Actions: Image to fit Canvas size?

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by NorthernAngel, Jan 21, 2004.

  1. I have over 10000 jpegs which need to be resized and scaled to 650x650
    pixels at 72 dpi. They need to keep their original proportions, thus some
    will have tram lines of the background colour.

    Now these 10000 images are all different resolutions and more importantly
    different orientations. I'm using Photoshop 7 (Win)

    I was wondering whether there is a series of actions that I can apply to the
    directory of images, that would automatically do this for me?

    The only way I can think of is to separate the images into portrait and
    landscape directories and then e.g. set an action for the landscape images
    to make the 'image size' width = 650 pixels and then the 'canvas size'
    height = 650 pixels.

    Is there an action I can apply to the whole directory though? portrait and
    landscape alike? I need something like - 'canvas size' width = 650 pixels x
    height = 650 pixels, and then transform - fit to canvas! Something like
    that - but is there a function that will do it?
    If you could give me any advice at all I'd much apreciate it!

    Kind regards,

    Try File>Automate>Fit Image. You can use it in an action. Then add the
    resetting of the canvas size to the action. I think it will do what you
    want with a little experimentation.
