Photoshop :: Batch Resizing Based On File Size

Aug 20, 2007

I have about 1000 images that need to all be resized to 5MB. All the images are in different color modes, have different resolutions and pixel sizes. Is there any way to make an action to resize image to 5MB? I don't care about pixel dimentions or resolutions, I just need all the images to be 5MB.

I'm running Photoshop CS 2 on Mac OS X 10.4

Photoshop :: Resizing And File Size?

Dec 13, 2005

1) How do i deal with digital photos from a camera? I mean, if i have a
1280x960 300dpi 3.5MB photo , how do i resize this into a smaller photo to be uploaded to a website? Should i change the resolution to 72dpi? which makes it 307x230 with a file size of 207 kb. But how come when i tried to change the pixel dimentions to 307x230 (leaving it at 300dpi) the file size was the same at 207kb? how should i really resize photos? how do i deal with the resolution, pixel dimensions and document size?

2) In saving graphics to be uploaded to a website, whether a resized digital photo or an original artwork, what format do i use? Jpeg? Gif? Png?
I normally use Jpeg but what confuses me is the jpeg options, whats should i use Baseline Standard or Baseline Optimized? Another thing, how high should the quality be, im afraid to set the quality to high because it might take time to view on the webpage but i also dont want to sacrifice the quality.

Photoshop :: Save For Web Vs Resizing Vs File Size Vs PNG

Mar 14, 2012

In playing around with some settings while saving a .png file, I noticed some weird results. For this example, the original image is 300 x 300, but I want the final size to be 200 x 200. I get different results depending on the order I perform the following operations (I never thought the order mattered until now).
1. start with 300 x 300 image, choose save for web, select png-24, with transparency, white matte, convert to sRGB, change image size to 200 x 200, then save - the file size is 37kb.

2. start with 300 x 300 image, use Photoshop's "image size" to change to 200 x 200, then save for web, etc - the file size is 111kb
So depending on which step I resize the image, the file size is significantly different - if I resize BEFORE using save for web, the file size is much larger. This is just weird to me, but I always resize AFTER choosing save for web, so that's why I've never caught this until now. In case you ask, while using Photoshop's "image size", all three options are checked at the bottom of that window, so nothing is getting re-sampled or anything like that.
The only thing I can think of is each of those methods treat pixel data differently when reducing the dimensions. When I overlay both exported .png files on top of each other, I see no difference in pixel quality and/or color shift - so why the big difference in file size? if I just save the file straight to .png, the sharpness is much better, and the file size is 46 kb. I did notice when saving for web, the colors become a little more saturated.I've never really paid much attention to the results when exporting .png's.

Photoshop :: Action For Resizing File Size

Sep 8, 2008

way to specify a certain MB to hit when resizing images using an action?

The reason I ask is that I work with TIFF files that generally start at 60-100MB which I then have to resize to be around 25MB - and I'd like to build this into an action that I can repeat on all images.

At the moment, I'm doing a little guess work when creating an action that employs the Fit Image function. If the image height:width is close to that of A4, I find setting the fit image option to around 3300x3300 pixels usually works. However, a lot of images that I process don't fit to such proportions, which is why I'd much rather be able to set 25 MB as the target size instead, if this is possible...

Photoshop :: Batch File Size Conversion

Jun 19, 2009

I have an older version of Photoshop, (7.0), but I'm sure the Batch Conversion Process is similar with all versions.I have a folder of photos, (large file sizes), I'd like to reduce each file size to a little bigger than a Thumnail size. This is hopefully something I can do bysetting the same parameters to all the photos.Here's what I've figured out (so far)FileAutomateBatchChoose Source FolderChoose Destination FolderThat's about it - when I choose both folders, I can't seem to pull up the parameters to reduce the file sizes.

Photoshop :: Export Fixed File Size With A BATCH Automation

Aug 12, 2003

does anyone know if it's possible to export a desired (fixed) file size with a batch automation in Photoshop? For example:

I have 50 images (*.jpg) that have different file sizes (25k, 15k, 45k etc) now I would like to export a fixed file size to 10k for all images...

I have tried this in Photoshop and in Fireworks, but the Programs exported 10K or less and sometimes even greater than 10k

I would really be happy if someone knows a way to do this or if there are any stand-alone programs that can automate and export targeted file sizes.

