image size: set default setting in dialog box to percent

Jul 30, 2009 8:52 AM

I usualy change my images by percent, so I would like the dialogbox to display percent as default, instead of pixels or inches.

Now every time I open an image from Indesign and want to change the size in %, I have to set pixel to percent.

I've looked around but nowhere I can find a way to change the default setting.

Any suggestions?SCHERM 18.jpg

    the image size defaults to what ever prefs is set to under Units and rulers. so if you want percent set percent in units and rulers.

    You could try making an action that opens the Image size dialog and changes the units to %.

    I too have searched (to no avail) for an answer to this question. I resize hundreds of images with this dialog box, but I must change the default from pixels to percent every time. Surely there is a way to change this default?

    If it’s really such an annoyance to You, You might want to consider using a Script.

    Recreating the whole Image Size-dialog window would probably be a bit cumbersome, but if You really only want to resize with percents a much simpler dialog (possibly with only one entry-field) might suffice.

    What You or I assume »must be simple« is not necessarily so programming-wise …

     

    Why would a Script not be a »real working option«?

    Well, fortunately I don’t have to share my station and rarely have to work on someone else’s, but I do have a USB-stick with my Presets, Scripts, Configurator Panels, etc. nonetheless, because I don’t want to lose any of that stuff in any freak hard disc-mishaps.

     

    Anyway, when trying to perform some tasks efficiently with Photoshop it seems difficult to me to avoid Scripts … but I guess opinions differ on that matter.

    Not to worry, I do have the Presets backed up on a hard-drive, too.
