Often when I come back from a shoot, I want to batch process a bunch of raw files (NEFs for me) where the longest dimension of the resized image is known.
For example, I often need to create smaller jpeg images for web posting and also thumbnails for same. Regardless of whether the image is in landscape or portrait orientation, I want the longest side to be say 250 pixels max.
So for a landscape shot, the resulting jpg should be 250 pixels wide, and for portrait it should be 250 pixels high, with the other dimension calculated accordingly.
Anyone know of a Photoshop action that can do this automagically? That is detect if a shot is portrait/landscape and then resize appropriately so that the longest side is always a constant value?
I've always had to select all the landscape, run a batch job with an action then select all the portraits and run a different action batch job. Which is a bit of a pain doing all that selection.
