Bulk reduction of jpg image file size

Question: Bulk reduction of jpg image file size

Does anyone know of an app in which you can automatically reduce the file size of, say, 30 images all in one go rather than having to reduce each one separately?I've quite a few images which I want to put into a photo gallery. The first one I looked at was over 1 MB which I'm sure is too big for a web page!

I have a 16 mg image, 4500x3000. I resized all the way down to 100x100 and the file size won't change from 12.4 or so. This is true for all photos in a certain file I downloaded from online. They are appliance products. I tried downloading a random, even larger image from google, 26mg, 12000x8000 or something like that and changed it to 2000x1500 or so and the file size went to a respectable 1.5mg. I am resizing with windows photo gallery and my coworker tried photoshop with the same results, though I don't know what settings.

I redownloaded the files I am having trouble with and that didn't work. I'm not sure what to try. Can't find much online. Any ideas?

I am re-installing Windows XP Pro on an e-Machines T-6412 that I accidently hosed with Linux. The monitor is a HANNS-G 19 inch wide screen. Everything goes fine until I install the drivers for my video card. I installed an aftermarket Sapphire X1550 PCI-x16 card with 512 megs of Video RAM. Once the drivers are installed I lose 20% of the screen on the left-hand side. The display is still the full size but there is a black bar on the left side which is about 3 inches wide. This is after installing all the other drivers, before all the other drivers, or as all the other drivers are installed. I would really like to keep my big memory video card. Hellp is appreciated.

For a while now my Windows folder has been taking up more space on my 60GB SSD than I think it should. The size breakdown goes like this:

C:/Windows - 28 GB

- Assembly - 1.63 GB
- SysWOW64 - 1.30 GB
- Installer - 1.17 GB

I do regular registry fixes and temp file cleans, and I do regular inspections on my drives to remove unnecessary files and programs. However, the large increase in my Windows folder which happened about 6 months ago is really bothering me.

Is there any way get rid of some excess files? Or is this just a case of Windows inaccurately showing the actual amount of free space due to hard links?

Question: Image File Size.

Kindly help me out...

The file size of an image is determined by the size, resolution, bit depth, and complexity of the image.
I have a jpeg image that's 220 x 220 pixels, 72 dpi, 24 bit, and it's not complex at all. It's not a multi-layer/frame/page image. And VirusTotal gives it the all clear.

How is it possible that the file size is 3.2 MB?

This is really weird. For most sites, in Firefox and IE, if you enter the url of an image in the address bar, it loads the image into the browser window.

However, I'm finding that the images in a folder on one of my sites are not showing in IE7. They show fine in Firefox!

Looking at the size of the images, it seems that files smaller than 1Mb are loading in IE7 but those above it aren't.

Is there a file-size limit? Is there a way around it?

I've got a PDF file that I need to re-size by 200% before I print it. When I re-size it in the PDF window it prints the smaller version.

I thought that if I opened it using Irfanview it might let me change it that way but a message showed that I need to download the latest plug-ins so I did but then another message showed that I need to download Ghostwriter. I didn't download that yet.

If I download that, will that let me adjust the picture? Or will I keep getting message after message that I need something else and even then will I ever be able to adjust the size and print it that way?

Image Properties - Attribtes V's File Size

Was uploading a image over at and there is a max. 2 MByte per file on .jpg files.
I had images that I know are under 2 MB but then get a error telling me the file is too big. I look in my ACDsee image viewer and look at the file size in window and I was way below 2MB so did not understand what was going on.
This was on a image I did Bygum posted. So I changed things by making it grayscale 16 bit but it was saved grayscale 8 bit and it got the size down below 2 MB.
But the I open the 3 images up again in PhotoImpact and clicked on Image Properties and your see that there are two sizes for each image. The file size is what your see in windows, image viewer etc.
So my guess is that the limit of 2 MB is not the file size but the Attribtes size.

What is all this on having the two sizes because I sure don't understand it.
Look at how many time bigger the Attribtes size is.

So anyone know what this means?

