Resizing images without export

Hi all,
I would like to create a folder that contains re-sized versions of my master images. The folder will be photos that I am posting to my web site and I want to be able to control their size and keep this resized image in my aperture library. I am uploading them through the site host's uploader (squarespace) using finder, not exporting through aperture. Is there a way to create duplicate,resized versions of the images without exporting and re-importing the photos?
I know that aperture isn't photo editing software, but i expected that it would be able to do basic things (mirror, resize, etc) and am constantly disappointed. I could round-trip to photoshop, but I hope there's an easier solution.
Thanks,
John

First question - why do you need the JPEGs? If it's to upload them to a site via FTP there are export plug-ins to do this directly from within Aperture.
Using the media browser isn't going to help you at all because that will be accessing Previews in Adobe98 profile - not something you should be putting up on a website.
I also came across this problem when I wanted to convert a large number of raw files to jpegs and keep the new jpegs in my library. At the time I was running low on disk space and didn't need the raws anymore, but had to go through the process of exporting and re-importing for a bunch of projects.
Sorry, but that's a bit too alien an idea for me - I never threw away negatives back when I was using film, why would you throw away RAW files now?
Another pet peeve I have is that there is no status indicator when exporting (2 minutes left, 25% done, etc....anything besides a beachball), so I don't know how long the export will take, and on my 2006 macbook it sometimes takes a while.
At the bottom of the Browser pane on the left you will see a progress 'swirl' when exporting, importing or generating Previews. Click on it to bring up the activity window with progress bars for all current actions. You can also access it through Window>Show Activity.

  • Help - Resizing images WITHOUT awt or graphics2D

    Hi all.
    I have a JSP application running on a shared Tomcat hosting.
    My users can send images to the site.
    I cannot find a way to resize an image without using AWT or graphics.
    (I also cannot switch to headless mode, the JVM is not mine to control)
    I tried using ImageIO but crashed because there is no X11 graphics on the server.
    I tried using the PJA toolkit, but I could not find a way to RESIZE an image using PJA.
    Help ! This is driving me mad.
    Thanks !

    Jeff,
    The printing service should only need to know the size at which you want it printed. At that point they can adjust the PPI to a number that will shrink the print size, but not destroy any pixels.
    You can adjust the DPI as you Export if you wish, but that should not be necessary. To change the DPI, choose JPEG Original, say, and click on Edit and you can change the DPI to a higher number, and export.
    If you export any photo, open it in Preview, click on Tools and choose Adjust size then you can see the impact of changing the Resolution on inches/or metric measure, which is what the printer can do. In Adjust Size be sure to Deselect the option to Resample -- the latter would otherwise remove pixels and result in a lower resolution.

  • Resizing images without pixelation

    Hi everyone
    This is a topic that everyone seems to be wondering about but
    nobody has the answer. If you look at a site like
    www.manipulator.com , the screen can be resized and the images will
    increase along with it (until a certain point of course) but at no
    point do the images pixelate? Where as my images do not matter how
    good the quality or picture format.
    If anybody has any ideas how this is done I would be
    greatful!
    Thanks

  • Resize image during export from Imovie 11 to anamorphic.   It only crops.

    Hi:
    I shoot with a hacked panasonic gh13 and the hack allows it to shoot anamorphic hd video without a special lens.  When the footage comes out of the camera it has that stretched look to it.    It should be very simple to get to true anamorphic dimensions with the custom image size options in Quicktime and Mpeg.   I should be able to go to Share>Export using Quicktime>Options>  then set to 1920 by 810.   The stretched image should look normal after export but it only crops it no matter what option or if it is Mpeg or Quicktime.  I would appreciate any direction I could get with this.   It should be pretty simple.
    Thanks

    I'm not sure what 'anamorphic HD' is?
    You can have anamorphic SD; which stretches 4:3 SD video to 16:9.
    But HD is not anamorphic.
    There are odd 1440x1080 sizes, but these are not generally described as "anamorphic HD".
    I can't say I have heard of 1920 by 810 as a standard size.
    iMovie Mac is really only for editing standard frame sizes, and so your video files are probably confusing it.
    I would suggest you move to a dimension open editor like FCP7.
    Or shoot at a standard frame size.

  • How to create a master catalog of edited images without exporting from client catalog (in DNG or JPEG).

    I create a LR catalog for each client which works great as I have many repeat clients and can easily access all of their images. However, I want to have a master studio catalog that includes the edited images from all of the
    jobs.  When I have imported these images into the master, the lightroom adjustments are lost. How can I import import the edited images showing LR adjustments?

