Not only can you use the Fit Image command as an automation, you can also include it as an extra step in several actions. This command lets you force an image to a specific size without losing any pixels. In this video, Richard Harrington walks through how to use the Fit Image command in Adobe Photoshop.
- Our next command is also useful…as an extra step in several actions.…It's the Fit Image command,…and it allows you to force an image…to fit to a particular size…without losing any pixels.…Here's how it works.…Let's open up one image here for a second.…And I'm going to go to my File command here,…choose Automate,…Fit Image.…And you see it gives us a target size.…
For example, maybe I want to fit this…into a presentation size…like 1920 by 1080,…and I'll tell it to not enlarge the image.…When I click OK, you see it forces the image down.…Now, if we check the size here…you'll notice that one of the dimensions matches.…You'll notice in this case the height is at 1080,…but the width is at 1512.…
That's because this doesn't exactly have…the right dimensions.…It fit.…It made sure that it didn't go over either number.…So, it applied the logic of resize…making sure that the document was smaller…than either the width or the height,…and that's what Fit does.…This can be quite useful…if you needed to make a complex action.…Let's undo here for a moment,…
