    Each shoot I do keeps getting larger and larger in the number of proofs I come back with, and more often than not the client wants to see them all, and I thought it was a hassel, other than providing a small quality version, I've also created a unique online link for them to preview them on, all watermarked (I was ripped off on my first paid shoot). Doing it, one by one, got to be a huge hassel, and I went searching on the internet for a bulk resizing and watermarking program.

    I was looking for freeware and came across "Picture Resize Genuis" and it worked out fantastic! It resizes the photos to any size you wish, in bulk, and then adds your choice of watermark. It's great for large sets.

    What other programs are out there that provide the same service? Are they freeware or shareware? Which ones have you tried out?

    I'm always looking for new products to try out, and this picture resize genuis, dispite the tacky name, works perfectly.

    I don't know what program you are using for post processing, but you can do this in photoshop if you have it.

    Irfanview is another that springs to mind, and it is free.

    Create an action, which is as simple as opening the actions pallete, creating a new action, pressing record, and going through your steps. Hit stop when you are done. Then go to file/automate/batch. It's pretty self explanatory from there.

    It was mentioned how to do it in Photoshop, If you have Paint Shop Pro, you can also use scripts to process your images. Similar to PSP, You record the steps by selecting record button and walk through the steps, then save the script. The Script toolbar is located under View, toolbar, script. Very vaulable tools.
