Resize picture(s) to
When resizing pictures with Photo Gadget Pro you can choose one of four
available preset sizes, 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 240x320 (320x240)
or you can set any custom picture size you want. If you want to resize
your pictures to a custom size, choose Custom picture size option and
type in new size in pixels.
Note regarding 240x320 preset size: If you
select more than one picture
for resizing and choose 240x320 from the list the program will pay
attention to each picture's orientation and resize it accordingly,
landscape pictures to 320x240 and portrait to 240x320. If you want all
pictures to fit to only one of those two sizes regardless their
orientation then use Custom picture size option instead.
Keep aspect ratio
When this option is enabled Photo Gadget Pro will make sure the
original picture proportions are maintained within the selected new
size. So, if you are resizing a picture that is 1200x900 (4:3
proportion) to 600x400 (3:2 proportion) then the picture will actually
be resized to 533x400 (4:3 proportion).
Do not enlarge if
When this option is enabled Photo Gadget Pro won't enlarge your
pictures. For example if you have a picture that is 400x300
those selected for resizing to 800x600 that picture will not be
resized. Increasing the size of a picture causes a loss in its quality,
but if you still want to do that simply disable this option.
Output file options
Four output picture qualities are available for JPG
files: low (highest
compression), medium, high and best (lowest compression).
If you enable Max file size option you will be able
the target size for output JPG files. For example, this may be useful
when you are preparing pictures for uploading to web services that
maintain a limit on acceptable file size. There are two important
things to note about this option. One is that if you want to control
output file size then you can not control the picture quality so for
large resolution pictures and restricted file size you can end up with
poor quality output. The other thing to note is speed of processing
pictures that will be significantly slower when this option is enabled
because the program has to try different levels of JPG compression to
get a file size that is close to the target you set.
For destination folder you can choose a custom folder (by default the
program will use "...\My Documents\My Pictures\Photo Gadget Pro") or
same as source folder (in other words the folder where the
picture's original file is stored).
If you choose new file name option then the
take the original picture's file name and add a size suffix (e.g.
"_800x600") to it.
For example, if the original picture's file name was "London panorama
12.jpg" and new picture size is 800x600 then the program will save the
resized version as
"London panorama 12_800x600.jpg". However, if you choose the same as
original option, then there will be no change in the original picture's
file name. In that case if the resized version is
going to be saved to a folder that also happens to be the one where the
original picture file is stored then the original picture file will be
overwritten and lost.
