Batch Processing

Batch processing images is like setting up an assembly line in your computer to process lots of images. Starting with a group of images, you can set Fireworks up to execute a series of commands on each image and save the results. You can use batch processing to export a series of image files quickly; resize the images; find and replace colors, fonts, text, and URLs in source images; and execute Fireworks scripts from the Command menu. After you set up a batch, you can save it as a script, allowing you to execute the same batch process on another set of files.

Something to keep in mind when batch processing is that once you start a batch process, you can’t interrupt it except to cancel the entire operation. For instance, you can’t stop the batch process when it’s working on a specific file, make some more changes to that file, and then continue the batch process. You can cancel a batch process, but this will cancel all further file operations, leaving you with an incomplete set of processed and backup files. (Files are always backed up before processing so that no original information will be lost if the batch process is canceled.)
