Free Bash Script Batch Resizing Using Command Line and ImageMagick

If you deal with images, sooner or later you will want to automate the repeating process of saving different sizes from one source image. If you own Adobe Photoshop and do not save too many output sizes, Photoshop actions are probably quite enough for your needs. However, keeping a Photoshop action up-to-date is quite painful — change a source folder, and you're screwed.

Batch Resize Script

As you probably noticed in Smashing Magazine's monthly desktop wallpaper series, especially if you work on wallpapers, preparing them for a plethora of desktop resolutions is quite a task. On my own wallpapers website, I generate more than 300 JPEG files for each wallpaper!

Reading through these documents is an opportunity to learn from experienced designers in a collaborative setting.

Blueprints For The Web: Specctr Adobe Fireworks Plugin

There is an aspect to Web design that no one likes to talk about: spec’ing. We all do it, we all hate it, but we also understand that specs are vital to both designers and developers.

Blueprints For The Web: Specctr Adobe Fireworks Plugin

For those who aren’t familiar with the term in this context, “specs” is short for specifications—in the case of design, they are instructions that specify colors, fonts, sizes, spacing and so on, just like a blueprint. Specs are a crucial part of the design and development process for companies with big teams and for small companies that have to outsource some of their development.
