And the best part..... It's free. :) It has many other features as well. Irfanview is one of the best image utility programs around. For basic image manipulation that most of the population is doing it's really all that is needed.
you can set up a batch very easily and set the resize to a max width and/or height, thus all your pics of whatever size will be resized to the same height or width.
there is a free 30 trial, i don't know if it's been updated recently but my copy is several years old and works like a dream.
imho the compression is better than photoshop/image ready and easier to use. eg better images with smaller file size.
I use it and I consider it the best... and I have tried quite few.
The nice thing is that it offer high quality resamplers (including Mitchel and B-Spline).
Compared with Irfan, where you have to do a lot of settings before resizing the images, in this tool you just need to click 2 buttons and you are ready to go.

This step is not necessary anymore :)
The program is very fast :)
require up to 18 steps to do this hilarious simple job
The first time yes. You need to create an action. After that it's a cinch.
1. Navigate to Batch
2. Choose Action & folder
3. Click go.
Creating the action yourself is advantageous over more basic batching tools because you can stipulate many additional parameters.
The images quality and compression is not just miles ahead of most other things, but it also allows you to do basically anything else you are able to do in photoshop and add that to the batch.
