View Full Version : tiff to jpeg - batch conversions?

03-03-2005, 01:55 PM
Hi Guys,
I have a pile of (about 150) photos scanned to a pretty high res.
Each is saved in a Tiff file of about 74mb (74,000kb).
I want to convert them to jpeg format, but am daunted by the thought of having to open each one separately and resave it (as jpg).
Is there some batch, or automated way, or software, that will do this for me while I do something else?

This (http://www.irfanview.com/) should do what you want.
I have used it before to resize a batch of photos that were to big to email.
Once installed just open it and go to File - Batch Conversion/Rename.

I use JPEG Wizard (http://www.pegasusimaging.com/jpegwizard.htm)

For Linux users, the convert command-line utility will do this. Very small, very fast, lots of options and handles, just

convert [-options] /inputdirectory/*.tiff /outputdirectory/*.jpeg.

See man convert.

you still might need a app to resize them, they could still be huge, Powertoys Xp has a good resizing tool
