Huge image file.

Postby sped1530 » Fri Jul 03, 2009 2:31 am

I have a huge image file with like 4000 images. I only need 1200 of them.
How can I compare a text list of the images I need with the image file and pull or copy just those images to a file?

the images are labeled:
ja100.jpg, ja200.jpg, hja300.jpg, ja400.jpg, uja500.jpg, sja100.jpg, and so on.

My list has: ja100.jpg, ja200.jpg, hja300.jpg, uja500.jpg, and so on.

So what I want to do is compare those two files and come out with a file with: ja100.jpg, ja200.jpg, hja300.jpg, uja500.jpg, and so on in it.

Can you compare to different types of files?

Sorry, I'm not quite understand what is the format of your image file with 4000 other images?

What I have is a 4000 jpg images. Then I have a list of 1200 images that I need.

I want to be able to pull the jpg images that are on my list out of the huge file and put them in a folder that I can use.

so it's (jpg folder) - (list of images needed) = (jpg folder for images needed)

Thanks for the quick response.

What file is that? Or do you always refer to folder with a lot of images? In this case I think the easiest way is to write a small program, that will create some dummy files by your list. Then we can compare your big folder with new one, finding only matching files. Now from Synchronize It! we can copy your files to new location.

On other hand, I can write small tool that will copy to other folder files by list from file.

On even other hand, there are such tools already. Robocopy should do that. Check also http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index ... 228AARJF58
