    batch tool to reduce jpg sizes?

    Hi all,
    I have a massive wad of jpg images from years of camera use within the school.
    I am looking at saving a bit of server space so I am trying to find a tool to reduce the size of the images "en masse"

    Has anyone anything in mind that might do this?

    Thanks

    I use this tool - resize

    You can't beat it at 729 KB, easy to use drag and drop.

    Irfanview is very good too!
