    I'll second the command-line suggestion. If I had to do this I'd write a little script to access the ImageMagick library from Python or PHP or Perl.

      The images are all different sizes. BinaryMark (Batch Image Resizer) did offer to add this feature for $270 ($100 custom work + $170 software license). Although I appreciate their offer, I'm not interested in funding their development to enhance their products features. I noticed their app uses a progress bar for each image and other things that surely slow down the processing for batches.

      I posted a project at elance.com to build an app that can do this. Most of the bids are around $40-$60. This simple app will operate much faster, include a GUI, and a progress counter (235/16,896). I will offer this tiny app for $3,695.75 per license to recoup my aggravation expenses and time invested looking for a solution.

      I'm not a CMD line guy, I'm not a developer...why I use elance very often.

      Thanks everyone. This subject is closed - no current apps can perform this without first resizing all images.

        Why would this be a problem? I'd rather make two passes than commission a custom one-shot utility. Simple is good.

        P.S.: My advice is yours for a mere $307.54 per post to recoup aggravation and time in writing them. :-} Payable in precious metals, gemstones, or fine motoring collectibles.
