Try right click on a file or a group of files - open with - others - type in "terminal - e /path/to/your/script.sh %U"
you might want to replace "terminal" with the name of the terminal emulator you use but I think it is called "terminal" in xubuntu.
I also add '--no-close' option to review the output printed in the terminal before closing it.I am not sure if such option exists in xubuntu terminal but you can try.

I'm not KDE (one of the disadvantages of Digikam for me, it pulls in
quite a lot of KDE stuff still) but I would think I could do something
like the above on xubuntu by setting the mime type as you say for JPG.

I'll try it, thanks.
