    Have you looked at ImageMagick? It is the backend to a lot of graphical applications and can be used to as a command line tool to script various functions such as resizing. In fact check out this tutorial :-

    Thanks!
    In the comments of this article somebody wrote about a plugin for Gimp which would be much easier for our users here in the office I'll keep you informed about the result.

    I'm not sure what distro you are using, but Imagemagick is a very commonly used package in Linux, so most distributions have a binary package ready to go in their repositories. It might be worth checking out.

    My distribution

    I am using Ubuntu,
    But I need a solution for users who are not comfortable with using command line... is there a graphical solution with Imagemagix ?
    Or I heard about the David's Batch Processor plugin for Gimp but I don't know how to compile a program... I am a bit lost... really need help

    I had a look into this for you again and there is a plugin for nautilus (if you are using Gnome) called nautilus-image-converter. It gives you a context menu so you can select multiple images and resize them. It gives you a few option like resolution and whether to create a copy of resize them in place.

    The good news is that this is actually using ImageMagick in the background and also that it is available in the Ubuntu repositories. If youare using KDE there are usually good servicemenus available on kde-look.org of which I'm sure many of them perform this function.

    Thanks a lot bigtomrodney,
    Nautilus image converter is exactly what I was looking for!
    It resizes, renames and respects the ratio in batch. People here are again productive!
    Once more thanks.
    I have on PC with KDE but I was not able to find any similar solution for kde if somebody knows one Id be thanksfull...

    Try one of these...

    *Photo resize KDE-Apps.org

    *resizePhotos KDE-Apps.org

    They're the same idea. In fact I think the nautilus plugin idea came from these.

    Photo resize: resizes only in fixed given size and it's too long and complicated to go and edit the file before any use...
    resizephotos: same problem
    Any other suggestions are welcome
    Thanks in advance
