How To Resize Multiple Images On Photoshop Easily!

How To Resize Multiple Images On Photoshop Easily!

Resize Multiple Images – I Stumble into this situation when trying to resize 70 PNG images that have 5 to 8MB per picture into a smaller size. The goal is to make the size smaller not the resolution, so I tried to use a free plugin to compress the sizes automatically however in the free version the maximum file size to compress is 2 MB so this not fixing my problem.

I also try the fast image resizer program which works great for JPG files but unable to resize PNG transparent files properly, it will turn the transparent part into black, it seems to resize it into a JPEG format although the extension is PNG.

So I tried to use batch resize images on photoshop, below I outline the steps to follow it’s quite simple but there are some parameters you need to pay attention to.

Before doing the resize batch process make sure you put the same all the pictures with the resolution into a folder to make sure the result will perfect. Basically, Photoshop will record what we did to a file and copy those steps into the rest of the file on the same folder.

To record action

1. I put all pictures with the same resolution in a folder.

2. Make the second folder called resize (could be any name)

3. Open Photoshop and open the file you want to resize.

4. Click Window and click Actions

Resize Multiple Images

5. Click the folder icon to Create new set and give a name

batch resize images photoshop

6. Click the icon next to folder icon to create new action and give a name ( I name it 600px) and click the Record button.

create new action

7. Now you do the resize process as normal and save it to the resize folder.

8. Make sure to close the file (Click FileClose) at the end of the resize process to prevent Photoshop open many windows during the batch process and drain your computer’s memory.

To Batch the process

9. Open File – Automate – Batch

batch process

10. Choose the source folder that contains pictures you want to resize.

11. Make sure to tick the Suppress File Open Options Dialogs and Suppress Color profile Warnings, choose the destination folder and tick Override Action “Save As” Commands, and click OK button.

automate batch

12. You should see the resizing process running and give the new files with the resolution you want.

How To Replace Cisco Power Injector with Non Cisco Power Injector

How To Replace Cisco Power Injector with Non Cisco Power Injector

This article will show you how to use non-cisco power injector for Cisco POE enable devices, this could be Cisco phone, Cisco Access point, and other Cisco devices.

This was begun when we have several Cisco Phone 7940G without an adaptor, to get the replacement adaptor is not easy, it’s required 48V DC and 0.38 A adaptor.
Cisco Phone 7940G is POE capable device.

On the other hand, we have several unused POE injector Motorola AP-PSBIAS-2P2-AFR for Motorola Access Point AP 6521, the output is 48V and 0.35A so slightly different from the Cisco Phone adaptor.

Because I see that the difference is slim I am sure that using Motorola power injector on Cisco phone 7900 series will work fine.

When I plugged the cable from the Motorola power injector nothing happened with the Cisco phone, so I quickly unplugged it because I remember there is a 48 volts current that may destroy devices if not connected properly.

After searching on the internet I found that Cisco using different pin configuration, that is why Cisco POE devices must use Cisco power injector cannot use power injector from a different brand.

RJ-45 pin cable order configuration

Knowing this I make little modification with standard PIN configuration on the RJ45 connector and it works with the following configuration:

rj45 cable order

As you can see in the above picture that the cable color is:
How To Replace Cisco Power Injector with Non Cisco Power Injector 2
Pin 1                Pin 2    Pin 3             Pin 4               Pin 5              Pin 6        Pin 7                  Pin 8
Orange/White Orange Green/White Blue                Blue/White    Green      Brown/White     Brown
Orange/White Orange Green/White Brown/White Brown            Green       Blue/White        Blue
This pin configuration is works and this should work with another power injector from a different manufacturer to work with Cisco devices that able to use POE.
Although UTP cable has an RJ-45 connector each has 8 cable/pin, only 4 are used for data. Pin 1,2,3, and 6.
Pin 4,5,7,8 are reserved for telephone usage.
OK, this wraps up my posting on Replace Cisco Power Injector with Non-Cisco Power Injector I hope you find it useful. Let me know in the comment section if you having trouble implementing this. Please share this article.
