Hello:

This will probably sound like a "no brainer," but I'm still relatively new to macs.

So to shrink a photo on a PC I would:
Download photos from my camera to the PC.
Open up Paint, and click on Image > Stretch/Skew
Enter a percentage to shrink the photo (e.g. 25% of the original size).

By doing this, I'm able to shrink a 8GB photo to 150KB. No cropping required.

Can I do this with a iPhoto, or another application?

Thanks,

VJ

If you want to do them one at a time as you did on Windows I would recommend ImageWell.

How about batch processing them, then? I worked out a nice quick and dirty way to do this in Windows: select giant pictures as downloaded from camera, right click, send to e-mail recipient, outlook opens, resizes the lot of them to 800*600 and downsamples them a bit, copy from attachement to different folder, discard e-mail.

I has a signijer.

I like CM photo tool:

It adds a contextual finder menu that shows up if you right click jpeg images.

You then get a whole bunch of batch resizing, editing & framing options...
