# uppercase equivalents.
# Makes a new document, and will not fault if you already have one.
