Ability to Give Photoshop Two Sets of Batch Resize Criteria at One Time

When batch resizing currently, Photoshop can't tell if images are Landscape or Profile thus requiring images to be separated into wide and tall folders before processing each folder individually. It would be helpful if when batch processing to set a maximum width if a photo is wide and a maximum height if a photo is tall and have photoshop evaluate each and proportionally cut images down accordingly. A proportional setting is also nice to have when images are the same format but have different dimensions.

Try this:

  • First write two actions: one for Landscape and one for Portrait
  • Then write a Conditional action (panel menu)
    If Landscape, run the Landscape action
    Else, run the Portrait action

Then batch with the Conditional action

There is also the possibility of recording the File > Automate > Fit Image script into a Batch Action, specifying a maximum width and height to proportionally resize the longest edge to (with an optional setting to not upscale smaller images).

I have numerous scripts and actions, and I use the conditionals as @jane-e describes. Works great.

@Lumigraphics Agreed but honestly all Adobe needed was a simple if or statement in their and the ability to enter two criteria at once. Scripts are great but this is a feature that when you're announcing AI, then lets use the AI in some of the less glamour but certainly as important places as well.

I'm confused.

 

Did you read my post from yesterday telling you how to create an IF (Conditional) Action? This has been in PS for about a decade or so.

If you're just dealing with images all the same aspect ratio, some portrait and some landscape, set both the horizontal and vertical perameters in the "image processor" to the higher value. For instance. If you have a bunch of images and you want them all to be 2000 by 3000 pixels and you have mixed orientations, then set the horizontal and vertical number to 3000. This way all of your images will come out the same size - either 2000 by 3000 pixels or 3000 by 2000 pixels. Don't enter the shorter dimension at all.

I would like to see an option of producing multiple image sizes in one go in the image processor though.

Again, this already exists: File > Automate > Fit Image.

 

Fit Image is perfect for running batches. Don't use Image Size for that.

Help me out...I'm struggling to understand what I get from "fit image" that I don't from the Image Processor. Seems like I have a lot more options in the Image Processor. What am I missing?

Fit image is a single command to be used as a step in a bespoke workflow. The Image Processor and Image Processor Pro scripts provide a prebuilt generic workflow.
