[Solved] Change image aspect ratio

Post by naio »

I have a collection of PNG images with alfa channel, they have an aspect ratio of 3:2 and different sizes. I would like to convert them to 1:1 (squared).

I'm testing the conversion process editing a single image, my plan is to:
  • Smart crop the image, leaving it without margins. This works well :)
  • Add percentage margins. This doesn't work as I expect: whatever percentage I set it will just add 128px to each side of the cropped image :(
  • Enlarge the shortest side up to the measure of the largest side. I have no idea of how to achieve this :?:
Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Add percentage margins:
Please e-mail your batch settings.

Enlarge shortest to largest side:
Use the Make square batch.

Make square does the job, thanks for the suggestion.

As I wrote, I've been testing the steps from the single image editor, not the batch, I can't find 'Add percentage margins' in the batch editor!

My plan is:
  • Smart crop
  • Add percentage margins
  • Make square
But I miss the second step...

Thanks,

The percentage margins was not added to batch, yet.

I added them now:
