Re: Automating aspect ratio size

What's significant about the 4:3 shape?

Thanks to everyone who commented

If that script writes anything to disk, make sure you back things up before trying it out. I know you haven't used such a thing before, because you referred to it as a "java script" (java and javascript are two totally different languages, so you're actually using a javascript script). It's good to be cautious with anything that writes to files.

I just used that as an example, I need to take several 1000 images and crop them to 3:2 for a website.... problem being they are all different sizes.

Fortunately the JAVASCRIPT SCRIPT worked quite nicely

Yes it is a better option which I had forgotten about.
It also solves the aspect ratio changes between landscape and portrait images as it can recognise the mode and change automatically so a landscape shot that requires a 3:2 ratio followed by a portrait shot the ratio will change to 2:3 - at least that is what I seem to recall seeing!

I'm glad it worked that time, but still be careful with the use of javascript. It has a lot of ill-defined behavior, which can make it very dangerous if allowed to read and write to your disk or link/unlink files.
