Batch Processing in Photo-PAINT

Written by Jeff Harrison
February 9, 2009

One of the most common things that people should do, but don’t is down-sample images from their cameras before these:

1. emailing to family or friends

2. uploading them to a web site

This free video shows you how to do it, and below the video are free scripts for both Photo-PAINT X3 and X4. Ensure you use the script applicable to your version (both are in the single ZIP file).

I like to apply 50% adaptive unsharp to images after downsampling, so I put this in the script.

NOTE: You can edit the scripts in Notepad to change the default value of 700 pixels wide to something else if you like.

If you don’t have photo-PAINT, you could use Irfanview. The process is quite different, but the goal is the same & achievable.
