Batch Photo Resizing

This is how I want picture resizing to work: Drag pictures or a folder onto an executable icon, that exe should then transcode those photos (recursively exploring sub-folders) to a Facebook / CD-RW friendly 1 megapixel image.

The Google brought me this app: Picture Resizer 4.0. PR4 works just like I've outlined above! Configuration is done by renaming the executable (appending options to the end of it). The site has a "Renaming Wizard" to help you out with this:

Shown are the options I used, which gave me images in the kB's rather than the MB's. Who needs all those pixels anyway?

Picture Resizer 4.0. Googling so you don't have to.

  1. Very nice Paul. We need to do this for video. Take any format of video and transcode it to playback on all of our devices.
