We have a pile of 16 color GIF screen shots of various width (e.g. 800 or
1000 pixels). We're looking for a way to automatically convert them to, say,
430 pixels (maintaining aspect ratio).
I've found a way to do this manually in PaintShop Pro by increasing the
number of colors, resampling, and decreasing the number of colors again, but
the result is not perfect (although better than simply resizing). A better
result is possible by loading the graphic into an application like
PowerPoint, resizing it, and creating a screen shot of the resized screen
shot. But this is even more time consuming.
Does anyone now of
- a way or a tool to perform this operation automatically
- a way or a tool to perform this operation more simply
- a way or a tool to obtain a better result
Please respond to me directly at ederveen -at- hotmail -dot- com, and I will summarize
to the list.
Thanks for any hints,
