    macros do not keep formulae

    I need to resize hundreds of photos for publishing on the web, and they come in different aspect ratios, portrait/landscape and from different cameras. I created a macro from Document→Resize Document… , checked Resample, opened the padlock, and typed the formula /2 (divide the number of pixels by 2) in both the width and height fields. That should reduce the image to a quarter of the pixels. But no: it calculates the half width and height of the current image, remembers those values and then applies them to any image it is told to work on! And therefore also the macro canot be applied twice: it does not reduce by half, it reduces to a fixed value which is the same the second time. (1) it would be excellent if the formula would be stored in the macro instead of the result on a particular image (2) is there another way to do it that I have overlooked? (obviously I could first sort the photos into all the portrait ones from a specific camera, then all the landscape ones, and so on for each camera, but then I might as well do it by hand!) (3) is there a way to see what a macro step does? It seems impossible to see what an "atomic" step such as resize document has actually recorded.