Photoshop :: Census Data And Batch Export To File With Each Layer Sent To Canvas Of That Size?

May 3, 2013

>ap alterations. I have collected many (over 100k) screeenshots of census data. In the interest of not using the actual captures (intelectual property restrictions), I have extracted the data alone to a new multi layered file with each address as its own layer. Some have 1 person, some have 200 people.

Can I export each layer to file in such a way that the canvas will not be the 75 inch canvas in the parent image? I needed to use such a large transparent background because population density is very high. Is ther an autodetect feature?

Photoshop :: CS3 Batch Resizing Bug?

Sep 21, 2008

This has been "bugging" me for a while.

1) Open a raw file (.CR2)
2) output the file to JPG or open directly
===> i.e. the resulting image is 3888 x 2592
3) use Automate > Fit Image
===> i.e. 1200 pixels (reducing the image by a factor of 3.24)
======> The result should be 1200 x 800 pixels

However the batch conversion would be result in 1200 x 801 pixel.

Even if I were to add a step 2.5 as follows
2.5) image > image size > 1200 x 800

After automate > Fit Image (1200) it would still result in 1200 x 801 pixels!

What's broken with photoshop?
The only fix I've stumbled across so far would be to use an external programme to strip all the exif and attached metadata, only then would the "Fit Image" script work.

Having one extra pixel doesn't really matter most of the times, but it's does get on my nerves.
Advice sought: How can I fix this?

Photoshop :: Batch Processing - Resizing/downsampling

Dec 7, 2007

I will try and describe my situation regarding the manipulation of images that have various dimensions, and to downsize and down sample to a particular uniform size for all. After I can create this so called action, I will then use it to process thousands of images through batch processing.


- [Origin] Folder Containing Hi-Res CMYK camera-ready .tiff photos

- [Destination] Folder containing low-res RGB web .jpg photos

- [New File Preset] 350px wide x 375px tall; RGB; Adobe 1998; White background; 8bit

The current process that I use to get my camera ready files to web pics, is through an action that I have set up.

These steps play in my action (including new file preset, specs above):

-1. Hi-res file contains only 1 layer which contains a mask to cut the image from it's background;

-2. Selection is made from layer mask

-3. Layer is set to active retaining mask selection

-4. copy (image contained within selection is copied)

-5. paste into new file (preset above [New File preset])

From this point I manually size the photo to fit within the new file size preset by transforming the pasted layer and dragging (downsize) by the handles. After this I simply save file as a .jpg

This action is just fine for single files but will not work for batch processing because 99 percent of my hi-res files are much larger than 350x375 which will leave them pasted at actual size and cut off.

My first solution was to include a step in the action that would resize the image down to the size needed. The problem that I am now faced with is that when you include the transform command in an action, it just records the 'percent' value which has varying results.

To sum it up, I would like to batch process many images at once with an action that will take my destination images and manipulate them and store them in my target low-res folder. The final dimensions will be 350px wide x 375px tall which is rectangular. My files vary in size and proportion; some being tall rectangular, wide rectangular, and square. The initial dpi is 300 but when finished it will need to be 72.

I have experimented using the 'image resize' command but not getting a result that will work with all proportions of images.

Photoshop :: Batch Resizing Width/Resolution Keeps Changing Each Other

Mar 12, 2009

I am using Photoshop CS3 Extended
I am familiar with batch jobs in Photoshop.
I have images that vary in pixel size and resolution.

This project is for an online gift registry. First, we are hosting the images, but they have restraints due their web/system programming. So what I was told by the company was they need the images to be 300 x 300 pixel images at 72dpi. They said they would settle for 300 width only and let me scale the proportions and not worry about the height as I want to batch the process. But they stressed 300 width and 72dpi.

What I have tried is batch resizing all of them to 300 pixel width, worked fine. Then I batched changing the resolution to 72. But it changed all the pixel dimensions to various sizes. So then I tried to batch 300 pixel width and 72 resolution at one time at it ends up the same way. So what do I need to do to get 300 x 300 pixel and 72dpi?

1)I have read plenty of PPI vs DPI. Is "resolution" in Photoshop, PPI?
2)Was what they probably meant by 72dpi actually 72ppi?
3)How do I accomplish this?
