Larger Images in a "Web Photo Gallery"

The automate web photo gallery is one of the best tools I've seen in a while.

Only problem is that the biggest I can make the images is 450 pixels wide.

That's small.

Is there any way to use this tool to make bigger pics?

    Hi Weller,

    You could use a little trick. You'll need to make backups of your images. Run the Web Photo Gallery. After that's done, open a test photo from your original set and create an Action to resize it to the desired width. After your action has been recorder, use the Automate>Batch feature to run your Action on the folder containing the original images and saving them to the folder that contains the Photo Gallery images so that it replaces the ones that are 450 pixels wide. It should work like a charm.

    Good Vibes!

    Sounds like it should work to me.

    Not to future viewers.  This worked but I also had to exted the table that holds the pics from 500 pixels wide to 650.

    Now I have 600x450 pics in a 500x650 frame so it looks perfect.

    Thanks again...

    Hi Weller,

    Yep, I was thinking that you may need to adjust the size of the container in the generated HTML as well. Glad it worked.

    Thanks and Good Vibes!
