I am a professional sports photographer trying to fully automate the editing of photos during an event. I am using a wireless transmitter on my camera that is capable of transmitting to an ftp server. The idea is this: when I take a good photo, I can a press a button and have that photo transmitted to an ftp server, where a person can then pull and edit that photo. I would like to get rid of that person (not literally, just free them up :lol: ). Here are the steps I'm looking to complete:
* Camera transmits image via wireless network to FTP server's main directory
* WinSCP waits until image is fully transmitted (something like 5 seconds after last modified date hasn't changed, if possible).
This is to avoid partial images (with areas of grey/black) from being transmitted
* WinSCP transmits image to folder called "Import" on workstation
* Application (Adobe Lightroom) processes and automatically exports image to "Export" folder on workstation
* WinSCP waits until image is fully exported (again, by watching the last modified date)
* WinSCP transmits edited image back to FTP server in a folder on main directory called "Edited"
Where do I begin with this? I've read a lot of the documentation on scripting, but it's still clear as mud. I guess the most difficult part is ensuring no partial image files are transmitted.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
