Resize Multiple Images – I Stumble into this situation when trying to resize 70 PNG images that have 5 to 8MB per picture into a smaller size. The goal is to make the size smaller not the resolution, so I tried to use a free plugin to compress the sizes automatically however in the free version the maximum file size to compress is 2 MB so this not fixing my problem.

I also try the fast image resizer program which works great for JPG files but unable to resize PNG transparent files properly, it will turn the transparent part into black, it seems to resize it into a JPEG format although the extension is PNG.

So I tried to use batch resize images on photoshop, below I outline the steps to follow it’s quite simple but there are some parameters you need to pay attention to.

Before doing the resize batch process make sure you put the same all the pictures with the resolution into a folder to make sure the result will perfect. Basically, Photoshop will record what we did to a file and copy those steps into the rest of the file on the same folder.
