    Add white canvas to square images based on largest dimension - script?

    james.barber

      Hi,

       

      I have a bunch of images already on white backgrounds in sizes such as;

       

      1824 x 3804

      1891 x 5246

      1747 x 5089

       

      etc.. basically a lot of different random image sizes..

       

      I need to add white canvas to these images to square them based on their largest dimension.

       

      For the third example above I can open the image in Fireworks and Modify -> Canvas -> Canvas Size then change the 1747 width to 5089, then I can set Modify -> Canvas -> Canvas Color to 'White'.

       

      This achieves how I want the image to look, but with the different sizes of images I can't just save and batch these commands on them all.

       

      How could I do this via batch process please..?

       

      Is there a script I could create and is this difficult to do?

       

      I tried doing a couple of commands then pasting them onto the clipboard from history, but coding was never really my strong point!

       

      Thanks very much in advance!
