    Bulk Resize Photos

    Is there a way to bulk resize photos to make them smaller?

    I have used irfanview before to make the longest side 1000pixels and that reduces the size massively! Is there a way that i can point at a users my pictures folder and just tell it to overwrite all the photos with the smaller one? they are in lots of sub folders, i know i can do it a folder at a time but thats a lot of effort!!

    If you have a version of Photoshop anywhere you can do this. Just go to File --> Process Multiple Files. Follow the screen, pick source folder, destination folder, resize options, output format options, click go

    I use the MS image resizer tool, i like it as its just a right click - resize image, process. you can do a search of your users data drive for *.jpg then select all - resize. so select which ones you want to do.

    PIXresizer is the tool of choice for me.
    Very simple to use and will bulk resize to any format you like.

    If you have MS Office you can use MS Picture manager in the tools menu. It is simply 'Select All' and then 'edit picture - resize'. I use it for the individual school pictures so I can add them to the database.

    oh yeh forgot about bmp's!! The user in question is the food tech teacher who has photo evidence of all the gcse kids work and the photos were 3000x4000 pixels at 3mb each!! reduced them to 1300x800ish (medium on the checkboxes!), they dont need to be that highres for putting a tiny picture on a publisher doc!

    Batch mode / advanced options - bottom right corner "overwrite existing files".

    Subdirs - batch screen again, left side "include subfolders".

    Can't beat irfanview.

    +1 for reducing default image size on class cameras.
