Photoshop CS2 and later has a built-in script that can process many pictures at once.
If you have decided on a fixed size for the web (e.g. 600 pixels max), copy all your images in one folder (e.g. Originals), make a second folder for the resized images (e.g. Resized)
File --> Scripts --> Image Processor
1. Select images to process
- Select Folder (--> Originals)
2. Select location to save processed images (--> Resized)
3. File Type
- save as JPEG
- Quality (e.g. 9, depends on your file size/load time vs quality requirements)
- Resize to Fit:
W: 600, H: 600 (it will keep the proportions and orientation - a 1200w x 900h image will be resized to 600w x 450h, a 900w x 1200h will be resized to 450w x 600h)
Optionally, if you prefer all images to be 600px wide (e.g. using the example above, 600 x 450 and 600 x 800,) set W: 600, H: 10000 (some larger than life number for height)
- Convert profile to sRGB - turn this setting on
4. Click Run and go make yourself a sandwich, it may take a while for PS to open each image from the Originals folder, resize and save in the Rezised folder.
