Resizing and stuff


My kids' mum just asked me if I could resize some pics taken mostly on a variety of iPhones

Sizes ranging from 90kb and about 400px to 5mb and thousands of Pixels

Sure I said thinking I could automate in photoshop but IM STUCK!

Apparently she has to get them to 127kb file size at 96 pip

Now that sounds a bit daft to me but apparently thats what she needs

I can't work out how to do it-The only thing I managed to do so far is get them all sRGB (which they weren't) and set to 96ppi (in IMAGE SIZE)

I though of using 'save for web' to get their file sixes equal but it takes ages for just one image as some are still several thousand pixels big

Tried in LR too but it can only do about 10 of the 30 pics and flags up error for the rest just saying it can't do it-presumably because the file and dimension size at 96ppi is incompatible with 127k?



thoughts?

Re: Resizing and stuff


First change them all to the pip you want and then save them all for web. The file size is dependant on the quality setting you select in the save for web dialog.

Luckily, in the bottom left corner from memory it will tell you the file size as you adjust the quality slider

The other way which may be easier is to use the export dialog in Lightroom where you can set the ppi and file size
independently

thanks Ian- Ps export for web doesn't work for reasons stated

Tried LR and problem is it couldn't do it with some files and gave the error message I mention above

Before going to save for web, resize them in the image size dialog box to reduce the size

Re: Resizing and stuff


I thought of that but it means I Ive got to do each one individually as they range from 200pix to thousands

Re: Resizing and stuff


Can you show me a screen shot of the error you get in LR as this would be very easy to do
