I'm trying to setup a batch process that will either resize a landscape picture to 800x533 or a portrait to 533x800.  Can this be done in an automated batch process?

ok, that one basically does what I already know.  The problem is.... when the picture is a landscape I want the picture size to be 800x533 and when it is a portrait to be 533x800.  if I do those steps the width will always be 800 which won't be right for the portrait pictures.

I'm not a pro with this department -just throwin ideas. What about using Microsoft Picture manager as a second batch process. Doesn't it orient automaticallly?

Never used MS Picture Manager.   but I just checked it and it looks like it would do the same thing.

You may be able to do that with pic manager if you use the print wizard.. select the orientations then print as PDF
Hope that helps

Hi Zantis,

I had the same problem as yours and I manage to solve it with the same technique by interloperKO.

What i did is i separate all landscape and portrait images in one folder then apply the process on each folder separately.

One thing that you might consider in resizing batch images is the aspect ratio. If your image has different aspect ratio than 800x533, the resulting image may not what you expected. Your image will be cropped or stretched depending on your aspect ratio setting you specified on the batch setting.

I suggest that you only specify width or height and make the auto resize on(aspect ratio lock/constrain proportion). this will keep your image proportion.

best of luck.

that's what I ended up doing is separating them into two different  folders.  And things went smoothly.  I was hoping that there might be away to avoid this but since nobody seems to know if that can be done I guess that is the answer
