Rules

The Rules node is available in the Pro version of Retrobatch. Rules filter out images based on set criteria. Rules are a powerful way of sorting images quickly based on the listed options below.

Click the '+' button in the inspector palette to add additional rules criteria within the same node. See the image above as an example of combining rules.

Tip: Hold down the option key to duplicate a Rules node quickly. This is a timesaver when sorting images that 'contain' an option in one branch of a workflow, and creating a separate branch for images that do not contain that option. Just change the top dropdown menu of the duplicated Rules node to 'none', and follow-up with a Write Images node.

The top classification, any classification, and classification confidence options require that the Classification node be present before the Rules node.
