Our featured video for March was titled Using Adobe Bridge to Batch Resize Images. This is a new video that complements a prior video Batch Resizing using Adobe Bridge.
What’s the difference you might ask? Can’t I just use one video for everything?
Well, here are the answers you’ve been looking for.
When we are Using Adobe Bridge to Batch Resizing images – we are using Bridge as our starting point, but we are actually using a script named Image Processor to determine the maximum pixel dimension that we want our images to end up. We don’t crop/change the aspect ratio of the original image. So if our start image is a 4×6 ratio, our ending image while smaller, is still a 4×6 ratio.
If we need to crop the image to change the aspect ratio (from 4×6 to 4×5) or crop the image for artistic reasons, the “Using Adobe Bridge to Batch Resize Images” techniques will not work. We need to do something different.
“Batch Cropping using Adobe Bridge” gives us the flexibility to apply a batch crop across a series of images, and also to be able to fine tune the crop. We can also use the tools introduced in this video to resize images at the same time.
And don’t worry, both these techniques will work on RAW as well as JPG images!
