Resize Multiple Images in Fireworks

Learn how to resize or scale many images within a few minutes using a simple property in Fireworks called Batch Processing.

What is Batch Processing? It is a technique used to resize/export/rename/adjust/export several hundreds of images at one go. This fully automated technique is a great time saver for those who want to optimize/resize a bulk of images.

Step 1 : Open Adobe Fireworks, then go to File > Batch Process and browse the folder which has the images you want to resize/scale.

Step 3 : A screen opens with many batch options. Here you can add a selected task for the batch process. Choose the task as "Scale" as we want to resize multiple image files and we need to optimize these images into a smaller size.

Step 4 : The Scale option also has some options under it. Here I have selected the option as "Scale to Percentage" and the Percentage level as "25%". Then click the "Next" button. You can also choose scale to Size if you need the images to be a particular size.

Now browse the folder to view the cropped images using the batch process.

For example, The original size of the strawberry image is 1920px * 1200px and after the batch process(i.e, Scale to Percentage > 25%), the strawberry image size has been reduced into 400px * 300px. The strawberry image after the batch process can be seen below.
