Batch Image Resize


I have about 30 photos that i need to resize everyday. They are all from the same camera and are about 3000px wide.

I need to resize all of these to 870px wide. I am currently opening up each one and resizing them as i go, but is time consuming.

Can anyone recommend a good way to batch resize all of these.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Photoshop has a batch action.  In CS2 File->Automate->Batch.
In later versions I'm sure it is still there.
You just create an action to do what you want to do, then from the aforementioned menu choices, choose the current folder set params and action and new folder.
If you've got a Mac, I've used GraphicConverter before (http://www.lemkesoft.de/en/products/graphicconverter/download/) though if you already have Photoshop, you can use the batch option like SStory suggested.

I use VSO, Highlight all images I want to resize and then rightclick them click on VSO then set my resolution and quality etc, using the settings in my screenshot they are halved in size without losing quality.
Works very quickly, I just used a few for example.
As you see the new modified have the size written in the name so you can easily differentiate, I cut the one's still highlighted and move to new folder
I also use Lancoz slower better quality. Test out the resolution and quality, it will remember this settings
VSO  image resizer
Install the free Image Processor Pro which is way better that the image processor included in photoshop itself
(Watch the Video)

Then go to ....
File > Automate > Image Processor Pro

Set your source and destination folders.
Choose your new photo size (over on the right).
Choose whether you want to automatically rename your processed photos.
Then RUN

If you ever need multiple sizes at the same time, this is ideal (e.g. Thumbnails as well as 870px).

If you have already created and saved a Photoshop action to resize your photos you can choose to run that action
instead of directly letting Image Processor Pro do the resizing.

Remember to save the above Image Processor Pro settings for future use.
You can reload them when necessary.

If you are a regular photoshop user this should be the best solution for you.
