J2S has released an update for J2STask, bringing it to version 1.2. J2STask is a utility designed for automated batch image processing. The update features task triggering and imaging bug fixes. According to J2S:
J2S is pleased to announce the release of J2STask 1.2, an image processing server application for an image workflow on MacOS X.
Aimed at professionals, J2STask is a robot used to batch process images: it scans a local or ftp source folder at regular intervals and processes the files it contains according to the task settings. The files are then sent to one or two target folders.
Combined with J2SProfiler, an IPTC profile editor, J2STask is also used to route documents according to the IPTC data they contain i.e. if the IPTC caption of a file does not comply with the defined IPTC profile, it will be moved to an "Error" folder instead of being forwarded to the target folder.
New in this version: J2STask features the possibility to trigger a default task by drag&drop and to launch AppleScript scripts. A few issues have been solved concerning the processing of some TIFF and JPEG files.
