I need to use exhibit island. I have about 200 photos but I can't find a batch way to resize them. There does not seem to be a display mode with this style. Any ideas other than doing each photo by itself?

3D-Album has some batch editing features, including resizing. Check out the following two posts.

You can use the 3D-Album "Collect" batch processing.

1. In the upper panel, locate your 200 photos.
2. In the lower panel, select a new "Album" folder by clicking the blue browse button. You can create a folder in the dialog or just select an empty one.
3. In the left panel, check the "Perform the task as specified" option.
4. Check Auto reduce size. I sugggest you choose 512 or 768.
5. If you want to crop your photos to square images, check "Let me crop". Square images are the best for the Exhibition#1 style.
6. Select all photos or only the photos you want to resize in the upper panel.
7. Click the "Collect" Button (the first button in the middle toolbar). Or you can drag and drop these selected photos into the lower panel.
8. A dialog will pop up and display images one by one for you to crop.
9. If the photo is already a squre one, just click the "Next Step". The current photo is resized and the next photo will be displayed.
10. If the photo is a portrait or landscape or you just want to crop it, drag a square (not necessary to be exact square) marquee, then click the Next Step button.

Please note: if you do not want crop, all your selected photo will be resized automatically and the dialog will never show.

Hi Bill, I did see (oops, I meant I did not see) your post before I submit mine. Yes, the 3D-Album batch editing by Photo Edit tool is also a very powerful and convenient way to handle a large number of photos.

Nan,

I'm glad you provided such good directions. I think it's great when two or three of us offer multiple suggestions, and I think it's really great when someone offers the step by step directions.

Keep up the great work!

Bill

Thanks everyone for your help. It would have taken me forever to find that procedure. I printed the step-by-step and now it's in my user guide. Thanks again!!
