    Mass Image Resize

    Never come across software that does this before, but need it now

    Is there any software were I can specify a width of the image for instance and it resizes all the images keeping the ratio with the height?

    Thanks

    James

    K, for anyone interested, I found one. Its found here:

    http://www.rw-designer.com/picture-resize

    I needed it to resize my sisters wedding photos so they would be suitable to put on a website and it did the job very well.

    Re: Mass Image Resize

    Whats really odd is that I knew about both of those pieces of software, but I didn't realise IrfanView has facilities for batch resize (I had a very quick browse though the program but couldn't see anything) and I didn't think about imagemagick at all .

    I'll bear in mind for future reference though

    Thanks

    just use the microsoft image resizer. select the pics in explorer, right click "resize" and pick your new size.

    Is this an XP Pro only feature? I don't have that, I was wondering why I'd never seen it before.

    Normally I'd resize pictures using an image editor like The GIMP, but when I've been given scores of photos it becomes tedious .

    I managed to get the website up and running in four hours though... by far beats the >100 hours I had to use for the school website.

    Thanks, I dunno why i've never come across that before. Can't download it on this PC for certain reasons which shall remain nameless, but i'll be sure to give it a go at work

    ahh stolen the neighbours laptop whilst they are out and don't want them to know you've been playing with it when you give it back just before they get home.

    I use photoshop or fireworks.

    If its a CMS and other people are uploading images i would imagemagick to do the resize.

    Re: Mass Image Resize

    Just needed a program to resize pictures and remembered this thread

    That powertoy from Microsoft is very nice and does the job of resizing giga-pixel images for use on websites very simply and easily without teaching my users how to use GIMP

    regards

    Re: Mass Image Resize

    All our students upload their pictures to our website to use as their avatar so I daily have to resize a dozen or so images and Photoshop is my current preferred method - easy and quality results.

    There is an alternative for anyone interested - but not an easy one.

    This is probably available in php too but that is outside my knowledge. In ASP.NET there is a function to resize an image to display on the website - but rather than downloading the full image and resizing it like normally happens when you set the image size on a website it actually resizes it server side before it sends it to the client.

    This does away with the task of producing additional thumbnail pictures etc.

    Not got any more info on it at the moment - but now you know about it (assuming you did not already - and I am sure many of you do) you can go discover.
