    Is there a way in Photoshop or any other program to change the image size and resolution to a folder that has many jpegs images in it? Otherwise, I will have to change the size and resolution to about 250 images. If Photoshop won't do it is there another program that will??

    Thanks, :confused:

    Thanks Neon,
    I saw how you can resize one image but not a whole folder. I could only select resampling if I opened up a picture. I went to where I thought you were saying image>resize/resample but it is greyed out until I open an image. Once I open a image I could select the resize/resample and then I could change that image. How do I go about resizing the entire folder.

    Thanks so much for your quick response!
    Oh, Happy Turkey Day!!!!!

    File - Batch Conversion - add all the image file in the folder by selecting all the files (not the folder) and Add, select "use advanced options", "set advanced option" Resize ...

    Put all the images in the "input files" section. Under "set advanced options" you can change many settings.
    Also, i'd recommend you leave the original files intact, and create a new folder for all the processed images to go into during the conversion.

    Another option.

    If you happen to have Windows XP and just want to easily resize a few images there is a small program you can download.

    Go here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

    You will find "ImageResizer.exe" down on the right hand side of the page.

    This program when installed adds a very good basic image resize feature to your right click. Then all you have to do is pick one of a few size options it gives you. It keeps your origional file as it was and creates a smaller version with (small) added to the name.

    Not sure what algorithm this uses though (probably Nearest Neighbour or Hermite as opposed to Lanczos etc), but I don't think that it'd be as good quality as iView. However, for small increments of resizing, or decreasing the size, it's a useful context menu option to have ^.^
