Subject: Re: gimp use
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.
yes gwenview works very well for batch resizing!
