Robert Lauriston asked about experience with an image downsizing app.
"My bitmap images are all screen shots and I think it looks more
professional to have them at the same DPI rather than scaling them
randomly to fit an arbitrary box."
I've been using SnagIt for that. It primarily does it by percentage, but it will downsize a whole directory of screenshots in one operation. It will also convert a whole file of images to another format at once. If you make repeated screenshots for the same application on a widescreen, for example, they'll all be approximately the same size, so reducing the whole set to a given percentage of the original size, such as 70% or 50% makes sense.
