    Hi there,
    Is there a Programm that could actually resize a big ammount of pictures all to the same size somewhere ?

    I usually use irfanview and I noticed even without resizing the way to big pictures the size changes from 7MB to 1,3MB when I just save the pics ...
    Currently because the pics are so big my Folder is about 14GB (~2300 pictures from my last holliday) and doing it all one by one would take the whole day oO

    Some people asked me if I could give them my pictures but with 14GB you don't just send them via mail ... but if i could make them about 1/7 the size it would be only 2-3 GB and that could be burned on DVD without a problem ^^

    I recommend FastStone.
    It's freeware and it works great.

    I think the latest version of Picasa from Google can do what you want, but I am not sure.

    I do know that Picasa can post them to some sort of Google+ sharing web site for pictures and that might be something to consider?

    Well, how are you saving them? A 24-bit PNG is going to take up more space than an 8-bit PNG but have access to more colors, a JPEG can be saved with varying quality levels, etc.

    IrfanView does that. Try opening the IrfanView - Thumbnails program. Find your pic, then go to File > Start batch dialog with selected files... and check the Advanced options. Then click Advanced and adjust the settings to your liking. Then click Start Batch and wait :)
    This is the quickest method, since you dont have to install anything else... but you may find other programs prettier, interface-wise.

    EDIT... oh, it seems you had already resized them XD I guess I was late.
