If I remember right you and Grimmy have successfully implemented a new field. Would be great if you guys could make a tutorial here how it can be done.
For your question a new tool was released recently: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15957.0

It's still on the To Do list. But the thread offers some other tools too read a few post below. But I think you should wait until it's implemented because the mentioned tool doesn't really export (only a screen snap shot). How about to use the high-rest artwork of  Jake Rowell?

I managed to export the fields with tilemaps but the images are very little. Jake's  artworks are amazing but I need backgrounds of forest, caves, etc. If someone could tell me How I can resize the fields without lossing too much quality I will be gratefull.

Did you manage to export *all* the fields from FFIX or did you just test out a few and notice they were too small to use?

There is a photoshop plugin called Alien Skin Blow up that can resize images with minimum quality loss, its hundreds of times better than photoshops normal method, you could give that a try, theres a free 30 day trial on their website.

I'm also interested in getting all the FF9 (and FF8 too) backgrounds, but there doesn't appear to be any way to batch export them, and considering each game holds hundreds and hundreds of backgrounds doing them all 1 by one would be extremely time consuming. If you're figured out how to batch them please do share, I'm sure a lot more people than just me will be interested.

I extracted the field of ff8 with deling and for ff9 I used the tools of this post: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=14274.0.

I will try with blow up 3 plugin, thanks mate.

Extracting the backgrounds I can do with ease, as there are tools for this. Its extracting in bulk I'm interested in, 1by1 takes forever, like an hour or 2 per disc, especially since you're required by all those tools (maybe not pupa, not tried that yet) to give a name to them. Batching is what interests me mostly.
