Batch exporting pixel dimensions

i want to export pixel dimensions from many images to text files in a batch process. the information can be exported as a metadata template from file info (camera data 2), but i have been unable to record the necessary actions. when i try to record the actions, nothing is recorded other than opening and closing the file. ideas?

That sounds like a script may be better suited for that task.
Have you tried posting over on the photoshop scripting forum?

  • Where is it possible to batch process the size of images?--I am able to change pixel dimensions in image processor but not image size in inches.

    Hi- I need to batch process images for video project.  I am able to change the pixel dimensions in the image processor but don't seem to have the option to change image size in inches.  Please advise!  Thanks

    You don't need inches for video (or screen viewing in general). It all goes by pixel count. Inches is for print, nothing else.
    But to answer the question, you can run actions in the Image Processor, and this is where you set size in inches. Just bring up Image Size, uncheck "resample image", and specify size. You'll notice resolution changes to reflect the fact that the existing image pixels are now redistributed over the new print size.
    But again, screen doesn't care about size or resolution. It only counts pixels.

  • When I export photos from Aperture, the pixel dimensions are halved thus losing data.  I have set the export preferences to export at original size, to no avail.  This happens even if I just drag to the desktop and then back, or if I export into my iphoto

    When I export photos from Aperture to desktop or iphoto I lose pixels.  The pixel dimensions are halved, despite setting the export preference to export at original size.  Anyone know why or how to correct this?

    Dragging an Image from Aperture exports the Preview.  Preview parameters are set on the Previews tab of Aperture preferences.
    Are you seeing the same results when you export using one of the export commands?
    Is so, confirm that the settings in the selected Image Export Preset ("Aperture➞Presets➞Image Export") truly represent those in the Image Export Preset's name.

  • Is there any way to batch change resolution, but not pixel dimensions?

    I was changing the resolution of my digital photos from 180 to 300 ppi individually as I edited them, but sometimes I would forget. Since I need the higher resolution for printing, I decided to automate that step by using PSE's "Process Multiple Files" feature. I noted that the Resolution selection was grayed out until I checkmarked "Resize Images." Since I didn't want to change the number of pixels, I left those fields blank.
    When I started the automated processing I noticed it was terribly slow, so I cancelled it and looked at the resulting files. They had more than doubled in file size because PSE was nearly doubling the Pixel Dimensions! I don't want to try a work-around by "resizing" to the current pixel dimensions, because the processing still takes about 45 seconds per file, and if I've cropped the photos, the pixel dimensions vary. Is there an automated way to change only the resolution in PSE . . . quickly?
    Also, I really wanted to double the resolution from 180 ppi to 360 ppi, but PSE limits my choices to either 600 or 300 or less. I've read about Scripts, but I don't think PSE supports them. I have version 6.
    Thanks for some help.

    Thanks for your input, and you may be right, but I'm not sure. I'm still trying to figure this out. I know it's the same photo on my monitor, but I keep reading that print resolution (ppi) is different from pixel resolution (i.e. 2000x3000.) This is my situation-- I'm sending the photos to a publisher for printing in a book. The publisher did not specify a size in inches--in fact I think the photos will be different sizes when printed on the page. They told me to send the photos in at 1600x1200 pixels. I've heard that 300 ppi is the standard resolution for publishing, so to get decent quality printing of my photos I thought I should increase the resolution from 180 to 300. But thinking about the different sizes, it seems that the resolution (ppi) will change depending on the size the photo is actually printed. At 300 ppi, a 1600x1200 photo will be printed at size 5.333" X 4". If a photo is printed full bleed on the cover of the book that is 8" x 10.667", then it will be 150 ppi. So, I guess you are right that I don't need to worry about the ppi resolution for the book photos.
    Now, let me figure about what I need to print my own 4x6 photos. My digital camera was set to 16x9 jpg, so my workflow is to make PNG copies to work with and after editing, save them in the 16x9 format before cropping at 1600x1200 pixels, then sharpening before doing Save As jpg in Book folder. I was thinking I needed to change the resolution to 300 ppi when saving in the 16x9 format so if I want to later make 4x6 prints, I'll have good quality prints. But you have made me think a little harder--what I do is choose the 4x6 crop tool which takes care of whatever ppi resolution is needed for that size print. Oh good, you have saved me extra work. Thanks!
    (BTW, I choose the 16x9 format because I was planning to use the photos in a widescreen slideshow, but my husband wanted something he could hold in his hand--hence, the book . . . and a lot of cropping!)

