So I've searched the internet/google up and down for at least 3 hours and still haven't found anything that works:
I have those small .png files that are photographed color samples of products and I need to make a catalogue.
I need to sort/arrange these samples BY COLOR in a harmonious way and so far I've done this by hand but it's a tedious task and it's driving me nuts.
I really want to sort them by algorithm / via software in a layout of my choosing (10 columns by 8 rows).
I thought this would be easy and there actually are 2-3 applications that were written sometime in the 90's and sort of do what I need.. but! they are broken as sh** and basically unusable for my purposes.
Here's the programs that I tried for image sorting purposes:
ImageSorter (all versions I could find): This is the main one that gets recommended all over the net, in dubious and completely forsaken discussion threads from seasons past. It's crap and I can't use it..NO ONE should use it. Please don't use it, it will just crash and disappoint you.
OSForensics: This is the only other software I tried that was actually kind of doing what I needed: Sorting the images by color. But, once again, the results were very bad and all over the place.
I tried 1 or 2 more programs with names like ImageView or something like that, but nothing worked.
I also searched stackoverflow for some homebrew self-coding solution but no one seems to even have this problem (which is rare) so I'm completely stuck now.
Thanks for reading and if anyone out there can point me in the right direction: That would be beyond greatness! :)
