Digital Camera - Convert large pictures to small to send via email

Does anyone know if there is a good software program out there that will enable me to convert a mass amount of pictures taken from my digital camera from 3MB per photo to a smaller file size to send over email?  Currently I am opening each photo in Photoshop and changing the imiage quality from 300dpi to 72dpi.  This process takes a long time and I have 100's of photos I would like to convert.  It would be great if there was a program that could take a folder of 200+ pictures and convert all of them from 300dpi to 72dpi.  THANKS!!

Microsoft Picture Resizer will do that, you select all the images you want to resize, right click on them select Picture Resizer. Then, you enter the width/height info you want the pictures to be resized to and go.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

zip them up reduces the size a bit and makes sure they are sent speedily.

also if you don't have a program like photoshop to resize them you might use this:

good luck and let us know how it goes.

Hey cgriffith:

actually, IrfanView is the best way to go. it supports batch processing and has *much* better resampling filters than microsoft picture resizer...

but for the zipping, use 7-zip! It's free, opensource, fast and has better compression than most of the other tools.

ehm, thanks for the points, but maybe you should have given the points to thephalanx and give him a grade A instead. i have nothing against points, but consider giving the points to the person who actually posted the answer next time, please...
