I seek to run the windows version of dcraw on a selected picture via plugin and then have the plugin automatically import the resulting TIF image back into LR so it is displayed beside the original raw file.
I am no developer at all but understand that plugins can be created with some scripting code.
I tried something like this here but failed:
local LrTasks = import 'LrTasks'
local LrApplication = import 'LrApplication'
local catalog = LrApplication.activeCatalog()
local cat_photos = catalog.targetPhotos
for i, photo in ipairs(cat_photos) do
local file = photo.path
LrTasks.execute(C:programs/dcrawps64.exe "-T" "-4" "-G" "20" "-v" " ..file.. ")
There are a couple of issues:
a) is the approach ok generally?
b) I have serious problems with the path to the application. Quotes or not? forward or backslashes used?
c) I seem to have same issues with getting the blanks and single and double quotes correct.
Any hints anyone?
