OK here is what I'd like to do:
From my original files (1024*768), create a batch script that will resize them to fit my web photo-album (500*375 max 35-40k, this is important). Since my web album is thumbnailed, I need another copy of my images in 100*75 (around 2k max) resolution.
The 500*375 images should keep the original file names while the 100*75 ones should have "_thumb" after the filename, just before the file extension. This is for better server-side processing.
It is my understanding that I need to work with the Save for Web option since getting a 35k filesize with a 500*375 photo is almost impossible with the regular save as dialog box. Even if it is doable, it's just impossible to automate a script using the regular Save As windo (to my knowledge), we never know which quality setting (0-8) will be required for a given filesize. Also, when I work with the Save for Web option, I need to check the : Override Action "Save As" Commands so the script works properly. How can I rename my thumbnail images (100*75) having checked that option, the file naming section is obviously not working anymore ???
Please help !