    I can answer your question literally, exactly what you have asked.
    Or I could suggest something else, more elegant, which may address your real needs better.
    Let me do the first:
    Use the command "export as catalog" for the new delta of the current job of that repeat client. For the first job you do not need this, as the total catalog is just about the portion you want to have in your master catalog.
    Then open your master catalog and use the command "import from another catalog", select this exported portion, and you are done. But caveat: now the same image file is referenced by 2 catalogs, which may lead to,problems, e.g. If you move the image within Lightroom.
    Alternative suggestion: just work with 1 master catalog and use a collection set per each of your clients, one collection per job underneath. If appropriate, create more collections in that client's set, e.g. only for images he/she bought actually.
    So far I have not understood what an individual catalog per client gives you, what a collection (set) would not?

  • Resizing image without cropping

    I am trying to add a value to the width in InDesign in order to resize an image. What's happening is that it is resizing the image by cropping it. I don't want the image cropped; I just want it reduced proportionately. What should I do?

    Answered in your other thread.

  • Mail is resizing images without my permission!!!

    I've been trying to send a TIFF file to a printer for a business card. They said my image was all fuzzy, so I checked my Sent folder, and sure enough, it was fuzzy. I assumed it happened again. So I created a new TIFF for them, attached it to an email, then opened the attachment - looked great full screen, very sharp. The printer made a proof for me - fuzzy proof, crap image. So I checked my Sent mail, and sure enough what was sent was not what I attached and viewed before Sending.
    Mail is dumbing down my attachments. How do I stop this?

    At the bottom of the new message window is the Image Size set to Original?
    If all else fails, you could put the tiff into a .zip and send it that way.

  • RESIZING GIF IMAGES WITHOUT LOSING ANIMATION

    Is it possible to resize a Gif image without losing animation?  I tried but unfortunately lost the animation. I use CS3 Extended.  Thanks

    No, I don't think so. for that, you'd probably have to import your animation using the Video to Layers option, resize, then rebuild the animation and export it.

  • How to proper resize images and videos at runtime without losing quality?

    Hi guys. I need a bit of help here.
    I've built a flash site in which i want to resize a movie to the stage. I do it by keeping the proportion, thus i only resize the width and then i resize the height acordingly to the new width but keeping the proportion.
    The problem is that my film still looks "pixeled".
    I found a website on which the stage resizes dinamically with the movie and the background images without either of them losing quality. Till now i knew that resizing images or videos in flash at authoring or runtime produces pixeled results.
    This is the website: http://kampanjeweb.apt.no/jotun/romforrom/. Can someone tell me how do they do it without losing quality? just make the browser windowed and resize the margins to see the effect.
    Thanks.

    Hello, Venian.
    About the video, you could try setting the flash.media.Video's smoothing property to TRUE. This should keep a quality, but you can do nothing if the video has a poor quality. You need a great video.
    About the images, you you need to redraw the image each time you resize it. To achieve it, use a combination of Bitmap, BitmapData and Matrix classes. Any doubt, just call again. Here is a simple example:
    var scale:Number = .5;
    var highQualitySourceImage:Bitmap = ...your image...;
    var scaleMatrix:Matrix = new Matrix();
         scaleMatrix.scale(scale, scale);
    var bitmapData:BitmapData = new BitmapData( scale*highQualitySourceImage.width, scale*highQualitySourceImage.height);
         bitmapData.draw(highQualitySourceImage, scaleMatrix);
    var finalBitmap:Bitmap = new Bitmap(bitmapData);
    addChild( finalBitmap );
    Cheers,

  • Placing images without resize?

    When I put some images into a psd via placement instead of copy/paste, the images are resized, often by a lot. It appears that different resolutions is the reason.
    Image sizes are retained in copy/paste, but placement is faster, so I'm wondering if it's possible to retain image sizes via placement without tweaking the resolutions.
    Disabling "Resize Image During Place" doesn't help. Neither does changing the W and H values to 100% during placement, as it appears that the images were already resized so that 100% of the placed images are still way off of the original image sizes.
    Thanks!

    As Wade said, I don't think this is any bug. sounds mor like you are using some sort of hyper-sensitive input device (or misconfigured one) that causes accidental selection and move of existing work.

  • How can I resize an image without losing resolution or using the crop tool? I am using Photoshop Elements 13 on a PC.

    How can I resize an image without losing resolution or using the crop tool? I am using Photoshop Elements 13 on a PC.

    Hi Peru Bob,
    I've tried two images, the results were:
    Image 1
    Jpg, original file size 923KB, dimensions 848px x 279px.
    After resizing to 848px x 180px with 72dpi, the file size decreased to 164KB.
    Image 2
    Jpg, original file size 809KB, dimensions 1200px x 1800px.
    After resizing to 668px x 722px with 72dpi, the file size decreased to 307KB.
    So, there seems to be a fair file size loss - is this to be expected?

