Image Processor Resize Options

I'd like to see the Image Processor include a resize option that allows the user to specify a single dimension (long edge or short edge) and have the other dimension default based on the existing aspect ratio. This way landscape and portrait images can be resized at the same time. This is available in Lightroom.

Alternatively, the Export command in Bridge could be amended to allow the user to save TIFF files rather than just JPEG.

correct me if i'm wrong but this is possible now.
if I want the longest dimension to be 1800px I enter 1800px in both text boxes.
image processor will process the longest edge - either horizontal or vertical - to 1800px.

Actually, I think that is true. But it's certainly not intuitive. And it could be made clearer (as it is in LR).

its done the same way in other applications like Capture One. I use Image processor alot and while i wish it had a few more options - I find it very useful especially when using it with certain actions.

I really don't care about other programs. It's not intuitive in Image Processor. I'm simply making a suggestion to make it more clear. That IS what this section for the forum is for, if I'm not mistaken.

well i work with alot of imaging programs and I see it alot. sure there could be more options. but for people that want more options maybe adobe wants to sell those people something like LR. I don't think alot of development goes into bridge anymore and I think LR is a big reason why.

Going back to your second request - why would you use the export command? Image processor can output tiff, psd or jpgs. or all at the same time.

Not only is it not intuitive, it's totally incorrect. The UI provided is not "the longest edge", it is represented as "absolute x and y pixel dimension". The reason why, is because if you only fill out the x dimension and hope to leave y dimension variable, an error message appears that you must provide a y dimension. That implies that the UI is asking you for absolute dimensions for output, therefore multiple sized images, or images in different orientations cannot be handled in proportional fashion. This is a major shortcoming for an export feature by it's flagship photography product
 
Also, resizing based on a percentage would be highly desirable as this is available in all other adobe products.
