Hello all,

I realize this is the Photoshop forum, but there is no PhotoPaint forum, and the two are often very similar in commands.

I'd like to batch-process some image files to resize them.   I have Phtotpaint 8.  Worse - it's in French!

Could someone please walk me through it?

Thanks.

If you're not familiar with the editor, you can use the recorder to record the script.

Write back if you really want the step-by-step for Photopaint.  But I think you won't need it if you just download the freeware Irfanview, and use the Batch processing fuction to resize an entire folder of images in only a few clicks.  No script editing needed.  Irfanview long ago supplanted the heavy-duty graphics software for all my non-"creative" graphics tasks like cropping, resizing, rotating, etc.

While j3one's answer replied directly to the question posed, AntonioP's really did provide the best solution outside the box.  I donwloaded IrfanView - quick to download, flawless install, intuitive batch resizing - I completed a 50-image resize batch in about 5 minutes starting from zero knowledge of the software, where it would have taken me over an hour to do each image by hand in Corel.  Love it.  thanks.

Sometimes I feel like I should get a salary for how often I recommend Irfanview, but it just really is *that* great a program for the tasks it targets.  Glad it worked for you.
