Hi,
I have been using Pixelmator for years , and recently came across this great Automator script to batch resize images.

http://help.moble.com/theme-external-tools-pixelmator

I had about 27,000 to do, sizes from 1MB to 11MB - about 15GB.

The script worked fine but
-It overwrites the original file;
-It will overflow the app memory.

Is there anyone out there who can cast some advice as to updating the script so the original is not affected?

My MacBook is the current model I7 etc with 16GB Ram, but was insufficient to handle more than about 4GB of images at a time. I ended up dropping back to 100 files at a time..

Is there any way to predict how much memory will be required?
Or a script to process one image at a time rather than holding all the images in memory and then saving them out?

regards
The Timp
