This software is licensed under the GNU GPL.
RequirementsDigest is written in the fantastic Python language and uses the python-imaging module to read images and create thumbnails.
DownloadDownload it here: digest.py.gz.
Supported and unsupported file typesDigest supports all filetypes supported by python-imaging; currently this includes JPG, JPEG, JPE, GIF, PNG, TIF, TIFF, AND BMP.
In addition to creating thumbnails for supported file types, Digest will also use thumbnails for files or directories created by other programs or created by hand. For example, if you have created a thumbnail for a file named ./foo-bar.mpeg, digest will look for a thumbnail in ./.cache/foo-bar.jpg. A thumbnail for a directory ./dirname/ would be located in ./.cache/dirname.jpg.
If a directory contains images and has no hand-created thumbnail in its parent directory, digest will use the first image in the directory to generate a thumbnail for the directory.
UsageDigest can be invoked from the command line with a list of directories to index; if the list is empty, Digest will index the current directory. Command line options can appear anywhere in the list of directories and apply to all directories.