Answer:All Image file size increases upto 41 mb

I suspect it is a variation on a .ink file virus. My guess would be that the files that you see are fakes, and the real images are hidden.Before you go to the next step, can you opposite click on one of the files in question select properties and post back the name of the image, and also the directory it is found in.(for example c:\myimages\) also the size it claims to be if it is different then the 41 Mb. First step may be a roll back through system restore. If that fails to work a quick Malwarebytes scan may reviel your trouble maker, feel free to post the log back. Thanks for you reply.:: mike

I'm having some problems with a PPt presentation containing image-processed very high resolution pictures. They look as though they are very LOW res when projected via a digital projector, as though the slide was very transparent and the projector lamp too bright. The combined file sizes of the 70 or so pictures is 500Mb but when saved as PPt on CD the total PPt file is only about half of this. Does PPt have very lossy file compression built in? Using Photoshop to prepare the BMP and JPeg images, is there an optimum image size and dpi recommended for images to be digitally projected via Powerpoint? My images are currently a mix of 8x10 at 72dpi down to 2x3 at 2400dpi, plus many variations in between. Other presentations containing smaller image files have come out OK.

Answer:Powerpoint pictures and optimum image file size

If your presentation is designed for a projector that works at 800 x 600 all images should be resized to suit that, or 1024 x 768, as appropriate.DPI is irrelevant here - its pixels you want to know about. 2"x3" at 2400 dpi means 4,800 pixels x 7,200 - six times more detail than can physically be displayed by many projectors.Irfan View click here will batch resize images to common screen resolutions like XGA or SVGA.

Firstly this is using work systems (XP with office 2003 - upgrading not an option).

I have to produce a powerpoint containing maps daily, unfortunately I have a strict limit of 1mb for 5 maps (yes it seems we are stuck in the dark ages).

Maps are produced using my own site utilising google maps api and external data to produce heatmaps. I have also used html2canvas to produce a jpg of the map generated by the API.

If I use html2canvas to produce a jpg and save it is ~100kb (use mid compression) however as soon as I insert into powerpoint and save the resulting file is 2mb+ (single slide nothing but the one map).

However if I screenshot the result, paste into paint, crop and save as jpg then insert this is fine (5 maps ~600kb). It is just a pain in the a$$ method compared to clicking a button to save pre-cropped image.

(Using powerpoint compress image options also makes no difference and resulting file is still over 2mb for one image).

Any ideas why this may be?

ImageMagick makes it very easy from command line, and being command line there are no bells and whistles.

When installed and the DLL is registered you have all the commands available from command line, no need to start any programs to do graphics manipulations, tons of options if you read up on it on

Apologies - the Urgent in this is only because I'm unsure whether any action may need to be done before I close down in about 6 hours or so.

Basically my problem began in Picasa 3 where I watched a short vid then decided to change the filename. That done I closed the preview & went back to the main program where I discovered that Picasa had somehow decided I wanted the entire folder of images renamed so it has worked through the 500+ images and renamed each one as Filename001, Filename002, Filename003 and so on which as you can appreciate is now causing somewhat of a major headache for me. It would take me a good few hours I would rarely have to go through and rename each one manually, so my question basically is - is there any method or program that can undo the action as I can't find any means of doing so from within Picasa. All other options I've found in my searches are mainly to achieve pretty much the same i.e. bulk rename as Name1, Name2 etc so are of little help.

Anyone any suggestions what else I could try?

I'd like to disable many services in bulk. Can this be done via a batch file?

For example in service_manual.bat - I'd like to Stop and set to Manual these services.

Adaptive Brightness
Application Experience
BitLocker Drive Encryption Service
Bluetooth Support Service
Certificate Propagation

For example in service_disable.bat - I'd like to Stop and set to Disable these services.

Going through many services to disable and or set to manual is very tedious.

I have a file of hundreds of image files. Many are named like this:



However, many are INCORRECTLY named like this:


You can see, the 'ABC' part has been lowercased.

Is there any way to BULK find/replace 'abc' with 'ABC' in the file name?

Answer:Bulk FIND & REPLACE with UPPERCASE of file names...

There are batch renamers, but I'm very unfamiliar with them. I use xnview, which is a freeware image browser, and it has the capability of changing only the case of files.
Say all the files are in a folder. You can right-click the folder and pick browse with xnview. Then click ctrl-A to select all the files in it. Then right-click and pick batch rename.Then make sure all the boxes are unchecked except "case". And in the drop-down menu pick "name uppercase" or "name and extension uppercase". If you need to set all names to uppercase and all extensions to lowercase (and it happens to be a mix of both), do it in two passes.

