There is another question similar to this at this link:
So this is just a duplicate so you need to decide whether to keep this or not. We should avoid duplications and confusions with such duplications.
Thanks, but this is exactly what I am doing.
I'm starting with an image that is 4272x2848. I'm using 72dpi because I am
using it in a video (premier elements 10). The other images that are being
resized are approx this size, too. Then, I am using Process Multiple Files
to resize them to 1000x750. Instead of having the green bar that starts
the process of resizing normally, it has a green bar that says "Writing
Jpeg Image" and then "Flatten Image", etc. Then, I get an image that is
30,000x30,000. I have no idea why it's converting these picsto such huge
files, especially when I am telling it to shrink them down.
If I go into IMAGE then RESIZE, I can do each picture one by one without an
issue. Obviously, this isn't a problem if I only have a few pictures, but
a project with 100 pictures would take a while to resize without PROCESS
Any other ideas on what might be happening? I feel like there is
something checked tat I don't know about. Again, I've resized hundreds of
pics for many projects and I have never had this happen. Seems like
something got turned on that should be off.......????
I can't explain why you're getting those results. I tested PSE10's Process Multiple Files on 73 assorted images and they all came out to 1000px x 750px at 72ppi with these settings:
As usual, when PSE starts acting goofy, the first thing to try is resetting the Preferences: Hold down your Ctrl+Alt+Shift keys when starting the Editor to get the prompt asking if you want to delete the Preferences. Answer "Yes" and they will be re-built. You may have to minimize any open windows to see that prompt.
