Excellent ! It allows to open easily (Open with) the file(s) with whatever application (gimp, photoflow, …).
Suggestion: why not to move the command Go to Folder into selected image[s] widget ? (if possible, … to save screen room)
Edit: except that explorer Open with doesn’t appear with multiple files selected …
Edit2: OpenInExplorer opens a window for every image selected. This would not be convenient to open hugin for example. On the other hand explorer.exe seems to unable to open with multiple files selected at a time.
If you are wanting a script that can be re-purposed in the manner you are discussing I would recomend my Open in PS script instead. It has both “open in” and “Export to” capabilities. It was intended for Photoshop, but you could point to any .exe you like to. Additionally, in that script all the files are strung together into a single command call so selecting multiple and sending to hugin would work in that case.
@Tobias a pull request has been made to get this script in to the master lua scripts repo.
@phweyland per your suggestion in the near future I’ll be making a quick edit to this to move the Open In Explorer button to the selected images widget.
In regards to the comments above, in case I was not clear: This script is intended only to open selected files in explorer. Each selected file will open a new explorer window with the image highlighted/selected.
If you are looking for a script to send files to an external application please refer to my OpenInPS script which can be easily assigned to any program:
