Question Any Quick Way To Reduce Image Size On P.s ????

I have hundreds of photos that i want to reduce the image size then quality of. Currently i use photoshop and GO IMAGE SIZE ------> THEN SAVE AS -----> THEN JPEG etc etc.

Sorry Botch, this is the only way I know how too.

It's just going to be a long day for you at the keyboard!

Re: Any Quick Way To Reduce Image Size On P.s ????

could find an automatic thumbnailer with which you can set a size, point it to the directory and let it rip, I used to have one but have lost it (and can't remember the name) will do a search see if i can find something

look at this link here http://download.com.com/3120-20-0.ht...search=+Go%21+ , they all seem to be free to try, so download one and give it a go

do you use XP? Try this free resizer here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/p.../powertoys.asp
right click jpg and select resize, its that simple.


Photoshop allows you to do batch resizing and quality would be better

Why not record the process as an Action and then run the Action as a Batch to process the whole folder of photos.....

Re: Any Quick Way To Reduce Image Size On P.s ????

To set the Action,
Open one of the files you wish to alter, click on the Record button in the Actions palette then do whatever you need to do: Resize/Resolution etc. then do a save as... and change the file type to JPEG from the pull down menu and click OK.
Now press Stop in the Actions palette.
Depending on what version of Photoshop you are using (version 7?), go to the File menu and select Automate, then Batch and select the Action that you used on your first file, then select the folder containing the images you want to convert and the destination of the converted files and click OK - then go and have a cold drink and presto - all the time consuming work is done!!!! (Well hopefully, unless I have left something out ;-) ).
