actions/macros
Is there a way to automate repetitive actions such as file size and file saving to the same folder?

RE: actions/macros
The truly general case: Gimp won't do macros. It will do scripts & plugins instead. Much more powerful, but indeed out of reach for some people who aren't in programming.

[url= http://registry.gimp.org/node/25305]There is plugin[/url] to make it easier to write plugins & macros, but it still looks a bit on the techie side.

To load & save files from a given directory directly: see here

Now, if you just want to resize a set of images, a much faster solution is to use a command line tool such as ImageMagick's convert. Some image management software also include batch renaming/resizing, and I've hear a lot of good things about XnView (free software)

Thanks for the reply. I was afraid this was the case. I don't do programming so I'll search for another solution.

RE: actions/macros
As to ImageMagick, how do you access a command line when inside the gimp program?

RE: actions/macros
If you need to ask the question, ImageMagick isn't for you Smile Try XnView.
