    Default Mass Resize of Photos to JPEG format

    Hi

    Can anyone assist?

    I want to resize all my photos to a jpeg format size picture so that I can just use it to send out as email. Currently the pictures are relatively large (about 3~4Mb size), and I want to do it in one go, not to individually load one up and then save as into a compressed format. Please enlighten me how.....


    Thank you all.

    I am currently using ACDSee to do mass resizing and renaming. It has a built-in function to resize both the photos resolutions as well as the JPEG compression rate.

    Hi

    You can try ImageMagick from www.imagemagick.org. Download and install it.
    *** Make a copy of your photos in a separate directory e.g. c:\photos.
    Then open a Command prompt and type in the following commands to resize to 50% of the original size. Or whatever % you want.
    *** Make sure you run it on copies of your photos and not the originals.

    c:\> cd \photos
    c:\> mogrify -resize 50% *.jpg

    you can record actions in Photoshop, then do a batch encode, just do entire folders at a time.

    Another option would be to use Picasa from Google.
    Export the files as resized jpgs. =)

    I use Irfanview. It has a very simple batch conversion & renaming function. You can choose to 'resample' (instead of 'resize') the images which gives a smoother result. You can even apply slight sharpening to every resampled image during the auto-conversion stage. The software can be downloaded for free at www.irfanview.com

    Hi,
    If you are Nikon user, you should have got Picture Project with the camera. I use the export feature to do my resizing. Works quite well for me.

    Hi,
    If you're using photoshop, you can go to:
    File >> Scripts >> Image Processor


    Then key in the maximum width and height dimensions you want for your photos:

    I just use nikon view and under "tools>copy and resize as jpeg". save in a separate folder and add "_web". Choose the size and resolution. Good for websites and emails. I even use it for raw formats, and use edit if neccessary
