    How to process 100+ photos?

    Hi -

    My neighborhood pool club would like to create an online directory of members showing names, addresses and a photo.

    I've written a PHP script to allow members to register and upload an image of themsleves... but now I have over 100 images (jpegs) of various sizes (100KB - 5MB) with some being in portrait layout and some being in landscape layout.

    The thought of manually resizing and optimizing all of these photos for a website makes me... shiver.

    I'm betting there's a way to automate resizing and optimization of each photo and I bet someone here can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks!

    Saratoga Sam

    there are various options. an application aimed to accomplish that task, as 6StringGeek mentioned. if you have PhotoShop, or a similar application, you can use or create a batch to be applied on a directory. or you can even write a script for PhotoShop so you can detect the orientation. another solution is PHP. if you are very well proficient in the language, you can write a script that use the image library bundled in PHP to resize and optimize images on a directory.

    That's very helpful. I will do some additional research on your recommendations.

    Easiest (and cheapest) is to download IrfanView - it's got a really good batch processing function. Though as Zerokilled says you'd probably be better off with a PHP script if your site is going to be large.
    Download free Irfanview here...
