Can't get there from here, or can I?

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by Richard W. Pettengill, Dec 6, 2004.

  1. I have managed to shrink / resize about 30 jpegs that were, did I say I did
    not save the pics first on a disk?, 3008 w X 2000 h to 150 h x 100w. I thot
    I was making a page of thumbnails for my website. Now that everything is
    150 x 100, is there any way that I can enlarge / restore them? I suspect
    that I have lost all, but still have hope that the learning process won't be
    quite so devaatating.

    Sorry. You can't restore them. But here's a little down and dirty trick -
    next time use File > Automate > Web Photo Gallery against the folder of
    original files. It will in turn create a folder of thumbnails as well as
    other folders. Then just keep the thumbnail folder and throw away the rest
    of the gallery. Instant happiness. :)

    Hi Richard,

    It's not possible to fix this problem directly, but there are two
    possibilities for recovering your files.

    If these images were captured recently you may be able to recover them from
    the camera's flash card. I use a program called Photorescue- from . You can run the demo and see what
    it can recover before buying. There are other excellent programs that do
    the same thing.

    The second, less likely, possibility is running the same program on your
    hard drive, just in case the original copies of the jpegs are still there.
    For that matter, any disk file recovery program might locate your originals.

    How do you adjust the size of resultant images & or thumbnails using
    automated web photo gallery?

    Help tells me :-

    "To set options for the gallery pages, choose Gallery Images from the
    Options pop-up menu. Then do the following:
    a.. For Border Size, enter the width of the border around the image in
    a.. To have Photoshop resize the source images for placement on the gallery
    pages, select Resize Images. Then choose an option for the image size from
    the pop-up menu or enter a size in pixels. For JPEG Quality, choose an
    option from the pop-up menu, enter a value between 0 and 12, or drag the
    slider. A higher value results in better image quality but larger file

    but I can't find "Gallery Images from the Options pop-up menu"

    Any help appreciated.

    This is confusing but follow my instructions.

    When you select Web Photo Gallery a dialog box will open up.

    Midway down in the window is the word "Options:" and a box to the right of
    it. At the end of the box there are arrows. Click on that and it will give
    you options for entries in the box and attributes for it.

    You know you have it when you see entries for General, Banner, Large
    Images, Thumbnails etc.

    Drive Rescue is a good option on this, it's freeware and can be found at-

    Unfortunately if you've done much work on the machine since deleting the
    files your chances of recovery are getting slimmer. Also recommend
    recovering to another HDD if that's an option.

    Good luck

    now that's embarrassing. I'm not even going to say how long I spent
    looking...I thought there must have been an options toolbar that I had to
    enable but couldn't find.

    Thanks a lot.
