as stated there is a set of tools that might do a more straightforward
job for resizing a bunch of pictures. With Gimp however you can install
the "gimp-plugin-registry" package, which will give you access under the
"filters > Batch" menu to a batch processing tool, which includes
resizing/cropping facilities for a bunch of files. You will have to set
up a few options, so it will take time and it's not worth bothering if
you don't have many pictures to process (160 should qualify...).
If you want to work from a graphical user interface, you can also use
most pictures manager program like Digikam or Gwenview, they usually
include an easy to use resizing tool.
