I will be importing around 5,000 picture galleries with around 15 images in each gallery. Galleries were started in 2008 and they get added until now, but the images there don't have the same parameters / sizes. Some of them are ok for a website, and some of them would need to be compressed for less bandwidth usage over time. The good ones are like 150KB, and the other ones go to like 500KB so the difference is big. This is a total of around 75,000 images, so this disk space adds up.
I am familiar with Linux and I can import it to the server with a script that I am using and try to do it with Imagemagic on there, but I've never tried it yet. I am wondering if there is any better way of doing it, and this would be on Windows probably. I can buy a good program for downloading images from galleries to separate folders from a cvs list, and then I could go over them, and compress whatever would be needed on Windows in some way.
I am not sure what would be the best way to do it... Linux can be good, but I can get better results with some Windows solution too...
