How to Use Fit Image in Photoshop
Hi, guys! Yanik here for Yanik’s photo school. How are you guys today? Now today we’re going to look at a function in Photoshop called fit image. Now this is not exactly the same thing as image size and I’ll tell you why.
Basically, I'm doing this tutorial because of a lot of you asked me after the how to create actions video tutorial. I actually did an example in that using image size. Now a couple you asked me well what if I want both my portrait and landscape photos to have the same pixel with on the longest edge of the photo. Now of course, you cannot do that using image size because it will actually affect only the width or the height of your photo.
So if you have a portrait photo as well, if you said 800 pixel width, the width of the photo whether it would be portrait or landscape will be 800. So you’ll have different size photos. We don’t want that. We basically want the long edge whether it’s portrait or landscape to have the exact same width or height.
So how do we do this in photo shop? Before I show you how to do it in Photoshop you know how I like to compare with Lightroom. So I will just show you briefly how it’s done in Lightroom and it’s a lot easier in Lightroom because it’s basically a function that’s already in there. Let me just show you briefly. So I selected all the images down here to export so it’s bit like creating batch action. I just click on the export button and the fourth box down is called image sizing. Now usually by default it’s antique just sort of that it keeps the same image size but if you want to resize your image just click on resize to fit and you’ll have this first dropdown menu.
Now the first option width and height is exactly like image size in Photoshop which is not we want right now. What we want to do is use long or short edge. I usually use long edge and you only need to type in the number of pixels or if you want centimeters or inches of the longest edge, 800 is usually what I do to send friends or what not and that’s all you need to do in Lightroom and you don’t have the problem of creating an action or anything like that. Then you just click on export and you're done.
All your images will be exported. Your portraits and landscape photos will have their longest edge at 800 pixels, alright. Let’s get at the Lightroom now, go into Photoshop and let’s see how we can do that here, alright. You can do it, and it’s not that complicated, but if you want to do it for a batch of images, you’ll have to create an action now. If you're not sure to create an action go into the page of the classroom page on Yanik’s Photo School and look into the Photoshop tutorials probably one of the last ones down there, it’s called how to create a Photoshop action. And go through that tutorial and you’ll easily be able to integrate this function called fit image into your action.
Now, let’s look at this landscape photo here and let’s see how we can make this long edge. So all we need to do is go into file, automate, fit image, alright. Now what's really important is you want your width and height because here, it doesn’t say long edge or short edge or what not. It basically says width and height what you need to do is you want the width and height to be the same for both your landscape modes and your landscape photos and your portrait photos. You need to put the same number into both, alright.
This will not create a square image. It won’t squeeze anything. It basically constrains the proportions of your landscape and portrait images so that the longest edge will have this value. So its important to put the same value in both so that it affects the height when it comes to portrait photos and the width when it comes to landscape photos. Now just click okay. Now to confirm what I'm saying, let’s just go into image, image size and you’ll see that the longest edges which was the width is now 800 pixels and the height is shorter than that.
Now let me show you how it works on a portrait orientation photo. Same thing file, automate, fit image, we put in 800 pixels already, bam! Image size and this time it’s the height that was affected because it took the longest edge and added that value and it’s that simple it’s a quick little thing. But not a lot of people are aware of this function in Photoshop. They're just used the image size. So I hope you enjoy this little quick tutorial on how to make sure that your longest edge of your photos when you’re doing a batch process is the dimension that you’ll ask. So that way your images are relatively all the same size. This is Yanik Chauvin signing out and see you soon. Bye, bye.
