It would be nice if some basic functionality in this direction were rolled into Preview...lol, that could be the back-end of your Automator task. It seems like Preview is already half-way there -- it can deal with most of the formats, and do conversions. Now it just needs sizing capabilities. Preferably with a sub-pixel rendering type of option that produces smooth scaled down images, as well as a standard raw scale.Doctor Q said:
Thanks alot for this post - I always needed to know how to do this and it really helped. Cheers!!If you drag the image into iPhoto, you can then click on it in the gallery, choose export, and then choose the "scale no larger than..." option to do this. Then choose the format from the pull-down (if you leave it at "original," then it will re-export in the old file format, e.g. jpg if the original was jpg).
This thread is quite old (2005) and if you're running Leopard, you can now do it in Preview.
