"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com/ ) is a free software available from Google. It will allow you resize multiple photos at a time.

There are multiple options available:

- Resizing by Exporting: This creates copies of orginal photos resized based on your specifications.

- Resizing by Email: If you need to email photos, this option is best. It automatically resizes photos and also sends it to your contacts in one step. Definitely a time saver.

Good Luck!

I use VSO image resizer  this is if you have windows 7
as the image resizer in xp does not run in windows 7
Just highlight your images in the folder, ( not too many) then r/click them and click on VSO, you can choose your output size and quality, I use Lancos, it will rename them so you can tell them apart from the originals if you choose to save them to the same directory as the originals, the original swill still be highlighted cut them and put into a new folder marked originals
now you have another to choose from :P
cheers
