I've opened a lot of images (jpg) to edit them in GIMP

After that I want to "File>Overwrite" and export each of them again, effectively overwriting the jpg files originally opened.

How to quick overwrite all instead of doing "File>Overwrite" one by one?


Another thing is every time I paste the new layer on top of the current image with Ctrl+V, the new layer always start at the center of the image,
can I make always start at any corners? for example, lower right corner or upper left corner. It will save me a lot of effort if it initially pastes to the corner

As far as I know you can't overwrite multiple files at the same time.
Default paste is centre, try paste into a selection or resized layer.

How to "paste into a selection or resized layer"? I don't quite understand~~
Can you show me the steps?

If the files are opened through the sequential script by (Rob A) will they not overwrite the original when done one at a time?
Only thing I found with using it is you cannot 'undo' any of your edits while in that mode. So you need to make sure you know what you want done before committing.
Instead of opening all your files at once.....Once one is closed the next one will open in that folder of the same file name (ie. .jpg, etc.) So picking a folder with this script is similar to picking all the images.

After you have added it to your scripts you will find it under file > sequential....at the bottom of the drop down menu
Thread where script is explained is here

Kenny1999, if you want to overwrite files, be sure you have copies from the original images, in case something goes wrong.

If you are trying to position a paste other than centre; make a selection 'larger' than the image you wish to paste, approximately where you would like it to be. When you paste it creates a floating selection. Next Create a new layer and it will auto size to fit your paste image. Move it if need be. It's really not much different than a basic paste.

Using a positioned layer; Create a new layer the size of the paste image. Use the Alignment tool to position it.

If your trying to do a batch, ImageMagick is worth a look.
