How to do it in Photoshop?

 

In the example I use below I am going to resize the photos, optimize them as low resolution images and export them to a new folder.

 

Before starting: remember that neither Photoshop nor Fireworks offers high resolution resamplers like we do!

 

What you'll need:

  • Few hundredths dollars to buy the Photoshop software
  • A folder full of images
  • Photoshop or Fireworks - I'm using CS & MX but the rules are very similar for older versions
  • A spare 5 minutes

    Photoshop (PS)

    A. Recording your Action

    1. Open PS
    2. Open you Actions Palette (windows – actions)
    3. Click on the chevron top right of the palette
    4. Choose New Set
    5. Name it ‘picture resize’ (or your choice)
    6. Click OK (you'll see the folder in the palette window)
    7. Click the same chevron in the actions palette twice

    15. Choose medium compression JPEG (quality 3)
    16. Click save > choose a folder destination (this will be final destination for all you batched files)
    17. Close the file
    18. Click the Stop Recording button in the Actions Palette

    B. Applying your Action to a Folder of Files
    1. Click file > automate > batch

How to do it in Fireworks

  1. Buy Fireworks
  2. Open FW
  3. Open an image
  4. Modify > Canvas > Image size > Choose 5%
  5. Click OK
  6. Click file > export preview
  7. Select JPEG 3
  8. Click OK (not save)
  9. Click file > export
  10. Select Destination

  8. Click Add
  9. Click next

Problem: You will be unable to suppress the save dialogue box so I have to click save for every image, which is still quicker than repeating all but very monotonous.
