View Full Version : Bulk photo compression

09-05-2016, 11:51 PM
Hi all,
I'd like to find a program to compress my digital photo library so i can load them all to my tablet. Trouble is all the programs I've looked at can only do one folder at a time, is there a program i can use to compress all my photos in at once? Really want to maintain the folder structure as well....

Thanks for any guidance.

ES File Explorer - winzip - rar for android - etc

I'm thinking you mean to resize the images to make the files smaller as opposed to file compression Like bevy is suggesting. Irfanview has a batch conversion tool that might do it, but I haven't used it in ages and don't recall exactly how it works. It's free anyway and a good image viewer with a few other features.

Irfanview does do this easily as a batch file. Easy to work out once you go into the batch editor.

I've used Irfanview years ago...... Will give it a try again.

I also support the Zip file option.

Keep in mind, if the images are in jpg format, then they've already had some compression, and you won't achieve much more.

Actually if you Zip jpg files they tend to get bigger. The best way to fit them on the tablet is to resize the images, Zipping won't achieve anything.

Faststone is also quite easy for batch file resizing ... http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm
