It's possible to include both resizing and image overlay in a custom Fireworks command that can be used in batch processing. To get started, you could check out this tutorial that deals with the first step.
That article describes how to perform image resize and overlay (in that case, a watermark), and then how to record the steps and turn them into a custom command that can be later used in batch processing.
Once you saved the custom command, click File >> Batch Process, and follow the steps below:
- In the first window, select the images you want to process.
- On the next screen, open the Commands dropdown menu and select the custom command you created (it'll probably be on the bottom of the list), and click the Add button to include it in the batch process list.
- Finally, on the next screen select the location of the processed files, and optionally save the batch script for later use.
This is hugely helpful. It makes FW way more valuable!
Great! I'm glad it worked out for you!
