I just made a nice find in FastStone Photo Resizer Version 2.4. None of my image editing applications seemed to do a batch resize fast and easy so I went looking and found this.
It’s a free download and is so easy. You just set the destination folder, rename, and the percent of original. This is perfect for digital camera users who want to upload to the likes of Flickr using a free account. They only allow a certain usage per month and with lower file sizes you can upload more photos.
I set the FastStone Resizer to 71% and the images look great, and I still have the originals if more detail work is later needed.
