I often use the clipboard auto save to capture webex, Teams or zoom sessions.
I would like later on being able to select identified parts being in while over black
background, in order to process the whole content using OCR tools.
While in batch script creation I don't found any Select part (like for a crop
operation) so that to apply an invert color only on this identified part.

Is that possible? what about including in new version? would it be possible
using Python?

Thanks for any help you could provide.

You're correct that there is no such option in the Image | Batch Process dialog. However, there is a different way of creating batch processes, and I think that may work in this case. Try this:
  • Open one of your images in the viewer/editor (simply by pressing enter or double-clicking on it).
  • Do whatever you want your batch process to do (select a section of the image, invert its colors, etc)
  • Now go to View | Actions in the editor's menu and press Create Batch.
  • I think you'll find your own way from there..  ;)
