Batch oilify in GIMP

I’m pretty new to image editing. I want to be able to batch oilify a number of images. However, I can’t find a GUI option in GIMP to do this.

In the filters menu there is a Batch process.. option, but this only allows for basic operations such as resizing, cropping, and so on.

Is there a way I can do a batch process from within a GUI? If this is not possible, is there some command line, or script method I could use?


The most user-friendly solution I found to this problem was to use the BIMP plugin for GIMP. Here is the link. (does that rhyme?)

In Linux/Ubuntu, download the BIMP zip file from here, unzip it to a location of your choice. Next open a terminal and go to this directory. You need to install some pre-requisites first:

sudo apt-get install libgimp2.0-dev
sudo apt-get isntall libpcre3-dev

Next, you can install BIMP by typing

make && sudo make install

Once compiled and installed successfully, the BIMP option is available from the “File” menu in GIMP.
