Hi I'm looking for a good programm (PC) for batch resizing pictures.

Best would be if I could use PSD as source file and could do two things at once (one conversion to jpg with a specific filename prefix without resizing and one conversion to jpeg with another prefix with resizing) Also it would be great if I could give it as a parameter a specific pixelcount that no side should be bigger as after resizing (so it can do landscape and portrait as once).

I think this might do what you want as well as a variety of other things. I just downloaded it and haven't had a chance to really explore it.


I also have a couple other possibilities as well as Photoshop Elements 2.

for batch work, including:

- conversions between 87 formats, including PSD, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, Postscript
- resizings
- "proof sheets" (montage of thumbnails) with file names
- inumerable other tasks

you might find ImageMagick useful. It is free and runs under

Windows '95 and later ('95, '98, ME, NT 4.0, 2000, and XP)
Macintosh (MacOS 9 and 10)


For batch conversions of raw formats, dcraw might be useful. Written byDavid Coffin, dcraw supports more than 50 different camera models including the S40, and may be found at
