    Dear all,
    I am using some time some manual lenses and I wanted to share these images with you and start the discussion.

    The problem is that my current internet connection is over UMTS network and I have a very limited data volume. If I start sharing images of 2 to 3 MBs I will just deplete all my available volume.

    I would like to ask you for a program that can allow me to easily select a bunch of my captured images (like holding ctrl button and selecting multiple files same with the internet explorer) select a size the images to be re sized, given jpeg quality and an output folder (so I do not overwrite the source files)

    1. Is there a program that can do that or in a similar way?
    2. What would be an "okay" size and jpeg quality for sharing images in this forum and friends? What would be your choice?

    I would like to thank you in advance for your help
    R.

    Lightroom easily will do what you want to do. A good image size for posting here or sending via email would be somewhere in the 800-1024 pixel range on the longest edge, and with jpeg compression that's still visually acceptable, you should be able to get the file size down to ~200 kB, depending on the content of the image.

    Picasa (free from Google) also has nice export functionality.

    You might also want to look into XnView, it's a free image viewer with batch processing capability (resize, convert, rotate, and many more).
