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.

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 = Image.open(filename)
region = im.crop( (100,100,500,600) )

  • IrfanView is the way to go if you don't like programming.

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
