Batch Process Large to Small Images

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Tavish Muldoon, Dec 23, 2003.

  1. Hello,

    I have been tasked to take a bunch of large images (1 MB) and reduce
    them down to about 50-100kb. All are jpegs.

    Does either paintshop pro or photoshop do this?

    Right now, I only have Photoshop 5.0 - old!

    Is there another simpler freeware/shareware program that will do what
    I am asking?

    Would someone be able to point me to a link or site of how to do this
    on Photoshop or PaintShop Pro? (Me thinks it will to be too expensive
    to upgrapde my PS - so I might check out Paintshop pro...but it has to
    batch!)

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks all!

    Tmuld.

    You could try Irfanview
    Files>Batch conversion
    Tick the advanced options box and reduce the quality

    The easiest way might be to download a little freebie called Irfanview (do a
    search). You can set it up to do batch resizes fairly easily although you
    might have to target a percentage rather that a final file size. Find Batch
    Conversion in the menus and then look for the Advanced options.

    I beg to differ....even 5.0 had the web gallery feature. Use that to resize your images.
