You can do it with most editors, such as adobe photoshop or macromedia fireworks.
I like the program "PixResizer", you can resize single as well as multiple files. You can also change the file format while resizing them.
Here's the Download Link (Freeware): http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm

Enjoy!

Irfan View does that and more. It's free.

l vote for infranview. l use it for all my minor image needs (everything that is a waste to load PS for Neutral) http://www.kulsar.co.uk/downloads.php?download=Infranview
It can batch the images making them a smaller file size (and barely noticeable decrease in file quality, if any at all, and the file size is usually less less than half), it can resize as many as you want at once, grayscale them, do just about anything like that. l have it completely replacing whatever windows uses to view images by default. It runs smoothly every time, even with a maxed out CPU it still ran smooth Neutral.

I just tested this and worked:

First put the images in a folder
Create a destination folder
Open an arbitrary image
Create an action by selecting actions, clicking at the new action icon, naming it, clicking the record icon and doing as if the image was going to be resized and saved in the particular folder
Stop the recording (using the stop icon)
Now you can automate by doing File-Automate-Batch, choosing the source and destination folders, and choosing the right action

The good news is that you can do a lot more like framing the pictures, applying effects and so on....

Neutral that is unnecessarily complicated for such an easy job Neutral
1. open InfranView
2. Press "B"
3. Add images
4. Change size through options, and configure where you want it to save new images whatever
5. Press "Start"

Neutral mine is easier, this is for InfranView by the way Neutral

I have to agree Ifranview is the best one I've found. Its simple and powerful photo viewer/editor. Bonus its free and has tons of nice plugins to help you out even further.

Thats for all your surgestions I will try afew out over the weekend

Use irfan view. It is the best for these small image related tasks.
From file menu select Batch Conversion/Rename.
Select Batch COnversion - Rename result files.
Now click on set advanced options and enter the new file size (you can enter it in pixels or as a % of original file size).

you can always rely upon Photoshop

Just select File
and then Batch processing in Import section perhaps
or somwhere in same menu

Then u can select the type of job which you want to automate

Select the Resize or History selection

and then Import folder
and destination folder

Naming scheme of files

and press automate
and the work is done

Irfra View is a good choice and I had been using it for quite a while. It had lots of plugins which is useful, and can even read mp3 files. If batch resizing is what you are looking for, do not hestitate, go for IrfanView.(oops, do I sound like a saleman? lol)

I tested some programs for resizing images and I think the best program for resizing images is AcdSee. It is converting images with light speed and you have a lot of options to choose. Very good program!
