    ok once it has done it says

    copy to clipboard which does nothing when i click it or Exit which just takes me back to the black Irfaview screen

    click exit then look where its saved the photos and it will have resized the photos

    thats what i was looking for add-man but i just couldnt find where they were?

    it also came up 71 warnings, wonder what that means

    i just tried a test run and on mine.
    It made a new folder on my desktop

    what would the setting in advanced be 640 by 480 ?

    yes it was saved in c:>temp

    im assuming its where it says "set new size" then "set both sides to" and put width as 480 and height as 640

    Original Poster

    thats it, ill try that setting

    rep will be added for all the help folks

    thanks

    all repped and thanks

    Have you managed to get it working? As long as you set it to maintain aspect ratio and choose one side's size you should be good to go. Keep an eye on the dialogue as it does the task, there shouldn't be any warnings.

    whats yours?

    If you've got MS Office Picture Manager loaded you can resize all your photos in one go with that. (select 'View', then 'thumbnails', highlight all the thumbnails & then select 'picture' then 'resize'):thumbsup:
