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!
This is definitely a task that one could write a script for, place in the application's Configuration > Commands folder, and then apply as part of a batch process. It would require a little custom scripting though, I believe. Cutting and pasting from the History clipboard wouldn't be quite enough.
Are you creating thumbnails or full-size images?
Yup, that's where I'm struggling though..
I couldn't even find any examples, surely someone else must have wanted to do the same thing at some point using Fireworks?
I'd be creating full size images, I can achieve most of what I want to do using the functionality built into Fireworks but it doesn't seem to cater for canvas alterations much..
Might you be able to help at all please?
Thanks a lot!
