    Just a thought....
    like this:
    find ./ -type f -size +1M -mtime +426 \( -iname "*.jpg" ! -iname "rs_*" \) -exec convert -resize 60X60% -quality 60 {} rs_{} \;

    On windows 7 you can just search for all the jpgs on a shared drive like this in the file explorer search box

    Code:
    size:large *.jpg
    Then use Image Resizer for Windows to just right click and resize the images. In my experience it saves around 90% of the size by resizing to Large.
    Holy heck, just ran this on the Shared area here and found a little over 35,000 jpg's! :O
    Going to shrink them now, that's ridiculuous!
