Crunching jpgs

.. a one off job

Hi...

A new site has about 300 jpgs, mainly in slide shows. This could easily blow out to 450 plus. I have a faithful old jpg cruncher that handles one file at a time and the thought of manually crunching such a lot of files does not have me leaping about in eager anticipation.

This may well be the only time I ever need to handle this volume so I'm not keen on forking out serious dollars.

Anybody able to recommend a minimal cost tool that handles batch processing? Free would be good as I can't forward this on to a client.... cheap buggar, I know.

You might try out the new Paint Shop Pro 8 beta from Jasc - it is free (the beta, that is) and should do what you're looking for.

There may be other programs that require smaller downloads than PAint Shop Pro to do the same - perhaps others have recommendations.

Graphic Converter for Mac will do batch processing without a problem... it's shareware. If you're on PC, the PSP trial may be your best bet though.
