What do you do when you shoot a lot of images at a higher resolution, but then to reduce them to a smaller file size?

I just got a digital camera and shot a lot of images at 3 meg. Now I want to put a lot of them on a website.

What is the easiest was to "batch" the process so that I don't have to reduce each one individually?

Ron

Try IrfanView, it can do batch and a lot of other things.

Steve is correct and Irfan View is a great free program.Some Photo Shop users may not know it, but under "File" click "Automate" then click on Web Photo Gallery.

As Steve suggested, try Irfanview. It'sfree.

Make sure you download the free plug-in's, too.

Here are some instructions for using it given by forum member Slipe in another thread (scroll down in the thread, and you'll see his post):

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...amp;forum_id=2

"You can batch resize with Irfanview. Start with File>Thumbnails and it will make thumbnails of the whole folder. In the thumbnail view select the images you want to resize by holding the Ctrl key while you select them. Or just go Options>Select all. Right click on any highlighted thumbnail and "Start batch dialog with selected thumbs". You can resize the whole folder and store it in a different place so you don't destroy your originals. I have some pretty sophisticated graphics software but prefer Irfanview for that sort of thing."

If you have photoshop, you can resize one picture whilst recording it as an action, save that action, and then use the recorded action for all your web pics for ever and ever amen!
