I have a massive set of project folders in a directory that each contain subfolders with jpg images; the people that took the pictures at the time used high quality settings on the camera which makes these images quite big in size; I run a backup everynight of this directory and the resulting size of the backup is getting huge and takes an eternity to process. The images don't need to be as big as they are...
I was wondering if there was a software that could scan this directory and all subfolders and compress these images to half their size without my intervention or me having to process each folder one by one.
Most software requires you to specify where to save the images, which folder to compress, etc... But I would want the compressed image to replace the uncompressed one...
Anyone know if this is possible?
You can change the % and have them compressed to a different extent. You will lose image quality if you do, but you will do that if you resize as well.
