Converting images for viewing on TV

    I use Photoshop CS3.

    I have approximately 500 jpeg images in color profile Adobe RGB (1998), at
    maximum out-of-camera resolution (3888x2592) and file sizes from 2.5 to
    I now want to show these images on my old Sony TV (tube type, not latest
    high definition TV) using my Sony DVD player. The DVD player will only
    accept jpegs burnt to a CD (not a DVD).

    I firstly need to convert the images to sRGB as this is preferred for
    viewing colors on TVs.
    I also want to change the resolution of each image to that of the TV, which
    I believe is 640 x 480.
    This should also reduce the file size which in turn will allow the images to
    appear more quickly on the TV.

    The best way I see to do this is with Photoshop's batch mode but would like
    to know if and how all the above conversions can be done at once and without
    effecting the original image files. I believe there is a function in PS for
    fitting the image to certain sizes as well.

    Any feedback on undertaking this process, as efficiently as possible, would
    be greatly appreciated.

  2. There should be enough options for you through File->Scripts->Image

    You could probably do what I just did with mp3 conversions.

    Check out MeGUI video converter and see if it does what you need. If
    not, there must also be similar programs.

    The audio converter I used was pretty fast, did an excellent job, took
    a folder full of mixed file extensions and converted them all to mp3s.
