    raw recruit needs help with basic thumbnail

    steveonedoor
      I have searched the help files and the discussion groups and cannot find a reference to the creation of a thumbnail. Therefore, I am confident everyone in the world but me knows how to do that. But I need a thumbnail! How do I make or get or find or create a thumbnail from a jpeg? Thanks ... Steve

          Just resize a copy of the image. Modify > Transform > Numeric Transform.

            Not to crash in on a thread, but what if you want to create multiple thumbnails at once and you want them all to be a uniform size and you don't want to have to modify, transform every one of them individually?

            I have several product photos that were sent to me (about 50) which are huge and I don't want to have to open and resize every single one of them individually. I was hoping Fireworks was smart enough to go into the directory where they are at and resize all of them at once to a uniform size thumbnail.

                Alex:

                Thank you! That was perfect, it did exactly what I needed. Too bad this never made it into the help files or at least not that I could find under the obvious heading of "thumbnails".
