    Hi,
    I have a website that has 600 or so members. I wanted to take pictures of each member and put them on their profile on the website. but my problem is: Is there a free program that allows me to quickly reduce all the photos to a specific resolution and size? and would allow me to crop the photograph? I would like for it to be able to convert them all at once or close to that. It is a big project, and I was hoping to make it as easy as possible.

    Things like photoshop and macromedia fireworks have will perform "batch" jobs like this.
    I don't know of any freeware that will do it though.. (hopefully someone else does.. :) )

    ACDSee is awesome with batch resizes, rotates and such... There is a demo version. www.acdsystems.com

    One of the best imaging programs IMO

    I know PaintShop Pro does this as a batch job.

    For a free alternative, have your tried using the Microsoft Image Resizer Powertoy?
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp

    The HTML Slide Show generator powertoy also creates thumbnails of multiple images automatically.

    Give both of them a try, and see if they do the job for you.

    the powertoy.. just right click an image (or load of images) then you can see a new "resize images" option. :)
