Thank you to Sean, Mike, and Jacque for the ImageMagick recommendation. I downloaded the program and it looks like it will solve my problem.

For those who may be thinking of trying it: Being somewhat brainwashed into the Windows OS mentality, I was caught off guard by the command line interface. Unless I'm missing something, you don't see the ImageMagick "program," but it does have a viewer to show you the results of your manipulation. You have to enter the command and then look at the change in a separate viewer (included in the installation). The difference is something I can get used to.

It brings to mind the discussion a few weeks ago about the power of the command line interface. I can certainly see where the command line interface would make it much easier to manipulate batches of graphics by using ImageMagick.

Thanks again. Now I have the program handy for when I need it.

Indeed, ImageMagick is the tool you want. I wasn't sure if it had a
Windows version, but it does, at Click Binary
Releases from the main page, unless you just want to install from
source. Does many wonderful things with graphics, as the name
implies--and it delivers on the promise, too!
