Nevermind ppi, that's a print parameter entirely moot for screen viewing. It'll be ignored anyway.
Think absolute number of pixels. 1000 - 1500 pixels, long side, is as good as anything, it will fit comfortably on most screens.
Use File > Scripts > Image Processor and set "resize to fit" there.
Wouldn't that stretch it if you resize to fit? Or am I just being silly.
For me another way to do it is to go to IMAGE > IMAGE SIZE, then a window pops up.
There you can change the size of the image and the dpi/resolution.
You can create an action and batch your images through this action if you have several to do.
in actions panel, press record ( this will record all steps you take), open an image and resize (windows = alt + ctrl + i) and change the size of your image and press ok. Then save for the web ( ctrl+alt+shift+s) choose file type and location to save the image. Then in the actions panel, press stop.
You now have a action that will resize your images quickly.
Now you can go to file>automate>batch
choose your action, which folder of images and the new destination of the resized images.
Wouldn't that stretch it if you resize to fit?
No, that's why this is so useful. You define width and height in pixels, and then it's resized to fit within this rectangle. They're not absolute dimensions, as they would be if you used Image Size.
You can access this separately, as File > Automate > Fit Image.
If you are worried about your images being misused - as well as lowering resolution , put a watermark over them.
This can be an image or text. Just put it on a layer above the image and lower the transparency so it is visible but not so obtrusive you can't see the image. You can easily do this with an action
Interesting... like I always say there is more than one way to do things in Photoshop.
I have to agree with Dave.... a watermark can help you if you are worried about someone using it without permission or payment.
Good point Dave!
