Working with Bulk

I have around one hundred or so tiny thumbnails, all of which have varying width and height dimensions. What I need to do is select them all in Photoshop CS:3 and make them all somehow be changed to a specific (and consistent) width and height. The problem I keep running into is that selecting them all and then using the “Transform” option to change the scale alters the ENTIRE selection and not each object individually at the same time.

Is there a way to do what I’m trying to do? I’m not worried about loss of quality here because of the nature of the images, but if anyone could throw some light my way, I would really appreciate it.

You could do this with imagemagick and a one line command.
Do you want to crop or scale to the new size?

Hi EastCoast.

It’s hard to say because some sizes are bigger while some are smaller than the 125px by 125px requirement I had in mind.

If it’s for thumbnails I’d generally crop to the square rather than scale:

Think this should do it (overwrites originals so backup your files to a different directory first)
mogrify *.jpg -resize 125x125 -extent 125x125 -gravity center *.jpg
