I am making a website containing all the pictures taken at my School Prom. I have been sent loads of images that i am to use. The thing is these images are large like 300kb. If i was to have them all on one page, for every user who connects would have to wait for each image to load and basically use all my bandwidth limit.

I thought i would use different pages and thumbnails. The thumbnails are just the same size in kb as the full pictures even tho i have changed the resoltuion of them. Is there any way of reducing the size of them without editing each on in paint to make them smaller ???

Thanks

There's a great PHP script package called Gallery. You can find it at Sourceforge. You can upload an entire directory of images at once, and add captions, keywords.

I've got it running: http://www.pattheotter.com

Macromedia Fireworks also has a batch function which allows you to decrease the res and size.

As Chips said, use the batch editor in PSP, if you've got Photoshop that also has a batch editor to make thumbnails, easiest way I find is to go File > Automate > Web Photo Gallery - select source and destination and let it create it's own pages, then discard the majority of the pages it creates but use the thumbnail pics.

I'd also suggest that if you have Photoshop (I'm assuming PSP has the same function) that you save all your pictures to web format.

File > Save for Web - you can create a batch file to do this but I can't remember how you set it up, anyway, load up a picture, do the Save for Web and select medium or low, the lower the resolution the bigger the picture compression is (compression maybe the wrong word there) and the faster the picture will load in.

Basically I've done loads of photos which I've uploaded to my site which normally come off of my camera at about 500k, these compress down to about 100k :)

Much better for people viewing on dial up and your bandwidth.

If you have Paint Shop Pro, it has a batch editing feature.
