    Hello
    I am working on my site and spend hours sizing pics. Does anyone know of a way to size more than one at a time? I use Photobie, ACDC and PhotoImpressions.
    Thanks

    None that i've used, altho im sure a google might pick it up. There was a "Best Freeware" torrent floating around a while back but i dont have the link anymore :( But that did have a pretty goods imaging program on it

    Might be worth running into a net cafe with photoshop aswell, to save ya the bother :p

    I replaced ACDsee with the FREEWARE Irfanview a long time ago... and have never looked back.
    http://www.irfanview.com/
    It has a very powerful Batch processor ... sounds like just what you need.

    Irfanview does so much .. It's a little easy to goof up while you're learning the batch tools.
    I suggest ... always work on copies first ... and keep the originals in safe keeping.

    You probably don't need to download the "all Plugins" .. The little ~1MB program will be more than enough.

    Irfanview is very popular here at TSG .. It you have any questions .. Just holler.

    Which version of ACDsee do you have?
    Version 8 can resize in batches.
    Highlight the images and select batch resize from the tools menu.

    Place the files you wish to resize in a folder. Select one of the pictures in the folder in windows and right click...select Open with ACDSee. Switch to the Photo Manager.

    Click Help->Contents. Select the Index tab and type "resize" for complete batch resizing instructions.

    I'm using ACDSee 9 so, if you are using a different version, your procedure may be slightly different.

    According to the Chatter I read on the Internet ... ACDSee, version 3, was the last good one.
    After that .. It became so Bloated that it was slow and difficult to use.

    See here for some initial Irfanview setup suggestions....

    Holler if you have any Questions ... Irfanview is very popular here at atSG
