This is an identical region in all cases.  So I want to script it.

So, 2 questions:
A) What's the best tool for the job?  Gimp, irfanview, or something else?
B) Is there a script already in existence where I can just change the

*IF* you are into perl, then consider perlmagick.
There are examples under the /usr/share/doc/perlmagick/examples/demo/

He might consider using "Simple Image Reducer" which is in the repos. You don't have to kill a chicken (ala Computer Voodoo) to use it. I use it on collections of photos to get them all to a smaller and even aspect ratio for use on our webpages. I just click and import all of the images I want, to select and set them all to one size. Seconds later, they are all done and MUCH smaller in file size. Perfect for webpage use. I'm an idiot and it "just works for me". :) Ric
