I have to print small labels from a Products database. Each Product has an image that I have to squeeze on a 1 in. x 1 in. area on the label. What is the best way of doing this?
Simply place a small container field on the label and configure it to reduce or enlarge the image to fit the field. That should do it.
I want to automate this in a script. What script steps shoul I use to make sure the image will fit in the container field.? Thank you for helping.
There's no script step. You must format the container on the layout.
Check out the Data panel of the layout Inspector tool, where you set the reduce/anlarge settings, and be sure to constrain original proportions of the image.
If you actually want to downsize the stored images, that can be done via scripting, though it's not necessary if you intend to store the larger image anyway. For a sample file for downsizing the actual images, see another thread on this forum at:
