Image Magick (Yup, spelt just like that) is a free (not shareware) command line tool which, as far as I can tell, does every thing PhotoShop does - but w/o a GUI (unless you're running X-Windows, in which case, it's fully GUI enabled.) Don't remember the URL. +1 to aardvark, with a suggestion: automate, but either spot check or just check (less time to do a quick visual on already tweaked pics than to tweak by hand.) joel at spinhead.com > From: "Jeana Clark" <jmclark at multiservice.com> > > My boss (who's a marketing dude and all about automating as much work > as we can) is wondering if there's a server-side program (running on > apache or NSCA) that can automatically optimize graphics to a certain > 'size' compression etc that we can set and sort of set it as a cron > job.
