resize jpegs to mail or publish.

resizing procedure:

Use open to select a directory. It will prompt you all files and directories included. Resizing options are selected via the drop down box. Three size op- tions are available. Tick "tree mode", if you want to process all subdirecto- ries. Untick it, if only the selected directory shall be parsed for jpegs.

settings and options

the default settings:

default settings for screen and mail can be checked by processing a dummy directory. the settings will be displayed at start of processing.

the tree mode option:

checking the tree mode check box results in processing not only the selected, but also all its sub-directories. This will have two additional effects: the result will not be put to a sub-directory, but to a sister directory at the same level. I. e. files from ~/here will be put to ~/00-small/here, instead of ~/here/00-small.

the preview option:

checking the preview box shows the image prior to conversion. You have to click on the image to manipulate. Drag the mouse to choose a crop selection, drag selection corners to resize, spin or move the selection. Type enter to select. "L" and "R" will turn the image left or right. Type page up / page down to change the image. Five seconds time out will resize and switch to next.

the fix date option

adjusts the file last modified date to the capture date of the image according to metadata found. Does affect both resized and original files. To adjust only original files, choose custom resize and target pixel size of 0 pixel.

the custom settings:

use the start button for custom to apply custom settings. enter them at the bottom toolbar. Note that the custom settings are only used, if resize is started as custom resize. This includes the resize directory. Tooltips tell you what the custom settings are good for.

One special remark

the resize directory may contain leading uptree path, e.g. "../00 - thumbs" instead of "00 - thumbs" will move the root one up. You have to use the appropriate se- parator to make it work "/" or "\", depending on the operating system you run the tool in.
