This isn't the easiest problem to describe (never mind solve) which is why I'm not having much luck Googling it...
I have a folder full of photos that I wish to thumbnail. These photos vary vastly in dimensions; some are fat, some are thin, some tall, some short, etc, etc, etc. What I wish to do is create a batch script in Fireworks that will take an image and output a fairly decent thumbnail.
Let's say I want to make 100*100 thumbs. First I would resize the image so that the shortest side is 100; maintaining the aspect ratio would set the other side to whatever. I would then crop the image 100*100, maybe from the top, who knows -- that's not the issue here.
My issue is, how can I tell Fireworks to resize with the shortest side? I have tried several different ways, and created scripts using the history panel, but it always ends up with a load of images that have edges that are shorter than 100 pixels.
