    Problem #1
    1000's of images need to be thumbnailed, I need to have each image opened, cropped to a aquare 1:1 aspect ration, and then sized to 80 x 80 px. They may be portrait or landscape, and they will all be different sizes, I would like the crop to happen from both edges wqually.

    Problme #2
    First, run trim to tran pixels, then, crow the canvas to make the image square, so the smallest side == the largest side, no image distortion, just a canvas resize.

    AppleScripting is the way to go. You can save a script as a droplet, which can be used for batching.