  • Pixel dimensions for still images

    Hello all,
    I have just ran into a problem that seems to be a sizing problem with Final Cut Express HD. I used to crop my still pics to 1366 px - 768 px (for landscape) and then import them to FCE and export as a quicktime movie. When I brought the quicktime movie into iDVD and created the DVD it seemed to play great on my 46" Samsung tv -- full screen.
    I just recently bought a Samsung 60" and when I create the same type of movies, I am getting a huge black border around the whole image (not just top and bottom but sides too). I tried creating a new movie and made all my still images 1920px x 1080 px, and it still comes out the same way.
    I can stretch my tv so that they go full screen, but I think there should be a way to create the movie without having to stretch it....just have the tv set for 16:9, and I feel that it should work.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks.

    When you create a DVD, no matter what the pixel dimensions of your original material, it become 720x480 Standard Definition. This is what a DVD is. If you are creating a DVD that has material that is 16x9, then it creates a DVD that is 720x480 but plays back anamorphic, stretching to create the 16x9 screen.
    If you play one of your older DVDs that played correctly on your previous TV, does it play correctly or does it also exhibit the black bars?
    If it plays correctly then something has changed in the way you are creating your project in FCE.and encoding and burning the DVD.
    If the older DVDs also exhibit the same playback problem, then I believe there is a menu setting on your new TV that will tell it how to display Standard Definition material from your DVD player, and you need to adjust that. (There are also settings in the set-top DVD player that tells it what kind of signal to send based on the what kind of display it is hooked up to.)

  • Sort by file size and/or pixel dimensions

    I am constantly frustrated by the lack of ability to sort by file size or pixel dimension. I have many versions of the same images, and often want to find the biggest one, or one of a certain size, and it's very time consuming to have to scan all the numbers in the metadata instead of being able to sort. Please add this.

    DevMeta will allow you to filter/collect by width and height dimensions.
    PixelCountMetadata will allow you to filter/collect by total number of pixels (width x height).
    Now that I'm thinking about it, I should probably have just added the pixelcount metadata to DevMeta, but I didnt..., yet...
    PS - I dont use PixelCountMetadata, since I only have originals in Lightroom. All resized copies are kept outside of Lightroom. Consider TreeSync if you regularly keep variously sized copies at the ready for various purposes... And, lastly, ExportManager will help you keep all your trees up2date, if you have more than one.
    I then use ACDSee to find photos in the exported copies or run slideshows, or serve on the house net, or email...

  • Exported file dimensions too small

    I can not figure out what is happening at export to give me such small files. I have searched and searched online and read all I can but I am still without answers. Any help you may be able to provide me with I will be so appreciative for.
    This is my work scenario. I shoot on Cannon 50D in raw (15 mp). Upload the images to computer and import to Lightroom. I make my adjustmenst in Lightroom and many images I pull from Lightroom into Photoshop CS5 and do additional artistic touches there. I save from Photoshop so that it re-opens it back in Lightroom with my Photoshop adjustments. After I have done this with all of my images I then export the images my clients select for their purchased disc. This where I am concerned...
    What I know had once started out as large raw files are quite small by the dimension size, average approximate dimensions are 4750x3170. File settings are set to quality 100 and under Image Sizing I do not have 'resize to fit' checked. On occasion I have used the crop feature in Lightroom but not on many images and all of my images are small not just certain ones.
    I am fairly new to Lightroom but nervous about using it right now. I am actually postponing editing a new session until I can get some clear answers or I may just have to tackle the whole session in Photoshop like I used to because I will at least know that file sizes will not decrease in size.
    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    When I do re-open the file that has been edited and exported in Photoshop I show a Document size of 9.083x13.627 with res at 300. My pixel dimension is 31.9M.
    How can I print a 16x24 or 24x36 etc with a file sized like this?
    The required resolution for a specific print size depends primarily on the "viewing distance." See this article by Jeff Schewe:
    If your client is doing a large poster that will be viewed from two feet or more then 140 dpi should be fine. The 50D's 4752 x 3168 "uncropped" resolution equates to 34" x 22.6" at 140 dpi, so the maximum standard print size is 30" x 20." That said I've made some great looking 24" x 16" enlargements with a Canon 300D (3,027 x 2,048), which are only 126 dpi. It really depends on the detail in the picture and the target paper type. Prints on canvas material can only resolve about 150 dpi maximum and there is little benefit using higher resolution. Glossy paper provides the highest image resolution capability (300 dpi+), but will only look sharper when viewed at shorter distances (i.e. less than two feet). For smaller handheld prints (i.e. 4" x 6", 5" x 7") 300 dpi or higher will give you the best results.

