Re size pictures in batch without using version copies?

Nov 22, 2012 10:21 PM

I have been going through my catalog & find hundreds of old pictures what I should delete as they will almost certainly never be looked at or used again.  If they were to be reused I could probably only need a copy that was much smaller in size. Rather than just delete them I was considering making the files size much smaller.

 

Is there any way yo use the batch processing tool to resize hundreds & have them saved by overwriting the old copy rather than have them as a version set?  I didn't want to do this one at a time.

 

Thanks in advance

    Here is one way :

    - assign a common tag to all files to be downsized (downsized for instance)

    - With this tag, you can select all pictures at the same time

    - suggestion : since you may have ratings or tag in the original files, you could 'write metadata to files'

    - Use the export as new file feature of the Organizer to export them in a new folder

    - Once that is done, you can use the delete feature of the Organizer to delete the originals from the catalog and the drive.
