Batch Export or Resize from Designer (Tshirt to Hoodie size for Merch by Amazon)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm a new AD user, creating tshirt designs for merch by Amazon. Simple file, 6 artboards laid out per file, export all 6 slices to transparent PNG in Tshirt dimensions 4500px x 5400px. (Yay, works great so far.)

 

1 - I need to resize the files to smaller Hoodie dimensions 4500px x 4050px. Can I batch resize with AD (or AP)?

2 - In some cases, I expect I'll need to resize a few elements in the design. Can I somehow batch resize all artboards and objects, so I have an editable Affinity Designer file to work in? (I searched for macros in help files but I'm not using right keywords! help.) :) 

 

What is best/most straightforward solution to getting the ? (I also have Affinity Photo, if needed, but would love to open as few programs as possible.)

 

Anybody who's already doing something like this have a more sensible process? :)

Hi Ariana M,

 

You can perform batch operations with Affinity Photo but not with Affinity Designer I'm afraid. You should be able to resize all of the elements within your document using the batch operations in Affinity Photo.

Is there an updated video or tip regarding this.  The video is no longer available.  I need to resize a bunch of shirts for Amazon Merch Hoodie size requirement.

Thanks,

Fred

Hi Ariana, did you figure this out?  If you did you mind sharing your solution. I'm new to AD as well and trying to end my expensive Adobe CC subscription and slowly migrating all my designs into AD.

 

Thanks,

Fred

@IslanderFJ - i was able to batch resize designs using Aff Photo (macros). But i usually just use the free Merch Factor resizer tool (google it) or the Merch Wizard resize feature. Hope that helps!