When I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2 I backed up data onto another HDD. Now due to the motherboard only has one connector for PATA, and that HDD and the DVD-RW are on different sides of the case (DVD-RW at the top the HDD at the bottom) I unplugged the HDD to plug in the DVD-RW. So the HDD wasn't connected when Windows XP Pro SP2 was being installed. After install I reconnected the HDD to find all the ownerships still set to some SUID ( Owner: S-1-5-21-602162358-152049171-839522115-1003 ) along with all the permissions with out Administrator or my user name included. Meaning I could read the files but I can't delete or move them. I set the Owner of the Root to Administrators group and the permissions to Administrator with Full Control but it didn't propagate on down to all the subfolders or files. So I need a way to propagate a mass owner change which hopefully will let the permissions to propagate too.

I've a fair number of ebooks on my PC and, to help keep track of series, I have a folder containing sub-folders, one for each series, which contain the shortcuts for the series. The ebook files themselves are contained in folders elsewhere.

For various reasons I've had to rename the folders containing the ebooks. This means, of course, that all my shortcuts have stopped working. Redoing all the shortcuts individually would be a real hassle, so, is there any way of doing a bulk correction of the shortcuts.

By the way, I'm aware of using Calibre for listing series; in fact I do so. The problem with this is that, after a certain number of series, they are sorted into alphabetical groups so that it's not possible to simply scroll through the names of all the series.

Answer:Bulk repair of file shortcuts in Windows Explorer

I can't think of anything, since it's not a rename you are looking for. You need to open the properties for each link and change the target.

C:\Users\JohnDoe\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Custom Dictionary.txt

All I can find online is information about adding language dictionaries, but I have 38kb of personal, motorsport, business, etc. terms that I've collected over the decades and centralize in a LibreOffice Writer custom dictionary, and can easily copy and paste that into my Firefox custom dictionary ? but Chrome includes a checksum at the very bottom, and also uses linefeeds instead of carriage returns (or vise versa). Looks fine in Wordpad, but with Notepad the text is all wadded up into one block of text.

So when I copy/paste my extra words (with the wrong linefeeds) into the Chrome custom dictionary file, boot up Chrome, it fails and auto-generates a new empty custom dictionary file. Not good.

The unduly burdensome workaround would be to copy/paste my custom words into some online forum page (like where I'm typing now) and right-click on each and manually add every word. Not good.

Surely I'm missing something really simple.

I used to see file editors back in the early days and never was able to handle them due to arcane
help files, TMI and other problems associated with pedantry in lingo.

Soon I will need to edit my HD of duplicates and no longer- needed items.

Please don't mention the "ability" to hold down the control key and make a box and delete what's inside.

No, what I need is something along the line of a wildcard delete such as delete myfile*.*

Is there anything like that in Win7 freeware? Something with a bit more control than
a screen full of highlighted things or the opposite: clicking each and every item, delete and confirm?

Answer:A file editing routine in Win7 or a program to deal with bulk files

Your title says "file editing". Your text refers to deleting.

Are you talking about identifying duplicate files and deleting the duplicates, so that you have only 1 version?

Are you referring only to files that have the same exact name, regardless of content? Or do you mean files with the same content, regardless of name?

Text files? Pictures? What file extensions generally?

You can do a lot from the command line using switches and wild cards.

There are good duplicate file finder applications. And the "Everything" search engine is great for finding files with identical names.

I just restored a bkf file and the restored folder is smaller than the original bkf file. I need to delete the bkf file which is 12 GB but don't want to until I am sure all the files were restored.
I would like to figure out which files were not restored.
Is there any way to figure out which files are missing. After I restored the files, the report says that hardlinks could not be transferred but does not the size of them. The bkf file size is 33,754,314 bytes larger than the restored file,but the bkf file "size on disk"is 19, 099,648 bytes smaller than the restored folder!!!
When I left click on the bkf file and select properties it does not tell me how many files are in the bkf file only the bytes.

Is there any freeware/program that will tell me the number of files in the bkf properties dialogue box? Or even better let me look at the size and number of files in the three main folders I backed up.? I can not access/explore the bkf file only restore it. That would solve my problem.

What is meant by "size" and "size on disk" in windows?

