View Full Version : Action/Batch Resize bigger side

10 October 2004, 02:40 PM

i have a palm tungsten c which has a resolution of 320x320. i often put photos on it to show them to friends or something else. since the resize algorythm of the palm software sucks (very ugly results) i started using photoshop cs to resize the images using a batch action.

this is where the problem starts, since i set "constrain porpotions" and resized the width to 320. works fine, looks great. but if this action is performed on an image that is higher than wide, the y-resolution is bigger than 320 so the stupid palm programs resizes it... (ergo: looks ugly again)

my question is: can i set an option/make a batch that detects the longer side (wether x or y) of an image and resizes that side to 320, constraining the aspect ratio?

thanks in advance

Look for the Fit Image command. I'm pretty sure that will work for you.
In PS 7, it's File > Automate > Fit Image.
