I'm looking for a program, or some function of Photoshop CS or 5.5, that will take all the files in a folder and make them all lower resolution without me having to resize each one individually.

Any ideas or suggestions?

That's very simple. Just record an action while you resize any one photo to the size you're seeking. Now use File | Automate | Batch and choose the action you created. It will do the same action to all of the photos in the folder you point to.

You can also get products like ACDSee 7 or BreezeBrowser Pro that have a proofing function built in.

Cheers,
rfs

Hi
Just browsing but I looked at your portfolio and loved the look of the main photo. So soft.

Have you tried 'Contact Sheet II' in the PS File>Automate menu? I've found it useful at times. ACDSee is also a good choice, more control over the layout than PS.

I had that exact problem... never new it an nVidia/Dual head issue but that's my setup.

Version 6.0.3 seems to have the lockup weirdness fixed but it still chokes on directories with more than 300 files and TIFFs saved without a preveiw.

You have any strange slowdown with the screen in PS when you go to crop something?

To recap, you have two free and simple options:

1) Record an action of you taking one of the pictures and reducing it to the target resolution. Then use Automate->batch and run the action on the directory where the pics are. Be sure to use copies or else specify that you don't want it to overwrite the original files.

2) Use Automate->Web Photo Gallery. Set the "Main" settings to your desired resolution. When it's done, just delete everything but the "images" folder, which will have your resized images. Advantage: this is a smart action and will resize in the largest dimension if you have both portrait and landscape images. Disadvantage: this will use the "save for web" command and will reduce your color gamut.

I just played around with Contact Sheet II and that is going to serve my purposes. For giving the models a CD of web ready and printable images though, I'm going o have to use RFS's macro (the computer kind of macro) method.