Answer:In File Properties, What is Size and Size on Disk in Windows

I bit more context might help a bit but I suspect you are referring to file size.A file of a particular size might uses more space than it A file that is 6kBs might uses 8 kBs of disk spaceSo the size is 6kBs and the size on disk is 8kBsThe difference is down to something called slack space. Slack space comes about due the the blocks that the hard dsik is divided up in known as clusters. With the NTFS file system the cluster size is 4kBs. So a file will always use multiples of 4 kBs on the disk. The bit left over at the end is slack space.The biger the cluster size the more slack space which is essentially wasted space. With the Fat32 file system the cluster size can be as large a 64 kBs.. So a 4kBs file will use 64kbs of disk space. a 65kB file will use 128 kBs of disk space..Stuart

After doing a lot of file management (backups, deletion of unnecessary files, defrag, etc) I was able to recover a substantial amount of space. When opening up Computer, I noticed that the size was only registering about 70GB free (out of 500). Knowing this couldn't be the case (I had found the directory my screen recorder saves to, apparently it records lossless avi at 1gb/minute) I did the usual right click on all the folders in root:\ and the size count was only 162GB, with hidden and system folders viewable. I found TweakNow PowerPack 10, which I had used for its Disk Usage Analyzer. That came up with only 94GB used.

After those installs, the disk size jumped to 94GB free.

Attached is the Systweak file structure (only root:\*, so nothing personally identifiable), the [email protected] Hard Disk diagnostic (can't make much sense of it, I'm a computer guy but not that far into the really specific components), and the main Computer window and properties.

I have MS Access 2010 & have a database that has been about 45 MB in size for 2 years. About a month ago I noticed it now is 67 MB. I compact & repair every time I save it which is twice a month. I've gone back & did a compact & repair on the 67 MB file but it does not change.

I must have looked at & changed something without realizing it. The actual number of records appears to be correct. How can examine and/or compare tables or other internals between the two sizes? I've seen a program called AccdbMerge come up on a few Google hits & was wondering if anyone ever used it?

And & all suggestions would be appreciated.

Answer:Access file size increased in size by 50%

The only reason I've seen for a database to get very large is when there is a picture (JPG file) used in a form. Apparently Access does not do a very good job with storing this type of data. Perhaps your database has an image stored as a data item in a table (or some other place.) Other than idea why you should see such a large size.

Alternately, you can create a new empty database and then copy each object from your current database to the new one, one at a time, and check the size of the new database after each copy. That will at least identify which object is causing the problem.

Answer:file size vs size on disk

Disks are laid out at a base level in sectors, and then in clusters which are groups of sectors.
For example, on a 32GB partition (Fat32) the cluster size is 32000 bytes. On a NTFS system, the standard size is 4K.

Files can only be on a cluster boundary. Therefore, in this example, a file that is 16,000 bytes (file size) will be 32,768 bytes (on disk). And a 40,000 byte file (file size) will be 65,536 bytes (on disk).
Or, on a NTFS system, a 5,000 byte file will take 2 clusters, or 8,192 bytes (on disk)

Do Start > Run > Command and at the prompt enter

After it runs, the "xxxx bytes in each allocation unit" is the cluster size.

Well I am looking for either a site or a freeware tool that can compress the size of images so they can be used in my signature on this site, and others.

Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated.


Answer:Image Size Compressor

Try these links: found on the first page of Google... I hope those help...Otherwise, if you have photoshop, SAVE FOR WEB under the file menu will help you A LOT more than just saving it from the normal FILE > SAVE AS command.

I have been using Photoshop for two or three years but recently have a problem not experienced before. A downloaded photograph is shown in the 'image size' dialog box as 14.44 x 10.0 inches. When I crop the picture by removing less than an inch it is then shown in the 'image size' dialog box as being about 2.4 x 1.8 inches, when the extent of cropping should have only reduced the size by about 2 inches (width and height). 'Constant Proportions' and 'Resample Image' are both checked. The resolution increses very significantly on the cropped picture. Any suggestions as to why the size reduces out of proportion to the cropping would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Photoshop - image size

I have solved the problem. The width after cropping had been pre set at 6cm. Having cleared that cropping works ok.

Just yesterday installed Win7 Backup&Restore on my Lenovo M72e desktop with 1TB hard drive -- and proceeded to back up and create a system image on a 1TB external drive. It's not my first time backing up a computer, but it is my first use of the Win7 utility and I've not previously made use of system image.

I was initially confused to find that while my internal hard drive had roughly 325gb used (i.e., about 650gb of free space left) the external (backup) drive was using nearly 600gb for the backup. Was it backing up everything twice? Digging just a little bit deeper, I learned that the backed up data matched the C:-drive data in size, but that the system image was about 300gb.

Why so fat? Is this normal? Does the system image contain all of the documents and data all over again? If so, it appears that if/when I add substantial data to the hard drive (well, OK, that'll probably take a little while), I'll need a 2TB external to back up a 1TB internal. Is that so?

