Workflow for resizing and exporting

Recommended Posts

Hi There, 

 

i have the following case:

 

i have a photo in high resolution (2500x3000px for example).

Of course i want to save the higher resolution for further projects. 

My destination picture need 335x500px size an a small black border. 

 

In Fireworks i can work it out on the original resolution and export it with 

my destination resolution. How can i do that in Affinity ?

 

Thank you very much!

Hi Licorne,

 

When you export your image from Affinity by going to File > Export you will have the option to change the resolution of the exported file. As long as you choose the correct resampling  method most of the quality will be preserved when you make the image smaller, I would recommend using Lanczos 3. None of this will effect the original image so you will still have your high resolution image.

Hi Callum,

 

thanks for the answer. You are right, while exporting the file i can change the resolution. 

But when you try to change the resolution from 2500x3000 to 335x500 it will affect distortion to the Picture, 

cause the one does not relate to the other.

@MEB yes then then crop it to the right size... 

 

But i need to export the same picture with 4 different solutions... (same proportion)

That means i need to create a new File for every resolution i need, cause the original 

should be kept in its original size... 

 

And i need to calculate the proportion for the original by hand before.

No, there's no need to do that.

With the original image opened, go to menu File ▸ Export, insert the new width value you want and press Enter. Affinity will calculate the height field automatically (make sure the padlock icon in the middle is closed to force it to keep the same ratio) then click the Export button and select the folder where you want to save the file. You have to repeat this for the other 3 remaining sizes. Currently Affinity Photo doesn't perform batch processing (this will come later).

KK thank you very much for the Answer. I understand this. 

So the only problem i have is set the right ratio for the original. 

I think ill go that way for it: 

 

* Create a new empty picture with 3350x5000 (same as the destination ratio)

* then resample from 3350 to 2500 with padlock icon activated. So i will get the destination ratio.

* Bring in the Picture in, make the Border etc.  

* Export to different sizes.

 

I think thats it. Thank you very much for the help!