    Why are my files now showing 9x13 for the size?
    In PS go to the toolbar Image> Image Size. PS calculates the image dimensions based on the 'Resolution' box setting (i.e. 300 dpi). If you want to see the picture dimensions at a different resolution enter that number (i.e. 140 dpi) in the 'Resolution box.

  • How to Batch Export Wide Still images

    I'm currently working on a project that uses Widescreen. I have no problems exporting the movie project to DVDstudio pro file, but when I try to Batch Export the Still Clips I took, it makes it into 4:3 size, rather than 16:9. Because of this, pictures look squished. How would I fix this since I didn't see any options in Batch Export for wide.
    I'm using Final Cut Pro 5.0.4

    As mentioned above, that is a possibility. You haven't said how you plan to use them. If quality is paramount I would advise against doing a "destructive" stretch on them unless you're moving them to a final definitive size as in web graphics. There's little enough resolution in SD video to start with.
    If you're using them in the print world they will fare much better if they are stretched within the production app. Just ignore the aspect ratio and tell it they're an inch by 9/16ths, or 16x9 cm, or whatever system you're working with.
    If you dig around in Photoshop, they have a system to identify and deal with with NTSC tall pixels, perhaps they have one for anamorphic as well. More confusing than helpful to me.

  • Exporting File Dimensions to File

    I have approximately 65,000 images for which I need to catalogue filenames and pixel dimensions into an Excel spreadsheet. I am using Bridge CS5, and I can see a field containing pixel dimensions, but I can't seem to find a script that will export this field into a file with the associated filenames. There are some useful scripts that will export IPTC and EXIF metadata, but I really just need to compile the filenames and pixel dimensions.
    If you know of any scripts or free software solutions it would be greatly appreciated.

    The Barred Rock script should do that.. CSV

  • Export all dimension using a report scripts

    Does anybody has an idea on how to Export the dimensions from Essbase through a report script? Because i will use this to load the dimensions in odi.
    any idea is highly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    If you look at my blog, I talk about the <preview function. it brings back them members with zeros as the values. It's much quicker than actually returning the data.
    There is a problem in general with your premise of using a report script to do this. For ODI, you will want the dimensions in a parent child format. The report script will not do that for you. I would suggest you look at the outline extractor housed on applied olap's web site. it's free and you can run it in a batch mode.
    I think you should also look at John Goodwin's blog he has a series of articles on ODI. you whould be able to extract the dimensionality from a cube and load it into another cube directly from ODI

  • Pixel dimensions / file size

    I am trying to publish a photo to a website with specific limits for pictures. How can I adjust pixel dimensions and file size using iphoto?

    Hi wrigjef: Try this: iPhoto open, select the picture(s) you wish to work with, from the "File" menu, select Export. The resultant dialog box will give you several options for pixel dimension, file size etc. After files have been saved to the specified location they can be then up-loaded to the website.
    Hope this helps

  • Cannot crop to an exact pixel dimensions

    I am having a hard time cropping to an exact pixel dimensions upon export.  For my work, I need to crop to exactly 2166X1600, with a tolerance of no more than one pixel off of those dimensions, i.e. 2166X1599. 
    I set crop tool to 2166X1600 and crop all of my images.  On the export I constrain to largest dimension of 2166 in both horizontal and vertical directions. Results vary widely from right on 2166X1600 to several pixels off on the short side.  Sometimes more than 1600, and sometimes less.  Any thoughts as to why these constraints do not work exactly?  Some sets of images I have to redo as many as 25% of a gallery of 200-300 images.  Any thoughts?  Thanks!

