Optimize GAL Photos from AD using Script

Ok so I have a folder with all my photos that I want to add to AD and Outlook to appear on emails.  I know I have to optimize each photo to be less than 100x100.  I found a free tool ImageMagik and a PS1 to use although Im unsure what I change in the PS1 to get it to work:

My folder is C:\security photos\atlanta
The new pics cna be written to folder:  C:\ad photos\atlanta


Here is the PS1 where do I change the input and output folders to the above to get this to work?  Thanks

param($InputFolder,$OutputFolder,$Quality);
# GALBatchConvert.ps1
# Use to convert large numbers of contact pictures to optimised 96x96 GAL photos
#
# Steve Goodman
if (!$InputFolder -or !$InputFolder)
{
    throw "InputFolder and OutputFolder parameters are mandatory";
}
if (!(Test-Path $InputFolder))
{
    throw "InputFolder not found";
}
if (!(Test-Path $OutputFolder))
{
    throw "OutputFolder not found";
}
$FullOutputFolderPath = (Get-Item $OutputFolder).FullName
if (!$Quality)
{
    $Quality = 50;
}
$Items = Get-ChildItem $InputFolder
if ($Items.Count -eq 0)
{
    throw "No items in folder"
}
[array]$ValidExt=".jpg",".jpeg",".bmp",".tif",".tiff",".gif",".png"
foreach ($Item in $Items)
{
    if ($ValidExt -contains $Item.Extension)
    {
        Write-Output "Converting $($Item.FullName)"
        .\convert.exe -quality $Quality -depth 8 -strip -thumbnail 96x96^ -gravity Center -crop 96x96+0+0 $Item.FullName "$($FullOutputFolderPath)\$($Item.BaseName).jpg"
    }
}

You're supposed to pass them into the script as arguments (the param block dictates this).

That is, if you had the above saved as fix-pictures.ps1, you'd run:
c:\somewhere\fix-pictures.ps1 -InputFolder "C:\Source" -OutputFolder "C:\Destination"

Open in new window

Quality is set to 50 if you don't set it to something else. If you needed to change that too it would become:
c:\somewhere\fix-pictures.ps1 -InputFolder "C:\Source" -OutputFolder "C:\Destination" -Quality 75

Open in new window

Finally, if PowerShell complains about not being able to execute unsigned code, you should review "Get-Help about_Code_Signing" then consider running:
Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

Open in new window

Cheers,

Chris
