Resizing images... automatically?



The scenario: I have been taking for the last few days hundreds of photos for an online store that is to launch in a few weeks. I load all 400 or so of these photos onto the computer to find out that they are all at a resolution of 2048 pixels by 1536 pixels.

The predicament: These photos have to be on a website that can load quickly and efficiently.

The Question: Is there any program that will shrink these photos in physical size and file size automatically without me having to manually edit all 400 of them?

Thanks for your help, greatly appreciated,

Jake

Well, yeah, Photoshop. Should have that anyway if you are to be dealing with a website that is in need of photos. Just write an action that resizes, and saves as a JPEG. Then use Automate>Batch to apply that action to a whole folder of images. If youre using OS X you can use an applescript which is a free way to do it. If youre on a PC you can also use irfanview http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/13190
