- If anyone is interested i wrote a program that allows you to reduce
images (jpg, gif, bmp) by percent, fixed sizes (width x height), PDA
size (240 x 232 pixels) and Smartphone size (176 x 144 pixels). The
advantage of this program is that it will reduce an entire folder's

put hundreds of images onto my PDA and Smartphone without using up a
lot of storage memory. This program will not affect the original image
files and creates the new images in a sub folder with an appropriate
The program is written in C# and runs on Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP
and 2003. You will need to have the .NET Framework installed in order
to have this program work. If anyone is interested, send me a message
and i'll send it to you.
