Hey everybody, I recently made a simple Python program that would show me how the brightness histograms of my images compared to others'. This taught me that I was overusing pure blacks and pure whites, and ignoring the low values.
(A brightness histogram is what you see when you run Threshold in Photoshop.)
Stinkypanda said it should be an app, and I found an easy way to make one out of my script. If you'd like to try it, here it is.
That link will let you download a 15 megabyte rar. Inside is a single folder called 'dist'. Extract that anywhere you like, then open up dist. Inside there will be an executable called "histogram_comparer.exe". Double click that and follow the on-screen instructions. God willing, you should get a csv within that dist folder named "histogram.csv". You can use that data to make yourself a line graph like I did.
This may only work on Windows, and even then I'm not sure. This is my first time packaging a Python script into an executable.
You won't be able to paste your directory paths into the prompt, you'll have to type them out. Sorry about that -- hopefully your folders have short names!
