STB microservices are a set of workhorse tools for maintaining scientific digital image repositories. The tools implement photo renumbering, metadata harvesting (OAI-PMH), use of GLite for very large batch processing, Web-based high-resolution viewers, processing, long-term preservation, and more.
dmap2gcode is a depth map image cutting program. A depth map is a greyscale image in which the darkness or lightness of each pixel corresponds to the depth (or height) of the object at each point. dmap2gcode supports various cutter geometries (flat, ball nose, and v-bit), two types of cut entry (straight and arc), a full set of roughing options, and various other settings, all controlled through a graphical user interface. The g-code output from dmap2gcode is compatible with LinuxCNC and Mach3.
Urban Lightscape is a photo filter for exposure correction, localized brightness adjustments, dodging and burning, and the introduction of synthetic lighting to a photo. A simple "double-click-and-drag" paradigm is used to place control points on a photo, and clever edge detection localises and interpolates lightness adjustments around and between these points. Results are rapid, with additional controls for more subtle refinements.
image-deduplication-tool is a script designed to scan specified paths and calculate the DCT hashes of all the images there. It compares the hashes to find closest-looking image pairs, despite various alternations (such as crop, rotation, gamma/color correction, noise, etc.), optionally presenting them in a feh image viewer for the operator to easily compare and remove one of the versions. It uses libpHash to produce and compare perceptual hashes.
FF Multi Converter is a simple graphical application that converts audio, video, image, and document files between all popular formats, using and combining other programs. It uses ffmpeg for audio/video files, unoconv for document files, and the ImageMagick library for image file conversions.
