Photoshop anyone?

Just a random question. I would like to downsize some images so I can actually put them up on the boards. If anyone has a decent image editing program, and wouldn't mind resizing said images, it would be greatly appreciated.

If you have microsoft paint, you can adjust the images under the skew option.

I've got a batch file I wrote that leverages Irfanview.........1 or 1,000 images in a couple of seconds.

Let me know if you still need a hand.

Go here:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx

Look on the right... download "image resizer".

Once you install it.. all you have to do it right-click on as many photos as you want, pick a size... then it drops new resized photos in the same directory.

Quickest way to do it.

If you use photobucket as a host, it automatically resizes your pics to a forum friendly size when you upload them.

Irfanview:
GREAT little FREE editor, with some excellent features.
Completely scriptable.....so it's a must-have for anyone who takes lots of pictures!

http://www.irfanview.com/


Quick sample of the command line syntax for anyone who's interested.
(It was VERY easy to build some nifty logic around this)

C:\Program Files\IrfanView\i_view32.exe MyPicture.jpg /resample=(1024,1024) /aspectratio /convert=MyNewPicture.jpg /jpgq=100 /silent
About 10 lines of simple batch file and you can resize and set jpg compression on hundreds of pictures in seconds.

I would have to second Kindred's recommendation of IrfanView. I switched from ACDSee a few years ago and haven't looked back.
