Custom settings

Top  Previous  Next

Select the "Custom" setting to have complete control over the size and quality of the main and thumbnail images.

 

The image is sized using high quality interpolation to fit the inside the box defined by the size parameters while maintaining the same aspect ratio. e.g. an image 1024x768 pixels would be resized to 512x384 if the size was specified as 512x512. Images are only reduced in size. If the requested size is larger than the original image size the original image size is preserved.

 

The JPEG quality can be set from 0 (maximum compression, minimum quality, small file size) to 100 (maximum quality, minimum compression, large file size).

 

The unsharp mask settings control how the image is sharpened. The radius setting defines the radius of the Gaussian in pixels (not counting the center pixel). Amount defines the percentage difference between the original image and the blur image that is added back to the original. Threshold defines the threshold in pixels needs to apply the difference amount.

 

The predefined settings use the following values:

NOTES:

 

1.If the convert option is selected, RAW files are converted using the "As Shot" settings for white balance, saturation, sharpness and contrast.
2.To use custom raw conversion parameters, convert the RAW files to JPEGs or TIFFs into a separate directory using the raw convert tools and then generate the HTML pages from there.
3.The source files for HTML images can be any of the file types supported by BreezeBrowser Pro e.g. JPEGs, raw files, TIFFs.

 

Hint: If you prefer to prepare each fullsize image individually and only want BreezeBrowser Pro to generate the HTML pages and the thumbnails you can do it as follows:

 

1.Edit and save each fullsize image as a JPEG at the desired size and quality
2.Select the "Reuse existing images" checkbox
3.Set "Custom" settings and set the main image size to a value larger than the fullsize images
4.Run the HTML generator and BreezeBrowser Pro will copy any JPEG originals that are smaller than the main image size settings into the HTML output directory instead of resizing and sharpening them again.
