Chapter 15. Automation > Batch Processing

Batch Processing

Doesn’t it drive you crazy to have a number of images that all have to be sized to fit in an image block, and then each exported to a web format such as a JPG? Open the file, change the image size (make sure that it keeps its proportions), choose the export format, export it, and start all over again.

Batch processing in Fireworks is the way that you can combine commands such as these into a megacommand and apply it to multiple files in one step. Available commands, such as export, scale, find and replace, and rename, can include commands that you created from the History panel and others you can download from the Macromedia Exchange. After you delve into batch processing for making changes on multiple images, you can see the power behind this tool.
