    Batch JPG to 72 DPI

    feefriend
      I have read through threads on changing dpi through batch process, but I can not find answer I am looking for. I have about 200 images I have to convert to 72dpi 1024x768 JPG's from TIF's. I understand that the resolution of 72dpi is not necessary for web browsing, but since it is a requirement for the images I have to submit, I have no choice but to change dpi to 72. Can I do it through Fireworks? I see nowhere to change dpi, only size.

          Open one of the images in Fireworks and change its resolution to 72 PPI
          [Modify > canvas > Image size. Change the resolution to 72 PPI. Click OK
          to accept the changes and close the dialog box.

          Open the History panel and click on the "Image Size" step to select it.

          Open the history panel options menu and select save as command.

          Give the command a name you can remember its function by.

          When adding commands to the batch process you'll be able to use the one
          you just created to resample your images to 72 PPI.

                I realize I'm inquiring on an old post, but when I attempt to batch resize to 72 dpi following the prescribe method I find that it works for either portrait or landscape (whichever I was working off of), but distorts the other. So for example, it works for landscape, but distorts portrait.

                Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

                  I usually have two different jobs for resizing horizontal and vertical
                  pictures.

                    Yeah, I've done the same thing. Isn't there some way to perform a 72 dpi batch resize regardless of the orientation?

                      did you guys come up with in answer to this.  I'm needing my pngs to be 300 dpi for a banner (6' x 2') I'm creating, I didn't know fireworks only goes to 10000 pixels.  So I can't image resize resolution.  I currently have the resolution at 100dpi.  I have both illustrator and photoshop, but when I export the fireworks as a psd file then in photoshop change the resolution it makes my layers not as clear (in other words the individual layers just scale they don't change to 300dpi)  Then if I try to batch process to 300 dpi it only scales the image one direction not both.  Needing help please!

                          Ik know this is an older post, but because I'm still a Fireworks-user I thought I would answer this question because I had the same problem: I wanted to resample my images but keep the original size.

                          This is how I achieved this:

                          -Open any image

                          -Modify > Canvas > Canvas size

                          -Make the canvas size bigger then any amige you're resampling (eg 4000x4000)

                          -Open the history panel and save this action as command (canvas size 4000x4000)

                          -Then resample the image: Modify > Canvas > Image Size

                          -Resample your image to eg. 300 dpi (leave checkbox "Resample image" clear)

                          -Save as command (eg. resample 4000x4000 300dpi)

                          -Open a new (or reopen the samen image)

                          -Change canvas size to bigger then image

                          -Trim Canvas: Modify > Canvas > Trim Canvas

                          -Save this last command (eg. Trim canvas)

                          -In you batch process use these 3 commands. (canvas size 4000x4000 >  resample 4000x4000 300dpi > Trim canvas)

                           

                          All images will be resampled to 300 dpi, leaving the original size in pixels intact!

                            That is a lot of work for a simple dpi change. Why not simply use IrfanView's  batch command, and set a new DPI value? Lightning fast, and takes a couple of seconds.

                             

                            IrfanView is free for Windows. Use the right tool for the right job, in my opinion.
