My experience so far

Post by kdaube »

I started to use ImBatch 2017 with version 5.3 and use is for the following task:
Tool bar buttons: Resize and convert to gray. From a base image 256x256 pix I derive six sets of size 18 x 18, 27 x 27 and 36 x 36 pix, both colour and greyscale. See usage at https://www.daube.ch/docu/files/etb-fm14up-en.pdf, page 14.
I'm quite happy with the results. In few cases I modified the base image to get better results. I start with 256 x 256 and not a multiple of 18, because for older FrameMaker versions I had to derive sizes 16, 24 and 32 wide icons.
I also tried out the vectorise function to develop base versions in svg. But this was not successful in previous versions of ImBatch. Will try again.

Thank you for sharing!
Vectorize function is quite tricky, especially for multi-color images in batch mode. As for me, it is easier to redraw the images from scratch to get the nice-looking SVG file.
