    If you have Irfanview just do it with that... you can rename, switch format, overwrite, whatever you need to do. Fast and free and easy to use. Open it up and press B to get the batch window (it's on the menus somewhere as well, I can only remember the shortcut though)

    Exactly the method we use. I've also installed this on all of the computers for staff to use, although most of them still don't do so.

    I have resized all images on our shared drives for years without anyone noticing

    You can do it very easily with a simple windows 7 search for JPG's over 1mb, then right click on all the images and resize all at once.

    Another method is to use Dropbox + dropboxautomator.wappwolf.com - you can define folders in your dropbox where dropboxautomator will scale, rotate all pictures etc. in a way you define it.

    Works really fine over here plus you can upload the pictures to everywhere (facebook etc.) if you want to.

    Hmmmmm, maybe this should have been a poll?

    How does it work when you are using software installed on a workstation to resize on the server? Does it pull the photo and then copy it back? Or do you install on the server?

    Also, what is the best resolution to go for if doing a batch 1024 x 768? How far would this blow up to? A4?

    It reads the image and resizes on the fly. It locks Explorer for a few minutes but never had a problem with doing 10's of thousands of images sometimes.

    You can also install the resizer on the server if you want. All our servers are SSD based now so resizing takes seconds.

    I thought I had a tool here that would do this, and create a thumbnail page as it went. Can't find it though; must be at home and I can't remember what it is called. I'll be back...


    Here it is - Total Image Converter

    We have quotas on personal data but not on shared drives so staff just stick their pictures there instead.!

    I usually resize to 1920 x 1200 as that is the maximum resolution of any monitor we have, the data size is greatly reduced and pictures usually look fine when printed A4. Most usually want to put them on PowerPoints anyway - or as a tiny image on a single page Word document...
