Resizing Multiple Images?

hello all,

i want to resize multiple images at once (huge digicam pics). paint shop pro has a function called 'resize' where you can make a picture xx% of the original. you have to do that one pic at a time. they have something called 'batch conversion', but that just compresses multiple images (leaves it the same huge size (though lowers the file size) , but pixelates it more).

is there anything out there that will take a folder of pics and resize them to a percentage of the original?

There's a PowerToy for XP that "sorta" does that.

download irfanview, and it's working great! thanks!

along the same lines (sorta) - is there any way to batch 'watermark' pictures? i'm looking to add a little id to the bottom corner of each pic, and was wondering if there was a quicker way of doing it. TIA.

That doesn't sound as easy to come up with a recommendation..... sorry.

I'm guessing this doesn't help, but it's easy with PhotoShop. Define an action to do what you want, then just Batch it.

ACDSee 4.0 does a great job of batch resizing.

Their Arles Image Webpage Generator does quite a bit - resize pictures, creates thumbnails, adds watermarks (or text), etc.

I highly recommend it.
