Default Resizing To Scale

I have a ton of pics to convert to a size of 140x110px could also do as 100x100px.
I have tried batch convert in FW and end up with distortion, is there anyway in FW or any program to resize to scale without distortions..
I also have Adobe...

Originals are all various sizes....

Thanks.

use fit to area instead, though of course if they are different proportions you will lose some of the image one way or another

Both Fireworks and Photoshop should be able to do this without too much trouble. Have you ever made a custom action in Photoshop? Or it's batch function?

Hi,
Thanks, I have tried the fit to area, but end up with distortion
When I try the batch/scale 144x104, I get the length but not width.
If I am able to get the width starting with a pic that is narrower than the 144 it adds 50 lbs. to every girl...

Thanks..

You must be doing something wrong.. you're not explaining your process so I can't tell really.
This is not as hard as it seems.

If your images above is your result, they look fine. You wont be able to retain more detail in a thumb image than that, unless you add 2 steps of resizing and sharpen the image slightly between each resize.

Hi,
Sorry,
I am trying to resize the bottom photo to 144 w x 104 h with the complete picture and no distortion. I have used the batch/convert with scale at the 144 x 104, it sets the height but the width sets at 63

Yes, you said you tried that.
Did you try any of the links I gave you in the previous post?
You might just want to create your own Action.

Yes, just not getting it...
In the second tuturiol, the fellow stated that you could not size both ways, is this the problem...
I created a action and still things size out of proportion as in second photo
{second photo is size every pic needs to be...
sorry

am i missing something or just confused?

if you picture doesn't fit the proportions of the destination then you either will end up with a squashed picture (as above) or you need to crop it to the right proportions

i'm sure in fireworks (and possibly ps) if you fit to AREA then it will crop the image for you, otherwise manually crop the image to either 144 w x 104 h or a multiple therof (such as 288 x 108... before resizing)

have a look in the help files for bath processing and the resize options and FIT TO AREA/max width - maxheight
