    I've been using google's picasa to sort my 2000 pictures into their
    respective folders.

    I am now trying to find a program that allows simple editing of pics
    (cropping, rotating, level correction). If I could find something that
    has the exact facilities of picasa but in then actually *saved* the
    image you'd cropped or added highlight to, to the same folder, same file
    name, it would be great.

    I don't want to have to go into photoshop, open an image, adjust levels,
    save, save as low/medium/high, replace, etc - I probably have 1000 or
    more images to edit.

    Anyone?

    Many programs do batch processing, including Photoshop. On the mac I use Graphic Converter. On
    the PC I think PaintShop Pro will do it too, but I think for 30 days only, then you need to buy
    it.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if you could find Gimp scripts that do batch processing as well.

    There's plenty of choice for this sort of thing, from free to charge.

    I use two - Compupic Pro : http://www.photodex.com

    and

    Fotostation - www.fotostation.com

    The latter is what I use at work, though it's the 'pro' version which
    isn't cheap, as it's linkable to a serious database where we store
    100,000 plus images which are instantly searchable.

    You might like to have a look at:-

    http://www.faststone.org.

    I downloaded that out of interest and it does a hell of a lot for free.

  6. IrfanView is free and rightly popular.