I searched this forum before posting, but didn't find much in the way of queries or explanation about system image size. So I'm just looking for confirmation that this is the way it is, and perhaps a bit of basic education and advice (in layman's language, please) about this. (e.g., Will subsequent backups create additional versions of the system image -- as well as the data backup -- and will I therefore have to be careful about monitoring and managing the backup disc?) Thanks for any hints and help in this ... Read more

Answer:System Image Size - why so fat?

I may be wrong, but I think the w7 backup includes restore points, page file, hibernation file if used, temp files, and the empty space.

I and many others don't trust it much, one never knows what it's doing. A superior way is using the free version of Macrium reflect. It only copies the system files and your data to an image. As example I imaged my system yesterday, which is 33.7GB but the image size is about 18GB.

I have just got a new computer, with win7pro. When using xp, and using windows photo viewer to look at my images, I could click on slideshow, and my image would appear in it's correct size, eg, my web sized image would be smaller on the screen as opposed to my full sized images. However, now when I try to view my web sized images using the slideshow, it stretches my image to fit the screen, and so my image doesn't look so good. I have searched everywhere for an answer, but no luck. Hope you can help me.
Sorry, new to this forum, not sure what section this should go under.

Answer:image size in slideshow

If you have MS Office on your system then you've got a great solution already in your computer. Instead of Windows Photo Viewer, use Microsoft Office Picture Manager, and your problems will be over. Picture Manager has several different ways to view photos --- you can just use the slider at the lower right corner of the screen to display the photo in any size you want, or you can actually change the size permanently, to any size you want. It's very user friendly and a great photo app for editing and viewing images - and can be used in conjunction with virtually all slide show viewers.

I have hooked my laptop up to a large screen TV. When I fire up the computer, the image doesn't fill the TV, there is space on both sides and the full laptop image is cut off at the sides. The strange part is that it was doing this yesterday, then for some reason it filled the screen and everything was tiny (which was fine); then I turned it off for the night and when I turned it on this morning, it was cut off again. I need it back to tiny and filling the screen!! Please help!

Question: Disk Image Size

I have just created a disk image using Windows 7 built in imaging feature and stored it to an external hard drive. When I right click and pick properties, I am told the image size is 0 MB. Is this normal? The entire process went as it should with no error messages.

Answer:Disk Image Size

Hello NHboomer, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, this is normal. You would have to open the Backup folder in the "WindowsImageBackup" folder and click on "Continue" to approve opening it first. Afterwards you should see the size in properties.

Hope this helps,

...I have endlessly searched on google for an answer to this question. I have two computers that I built from scratch that both use Windows 7 professional 64-bit LEGIT software. My main computer, luckily, has a Lock screen image that is large. The other computer has a lock screen that is small. Many other individuals have asked this and I just flat out think that people are not understanding the question. I understand you cannot change the "size" and it requires 128x128. I get that. Now...moving past that, there is a NOTICIBLE difference in the "frame" of the pictures size. Both have ONE user registered on the computer (admin) but I cannot for the life of me figure out why one is bigger than the other. I set them up the same way. Please PLEASE help me. This will just drive me nuts and I am sure others on the internet have noticed this issue and couldn't find a fix worth speaking. I have attached photos so there is NO way a "helper" could not understand.
Thank you for your time in advance and I'm sure this is an easy fix...but it is straining me.

I cannot understand the image size figures. Please can somebody explain if and how the size of the document in pixels relates to the Pixel Dimensions figure (expressed in millions). Multiplying the width and height pixel figures does not produce a figure anywhere near the stated Pixel Dimensions figure. Thanks

I have an ISO image which it says is 2.51Gb. I have tried using Roxio Media Creator and Sonic Record Now without success.The disk is a 4.7Gb blank DVD+R. In Roxio if I go into copy data it says there is 4.7Gb. When I go into Copy, Burn Image is then says 2.2Gb which is obviously not enough space to record the ISO. How can I do this. Why is the size of the DVD+R reduced?Does anyone have an idea.

Answer:iso image problems re size?

Have you by any chance copied the ISO image to the DVD+R?The image size is 2.5Gb, subtract that from the 4.7Gb DVD+R which leaves 2.2Gb free space.It is not enough to just copy an ISO image to a DVD, you have to use the appropriate image burning software such as the free software from click hereRoxio and Sonic Record may have the same facilities built in, it will be a matter of choosing the correct burning option.
