I would like to know how to (as fast as possible) mass edit (means everything at once - around 100 images): What I want to do is remove both (upper and downer one) big black lines as well as remove (so simply cut a bit more of an image) the taskbar at the down side.

Instead of the cut part, it should NOT be white color but just black color (+ taskbar below) removed.

How do I do that with around 100 images? Searching for the quickest way.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You can use Python with Python Imaging Library to crop images.

easy_install PIL

Then in your script:

import Image

For each image, crop away the edges--e.g.,

im =
region = im.crop( (100,100,500,600) )

It graphic related. Not just programming. – YesPlease Jul 26 '12 at 5:26
IrfanView is the way to go if you don't like programming. – mnmnc Jul 27 '12 at 10:29

I would recomend IrfanView for batch processing images. It has a lot of options for cropping.

File -> Batch Conversion -> Tick Use advanced options -> Advanced button
