Running a photoshop action from the Windows Context Menu

Dear Experts:

I wonder whether the following is possible.

Right-clicking one or several TIFF-pictures in the Windows Explorer shows a context menu item such as 'Convert to JPG from TIFF'.

Clicking this context menu item runs a user-defined action converting the selected TIFF-graphic(s) into the JPEG Format (Quality 10, Convert Profile to sRGB).

I just would like to know whether this is feasible and who to turn to for this requirement.
It is a fee-based job of course.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Hmm, you can add new command for specific file types using regedit

now you need an application for command line conversion

irfan view does that
