JPEGTRANS plus RESIZE plus IPTC

Post by Peter2 »

I stumbled into my semi-finished project from this spring where I posted already some questions

I want to
- always convert (mostly) JPG to JPG (basically solved)
- always keep the quality (unsolved because of bug in software)
- always rotate to exif-orientation (semi-unsolved due to unclear behaviour of jpegtrans which can only be used as single parameter)
- always write IPTC-data to JPG (depending from jpegtrans)
- optionally "resize" to 2000px
- optionally add text to the image

So I want to ask for the best usage and order of the parameters:
- jpegtrans always alone and as first command?
- then IPTC and resize as second, independent call of Nconvert?
- then optional text?
- what to do with quality?
- ....

Thanks for advice!

First lossless command:
- jpegtrans
- IPTC
And:
- resize, text

To sum up - I need three independent, following calls of nconvert.exe?
