    I have a bunch of screenshots from a game and they are all over 2 megs each (.bmp) I need a prog. that can make them all smaller (convert them to .jpg maybe) all at once, I don't want to open them all individually as that would be very, very, tedious.

    There's a cool program I have for XP, that shows up on the right click menu. You can select multiple pictures and right click to reszie them to a number of different sizes.

    Go to http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx and on the right hand side, download Image Resizer. Just remeber it's only going to be on the right click menu.

    Fucking cool.. Glad this was brought up.

    I have my digicam set to take pictures at highest and best resolution possible... but its a bitch when I copy them off of the CF card and then I have to resize them.. (sometimes 100-200 pictures at 800-1000mb a piece and 27" by 15" or whatever it is)... and its a bitch.

    But this makes life SOO much easier..
