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.

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
