    Automatic thumbnail maker softwares?

    Hello All! I have an image folder here with over 2500 large images. I'm looking for a software that can scan this folder ... create another folder call "thumbnail"... and automatically make thumbnails of each large images into this folder. Another suggestions? I'm on Window XP.

    Give EZ Thumbnails a go: http://www.fookes.com/ezthumbs/

    It's free, and has a reasonable set of options for configuring size, compression etc of your thumbnails.

    While you're on the Fookes site grab NoteTab - there's a free version. It's a great text editor if you're into hand coding.

    Does PS have an action/function for exactly what the poster wants to do:

    Each program has it's own uses...no one program does it all.

    I have PS, Paint Shop Pro, Fireworks, EZ Thumbnails and more on my machine.
    When I need to batch thumbnail a whole folder full of images, I use the least bloated, fasted loading and functioning softwate that does that specific job.

    yes, you can do that in photoshop, quite easily.

    - Make a folder called "thumbnail" somewhere (preferrably near the picture folder)
    - Open Photoshop
    - File > Open one of the photos
    - In the "Actions" panel, click the "create a new action" icon (2nd from the right, next to the trash can). name it something logical, like "thumbnails to 100px". the red record button should be on
    - Perform your actions. in this case, go to image > image size and resize whichever dimension you want them all to have (if they all need to be 100px wide, make the width 100px). make sure "constrain proportions" is checked.
    - Click the rectangle button in the actions panel (first from left) to stop recording. Close the image without saving.
    - Go to file > automate > batch, select the action you just recorded from the action dropdown menu, choose the source folder, choose the destination folder, and set the naming conventions for the thumbnails (like "[file name]Thumb.jpg"), then press okay

    and that should do it. if i have forgotten something, its because i haven't done this in years. but it should be pretty simple to figure out

    ^ Nice. I don't have Photoshop. They're too expensive.
