Maybe there will be packages for installation on different systems later on.

  • Perl 5.30 (or newer)

Additionally the following perl modules need to be installed:

  • Cwd
  • File::HomeDir
  • File::Basename
  • File::Copy
  • File::Find::Rule
  • File::Find
  • File::Spec::Functions


All scripts are commandline / shell tools which should run on *n*x and Windows when the prerequistes are met.

ART helper scripts

Helper scripts to manage files which where handled by ART.

file mover


Moves all already converted raw files and their corresponding jpegs to a given folder.

generic scripts

jpeg divider


Moves all jpeg files (suffixes .jpg and .jpeg) in a folder to the subfolder JPEG (or a given subfolder).

Silkypix helper scripts

Helper scripts to manage the sidecar data files created by Silkypix Developer Studio.

Silkypix usually uses a folder structure similar to this example:

base folder
|_ RAW0001.DNG
|_ RAW0002.DNG
   |_ RAW0001.jpg
   |_ RAW0002.tif
   |_ RAW0001.DNG.10.spd
   |_ RAW0002.DNG.10.spd
   |_ RAW0003.DNG.10.spf

orphaned sidecar cleaner


Deletes all sidecar files in the given directory or alternatively in the current working directory when the associated raw file is missing.

multiversion sidecar cleaner


Deletes Silkypix Sidecar files when newer versions of the files are available. This usually happens when a file is opened in a newer version of Silkypix, as the sidecar files are version specific.
