Howdy Experts!

I have 300+ GIF files that need to be reduced to 16 colors.  Is there some program I can get that will do a batch process like that for me?  Also, the files are in different sub folders under a main folder, so it would need to be able to read into sub folders.

Thanks!

Sure, photoshop. You create an action that does the conversion, then use the Batch function to apply that action to a directory of images.

When you include "Save For Web" in your action, decrease the colors.
