Batch resizing photos ONLY if bigger

Hello

I have hundreds of image files that I need to resize to 200 pixels tall (and of course constrain the width proportionally.)

However if they are already LESS than 200 pixels high I don't want them touched.

I usually use Faststone image for these things, but I don't see an option to ignore images that are less than a certain height.

I don't want to make, for example, a 150 height image to be 200 pixels tall.  I need the program (i.e. photoshop) or utility to ignore anything below the height that I have set.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

you might want to take a look at irfanview they have a batch conversion function that will allow you to resize but ignore smaller.

Thanks,  xxdcmast,

 irfanview worked perfectly.  Lots of options and worked great and FAST -- over 3,000 images resized in just a few minutes.
