Does there exist a program (preferably freeware or shareware) that does nothing but go to a given directory (or to flagged files w/i a directory) and re-size them to specified dimensions? For instance, "resample everything in this directory to be 400 pixels on the long side."

If not, is there more sophisticated image manipulation software that includes this feature?

Thanks,
Lee

I don't know of a stand alone program off the top of my head for this, but there are probably some out there. I just batch my files through Photoshop, works great. Also almost any gallery creation software (I use express thumbnail creator) will do what you're wanting to do.

Hi,

I frequently use the program ACDSee to batch rename, resize and convert formats. It is great when working with a large number of files. It also has one of the easiest to use and fastest browsers around. An "Optimizer" is included which will take a jpeg file and reduce the size dramatically for easy e-mailing.

I apologize if I sound like a commercial, but I have been using this program since I ran W95 on a '486'. I currently have version 6, and they just introduced ver. 7.

Here is their web site. You can even get a free trial.

Enjoy,

Tom

Have you tried the Image Resizer PowerToy for Windows XP?

Lee,

Windows XP will do it for free. You just need to download and install the Image Resizer
PowerToy from the Microsoft website. It will enable windows explorer to resize one or many image files with a right-click.

Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP

It doesn't have many power user options, but if you need something quick - say to reduce jpgs to e-mail someone - it works great.

I've also used the HTML Slide Show Wizard and the CD Slide Show Generator PowerToys and they work great too.

Hope this helps,
Michael

I use IrfanView. It's freeware, easy to use, and you are able to resize images by percentage, too. Pretty handy when dealing with mixed horizontals and verticals. There are some gizmos included (viewing EXIF info and the like) but I mostly use it to batch resize and batch rename files.

Here's the link ...

Good luck with it!
