Editor's review ImageCropper
9 This is the homepage of the ImageCropper tool. ImageCropper assists creating animations by automatic cropping of any sets of images to their usual non-transparent rectangular locatioin. This can be done with other graphics tools, however, it is often a rather troublesome as well as perilous work. ImageCropper does this pretty easy as well as quick, moreover, permits cropping dozens of animations in minutes. ImageCropper had been enhanced in the course of the creation of content for my isometric game engine, as the cropping of hundreds of animations actually became a nuisance after a while. ImageCropper has been written in Java as well as thus runs on all platforms for which Java Runtime Enviroments subsists (Windows, MacOSX, Linux, ...). It is an Open Source project which has been licensed under the GNU Public License as well as hosted on SourceForge. How to use it With a view to running this tool you require a Java Runtime Atmosphere, at least in version 5. If you have it installed, a simple double click on ImageCropper.jar ough to begin the application. On a few systems you could have to open a shell, change to the folder which contains ImageCropper.jar as well as type java -jar ImageCropper.jar Use the file open dialogue to Multi-Select the images that has the single frames of the animation. Multi-selecting works through holding Ctrl (Windows, Linux) or Cmd (Mac) whilst clicking on the images. The images will have to be cropped to their common non-transparent rectangular area whilst they have been loaded. You can then optionally Process Them using the options in the "Combine" menu. Once you have been satisfied, use the file save dialogue towards saving the cropped images to a folder of our choice. The saved images will have the same file names as the original images, therefore you ought to choose a folder different from the folder having the original files.
