Description

Hey guys,
I would like to propose an export option to set the dimensions for the "long side" or "short side" of exported images, regardless of orientation.
At the moment (v2.4.4), if you put say, '3000', in the first of the two fields for "Max size", ALL images are exported as 3000 pixels wide.
If you put '3000' in the second field, then all images exported are 3000 pixels high.
Thanks in advance!

Not sure to understand your problem. If you put 3000 in both entries then you can export pictures independently of the orientation. The longer side will be 3000 and the other will be of course reduced keeping the aspect ratio. Seems like this is what you're looking for, no?

Pascal,
Thanks for the response, and yes, you are correct.
That does exactly what I wanted it to do!
I could have sworn that at some point in the past, I tried just what you suggested, and instead of performing like this, it made all the images square, disregarding aspect ratio.
But, it certainly currently does what you would expect it to do.
Please feel free to close this request.
And thanks again!
Cheers,
Bruce.
