Just simple advice

Today I noticed something. Maybe is something everybody already knows (except me:-)

It’s about resizing te images.

The only thing I did until today was cropping the images to 110×80. But not always 110×80 px.

My pics also were 220x160px and 440×320 etc etc

Today a noticed that when you upload a (for example) 440×320, and the PoF system resizes the image, the quality is much lower then when you resize the image to 110×80 yourself and then upload it.

The PoF resizer isn’t even close to photoshop.

Again..maybe it’s something everybody already knew about, but it was new to me.

Haha ya, don’t let any auto resizer resize your pics. I always resize in photoshop.

I used fotosizer and it seems to work well for me. If I have any issue I’ll be sure to post them on the forum. I use PS as well but it takes forever to resize a batch of images sometimes.

I drag&drop all images into photoshop, resizing/moving to fit the frame as each is placed. Then rasterize all layers, delete the background layer, go from the top down and use the sharpen filter once (ctrl+f from then on), scribble colour dodge tool on image to brighten parts (the zeno-wow-shine factor), hide layer -> move to next, repeat (ctrl+f, colour dodge like a 3 year old, hide layer). Then when done File -> Scripts -> Export layers to files. Then put those somewhere and use batch/automate to do any borders.

Thanks, you just cut my photoshop image processing time in half!

Where is this tool though? I’ve been looking for 20 minutes and can’t find it, haha. I know it’s probably right in front of me

I’m not sure if anyone is using this, but Photoshop has the ability to batch process anything you want to do. You can record an action on an image once and apply to every single file in a folder. All you have to do is record the action through "Actions" (accessible through the Window dropdown). Afterwards, use File>Automate>Batch to apply to a ton of files. I use this function to batch resize images and batch insert them into a pre-made frame (for them 310x110s). The batch processing will also save the new files as a serial number that you can designate the start number of. I personally have a library of images that all have unique codes (so I can track them across the entire platform and analyze performance).

Again, not sure if most are already doing this, but hope that helps!
