    you can use free programs like picasa, they should be able to do it.

    use lightroom/photoshop/camera maker software(nikon-capture nx for eg) to resize using the tools...can do batch processing as well

    Nearly everything is better than this.
    Never overwrite your existing (original files), keep copies (downsized or edited) in a 2nd folder. Have a look at tools with workflow implementation (Lightroom) or batch processing features. The forum "Digital Darkroom" has plenty of tips. But using the Search function here should flood you with results.

    better suggestions??

    you have already kiss your original photos goodbye, don't do it on your original file again.


    there are tons of freeware can do this, be it one file at a time or batch process.

    Faststone is good, IrfanView is also another good one

    maybe some people already know a lot about photography, and also very confident with his/her gear, so don't read user manual.
