Batch Edits - Macromedia Fireworks

Hi I have a lot of small images (a few hundred) which i need to cut the top and bottom thirds from (to leave a 'letterbox' of the original in effect). Is there a way to create a command to do this en masse? TIA Wesley...

    Wesley?:

    Sure there is. Perform a few actions that selects the Object (such as
    Select All), Resize the canvas with the canvas command in Fireworks,
    then copy the steps and save as a Command. Make sure all images aare the
    same size though.

    Note: using the Crop canvas command twice will most of the time result
    in a horizontal line in the History panel, meaning the result can be
    unexpected. You generally don't want this. So instead of taking the
    risk, make 2 Commands instead and combine them into 1. This is what I
    like to call "Embedded Commands". Make the two Commands and perform them
    on the stage, then trun them into one Command, Optionally, you could
    just perform the 2 Commands in chronological order in the Batch window.

    Example:

    Command 1: fw.getDoentDOM().selectAll();
    fw.getDoentDOM().setDoentCanvasSize({left:30 6, top:247, right:506,
    bottom:457});

    Command 2: fw.getDoentDOM().setDoentCanvasSize({left:30 6, top:247,
    right:506, bottom:427});


    Have fun!
