Batch resizing in Photoshop, step by step
One important element that is often left out of beginner Dreamweaver courses is how to make your photos web-ready. Today’s cameras turn out multi-megapixel images that are several feet wide when dropped into a web page at web resolution. Here’s how to take a folder of high-resolution images and turn them into smaller files that will display at about 5-6″ wide at 72dpi using Photoshop.
- Select Scripts > Image Processor from the File menu
- Click Select Folder in the Image Processor window.
- Choose the folder that contains the pictures you want to resize.
- Choose a location for the resized photos.
- You may want to make a folder for the newly resized images to keep them separate from your other images.
- Select the new folder.
- In the main Image Processor window, choose “Save as JPEG”, and “Resize to Fit.” Enter maximum width and height in the boxes as shown. Click “Run”. After a minute or so, the images will start being resized.
- Check the new folder to see that your resized images have appeared.
