Ok, our digital camera has taken about 400 pics, they're all about 500k each. But that's too big for them to be emailed....and there's too many pictures to manually adjust 'em via Photoshop......if I knew what I was doing I might speed up the process....

Is there anyway to "automatically" "batch-process" and shrink these pics down to ??K so that I can upload them onto a Yahoo! folder or email them?

Or a quicker way than manually via photoshop?

Thanks for >ANY< help!

I thought graphic converter could do "batch processing" but I have never been able to get it to work.

You could try adjusting the compression ratio of the jpgs and/or the resolution.

Make a Photoshop action that will resize and then optimise the images. Because the images are already compressed, chances are Stuffing them won't help much either.

OMG! You must have a truly screwed up cam. What exactly did it take pics of?