    See, I don't need to crop the original image to 2166X1600.  I need a finished image at 2166X1600.  Meaning, in theory I should be able to crop an image to 1:1.35375 ratio, which is 2166X1600, and export to constrain to 2166 on the longest side.  When it's constrained to 2166, the short side should always be 1600.   
    Here's where the problem is...  When you set the crop window to 2166X1600, you expect that when you size your crop on your image that the only options for the boundary are multiples of 2166X1600.  In reality, the crop visual boundaries are approximate.  Here's an example...
    I have an image that I have cropped to a finished size of 3185X2350.  Which is based upon a 2166X1600 crop.  When I export it, I need the 3185 to become 2166.  So the long side is constrained to 2166, and it is reduced by a factor of 1.47.  3185/2166=1.47  If I reduce the short side, 2350, by that same factor of 1.47 you end up with a short side of 1598.  Which is why I have a problem.
    My invalid assumption was that when you set specific pixel dimensions in the crop tool, that only those values would be shown in the crop tool's bounding box.  Photoshop can do it...

  • Custom cropping using pixel dimension

    The banner image module for my website requires images cropped to 940 x 400 pixels. When I use the Custom cropping function in PSE 12 (on a Mac OSX 10.9.2), it only shows a cm dimension. Can I do a custom crop using a pixel dimension?

    You should just be able to type 940 px and 400 px in the width and height fields
    Another way is to use the Rectangular Marquee Tool and use Aspect>Fixed Size then enter 940 px X 400 px

  • How do you find the pixel dimensions of a photo to embed in Illustrator CC?

    We recently upgraded our software from CS3 to CC. I'm having trouble determining the pixel dimensions of the photo I want to embed in Illustrator. In our old work flow, we simply clicked on the object in Illustrator, and then opened a new document in Photoshop, and it would retain the dimensions at our document size in Illustrator. It was then a simple matter to paste the photo into the box, position and crop and save as a PSD file and then place in Illustrator. That does not work any more in Creative Cloud. The object downsizes to 72 DPI while retaining the resolution setting. We need to keep our Illustrator files to the minimum, so embedding larger than needed files is not possible.
    I've researched a bit and I see others with similar problems, but I haven't seen a workaround or a way to determine the pixel size. Document info in Illustrator gives the 72 dpi pixel settings, even though the document is set to reproduce at 200 dpi.
    This is something that used to be so simple I didn't think much of upgrading. Now my workflow is horrendously long. I have to rasterize the entire graphic and then crop what is the inset photo. If there is a simpler way, please tell me. All the literature is backwards, about placing an already sized PS image into Illustrator. I need the other way 'round.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I think I have a workaround: Make sure the clipboard settings are on 72 by cutting and pasting a 72 dpi file in PS, as it seems Illustrator images are seen that way, no matter what the output resolution is. Click on Photoshop and start a new document. It will retain the proportions of the Illustrator image in 72 dpi. Then open image size and make sure the resample box is checked. Change the resolution to the desired, in my case 200.. Then place and crop your photo, and save the PSD file. Open Illustrator and place the PSD file. This works for me.

  • How do i change the size of a clip using batch export?

    hi, when i try and do a batch export to change my clips from a DV PAL to PhotoJpeg 320*240 sized clips the "options" button is greyed out. so all i have as export settings are the QT presets in a pulldown list. is there any way i can create my own setting? (and the also save that?)

    what i'm seeing is that
    a) selecting all files in Media Man. gives me the option to size and set codecs but not the audio off.
    b) selecting all files in Batch Export allows me to pick a format (QT, aiff etc) choose a preset (photoJpeg included) select whether to include audio and video or both but not set the size or customize the QT settings
    c) selecting all clips then "file>export>using QT conversion" gives me all options, but seem to grab only the first clip.
