    I think you might want to look into imagemagik a very powerful command line and GUI image tool (well it is actualy a colection of tools...).

    The command
    Code:
    convert -geometry 200x200 some_big_pic.jpg some_small_pic.jpg
    this command just rescales the big picture to 200x200px.

    Though this is not batch converting, I know it is possible (though not sure how). Maybe somthing like:
    Code:
    convert -geometry 200x200 *.jpg *_small.jpg
    but I' not sure so I'd advise testing it out.

    If you want to test Dylunio's command, just make a new folder copy all the pics to that folder,, play with the new folder till you get the command right.
