How can Automator or Applescript rotate 500,000 images in folders and subfolders.
I have very specific question.
I've got 500,000 images that sit in 98 subfolders. Some of the subfolders contain 25,000 images.
Now my question: is there any script/automator workflow that I can use?
I was trying to create a workflow:
1. Ask for Finder Items
2. Get Folder Contents (tick repeat for each subfolder found)
3. Rotate images
It works OK, but only for these folders where there is less than 4,096 files:
I normally receive following error message:
'Rotate images failed - 1 error
too many arguments (12019) -- limit is 4096'
Is there any way to increase this limit or create completely different apple script?
By the way I'm running OS Mountain Lion
I really hope that someone will help me with this one.

have a look on ImageMagick (http://www.imagemagick.org) ... a great toolset for image manipulation ...
that in combination with a shell script running recursive through your files will do it.

Just make sure you have a backup in case something goes wrong