  • Resize A Image Without Losing Quality

    I have been reading about how to best resize image in PS CS4/CS5.  I've read that you should increase the size of a image in increments and I’ve also read that you should resize using the bicubic smoother setting in PS.
    The image that I would like to resize is 5W x 7H and resolution of 150. I would like to print this image at 30W x 40H on a HP Designjet 5500ps.
    Any recommendation on how I should go about resizing the image without losing quality?

    No matter which method you used, scaling up a photo 5 times is going to look very good.
    There are some software that purports to scale up an image without blurry edges. Not sure how well they work.
    If you can obtain the original image and rescan it at a higher resolution that would work better.
    Or, if the photo can be easily recreated as a vector drawing, then do that with illustrator and print it out large.
    Or if you or someone you know is a great artist, then scale up the photo in photoshop (which would become blurry), then hand correct the edges to make them sharp. This requires drawing ability.

  • Can I duplicate a RAW image as a JEPG without exporting then importing?

    I would like to duplicate a RAW image as a JPEG. Is this possible to accomplish within the Aperture library without  exporting then importing?

    No, it is not.
    "RAW" describes a family of proprietary sensor-data file formats.  If you want a JPG file, you must create it.  "Export", in Aperture, means "Make me a file of this Image according to these settings in this Image Export Preset".  You make JPG files by exporting Images and selecting JPG (and other settings) in the Image Export Preset.
    If you supply some more information on what you are trying to do, we might be able to help you.  You question comes up often from users trying to do something larger, but I can't tell what from the information you've given.

  • Setting for whether to resize images or not in exportContext.propertyTable?

    I have a plugin that creates multiple renditions of various sizes.  For the sizes I require, the image sizes are set with the two properties LR_size_resizeType and LR_size_maxHeight.
    The issue I am facing is that the rendering process only reduces the sizes if the "Resize to Fit" checkbox is checked in Export settings.  If left unchecked, all renditions are set at the same size of the original image.  I've attempted to find out which property this checkbox may effect, but don't see any difference in the keys/values of exportContext.propertyTable between having the checkbox set or not set.
    I hope somebody can help advise on the following:
    * Is there a property I can set to force LR to resize renditions, whether in exportContext.propertyTable or elsewhere? 
    * If not, is there a property in my plugin's preset values that can set this checkbox to 'on' when the plugin is installed?
    * Any other approaches to force LR to resize renderings without having the user check the 'Resize to Fit' checkbox?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Thanks for the advice Rob.  The magic setting seems to be LR_size_doConstrain.  When set to true, the images are now resizing correctly, whether Resize to Fit is checked or not.

  • Disc image file exported from Encore CS4 won't work

    Hello,
    I have a problem concerning the export of a disc image file in Encore CS4. I recently upgraded to CS4 and wanted to continue my project which I started editing with CS3. While working with CS3 I already did image files from this project for burning and testing the DVD. Back then it worked with no problems.
    However, since using the CS4 version Encore does the image without any problem, but I can't use the image file in any way afterwards. I mounted it with Daemon Tools as I did before, but the DVD won't play in any software DVD player I have installed (Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, Nero Showtime) nor can I access the file structure over a file manager. Nevertheless NeroInfoTool and ImgBurn say there is a DVD in the virtual drive. Then I exported the DVD project into a folder and now I can see the files in the file manger but again no player will play it.
    Has anyone experienced this before and is able to help? It would be very appreciated since I don't want to downgrade back to CS3 :-)
    It's Encore CS4, Version 4.0.1.048 on a 2,8 GHz HT CPU, 2 GB RAM, Nvidia Geforce 6800 UT, lots of HDD space, XP + SP3.
    Thank you,
    Chris...

    Hey,
    thank you both. As I said no player accepts the project exported to a folder. It doesn't matter if I point the player to the video_ts.ifo or just the folder - it won't play. As a consequence I re-installed Encore CS3 in which exporting worked fine and guess what - the exported image and folder output doesn't work either. Since it worked before in CS3 it comes down to the conclusion that either I did some editing to the project that screwed the project or Encore CS4 did. Checking for mistakes in the project and previewing in inside CS4 everything seems fine. So might it be CS4 that ****** up the project file??? I mean it's full of strange bugs so it could easily be that. I even updated my Daemon Tools yesterday and it won't make a difference.
    Or could it be something else I haven't considered yet? Any ideas? I just don't want to build the whole project again which might not even work if it's some other error. This is a desperate call for help
    Thanks,
    Chris...
