    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 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.

          Hi ray12,
          What did you write in the cover letter if you weren't asking for an internship until the end? Just about learning from the company?

          I always expect some form of crit after sending a proof to a client. When there is no critique, I am concerned because I fear the client hasn't looked at the proof properly.

          Studies are a big investment in time and money. I wouldn't hire a designer that refused to invest in themselves to learn the basics.
