    I'm thinking of uploading a series of stag do pictures for public perusal at FlickR, question is - how can I compress 200mb worth of images to 20mb to meet the bandwidth limits of my free FlickR account?

    Rather than laboriously resize individually every image using Image Ready is there a way to batch process say a 100 odd images in a few steps? perhaps there is a good utility I'm unaware of.

    any help much appreciated

    Thanks

    Irfanview does a batch conversion.

    I would recomend ImageWalker for anything you plan to do with batches of images (including making them into a web page).

    worked a treat - what a powerful and user friendly little utility - really like its memory management over explorer's - worth checking out by all as has many applications, and much less cumbersome than some commercial packages

    For some variety, ImageMagick Studio is another good one... and free. It's entirely command-line, so just a matter of making the batch file.

    I just pay a student to do it manually whilst saying I will pay them 'eventually'. :D
