If you’re a print designer who regularly receives batches of digital artwork from various sources then this might save you a bit of time.

This AppleScript batch processes folders of images (can also contain nested folders) and creates a report of image dimensions, resolution and colour, including what size each image would be at 300dpi. Here’s some example output:

sizer

You can see that it also highlights where images are lower than 300dpi.

Originally written for jaypeg as a useful tool to help ascertain problems (e.g. images in the wrong colour space, or too low resolution) and also help determine which images might be suitable for printing at larger sizes.

hi, really like the rotary screensaver setting but i’ve noticed an oddity..

i’m running it in russian language mode on a windows vista computer (UK/GMT timezone) and it’s displaying the hour one ahead of the actual time

e.g. right now it’s 2:30pm but the screensaver is displaying 3:30pm

any idea if this is likely to be something on my computer upsetting it that i can fix?
