If you've got a whole pile of pictures to resize, you certainly don't want to do them one at a time. A batch tool that lets you manipulate a bunch of images at one time is the order of the day here.

Picture Resizer 2.0 allows you to do batch resizing of JPEG images. To accomplish this, you just drag your images—whether individual pictures or whole directories full of JPEGs—and drop them on the executable's icon. It will automatically resize your images and drop them back into the folders where they live. The resized item will have a new name, based on the original, that will let you know which is which.

Configuration of this tool is a little complicated. Since you literally just drag and drop, there is no real GUI here to interact with the app. Instead, you rename the executable itself, and in that new name, you will give it configuration instructions. If, for example, you want to resize images to 200 pixels rather than the default 400 pixel size, you rename the executable from PhotoResize400.exe to PhotoResize200.exe. What to handle folders? Change it to PhotoResize400R.exe. There is an add-on, PhotoResize Options, available on the site to help overcome this, um, unique way of configuring the tool.

Picture Resizer 2.0 is a Windows app. It requires Windows 98 or later, and is also available in a 64-bit version.
