What is Batch2Fit.ifx (B2F)?
----------------------------

B2F is an ARexx script written for ImageFX 2.1 (tested on 2.1.2027). 
It is accessed by clicking on the [Arexx] button on the ImageFX 
ToolBox Panel and choosing the script by name from the file requester 
presented.


What does B2F do?
-----------------

B2F is a batch processor designed for a fairly specific application: 

    Scale a number of images of varying sizes to a user specified 
    page size while maintaining the original image aspect ratio.

    Center the result on a black background with a user specified 
    screen size.

    Save the resulting images in the format of choice and with a user 
    specified naming convention that maintains at least part of the 
    original filename.

This script was inspired by an article in the February 1996 issue of 
Video Toaster User Magazine by Michael McBride that described a rather 
involved method for converting images designed for print in a DTP 
program to images that could be displayed by the NewTek Video Toaster.  
Refer to that article for a detailed explanation of what B2F was 
designed to do.  The entire process is automated using B2F.
