Resizing
I am wondering if there is a way to solve my problem a little quicker then how I am currently doing it. I may be doing it wrong all together who know. I have few hundred product images that are all slightly different sizes. Generally metal or black products on white backgrounds. I need to make them all 800x600. In most cases white space needs to be added.
What I WAS doing was creating a new template in that size and dragging the picture I needed to add the white space to then exporting it in the file formate I needed.

Is there a BATCH way or something else I can do? This will take me days at this rate.

Thank you in advanced !

Code:
composite -compose Over Subject.png  Background.png -gravity Center Final.png

For several images in the same directory, create a "resized" child subdirectory and use
Code:
for %f in (*.png) do echo composite -compose Over %f Background.png -gravity Center resized/%f

where of course (*.png) can be replaced by (*.jpg) and Background.png should be replaced by the real name of your background image.



I should have clarified I am not a techy person.. at all.. Confused Reading that process sounds a little tricky?! I can certainly try however.

Ah, maybe I can help with that a little more. I did a freelance(non-profit) gimp workshop at my college a few years back as part of a tutoring exercise. (We then got peer review sheets from the audience of students who joined each tutor's class/workshop. The workshop could be about teaching how to do anything, I picked basic photo editing using gimp.

It was fun but even during the tutorial, I got comments that my pace was a little fast (it was my first time lol) & then on the written reviews a couple of reviewers got a little confused with the directions even though basic level (or so I thought XD)

So when showing a broad audience of computer pros to newcomers, you have to learn to gauge their skill level.
===================================

With that said, to download ImageMagick, go to this page, then find your country or the closest one.
http://www.imagemagick.org/script/download.php

Then, I found a video that claims to cover the basics of the program (from the download, to installing, to using the command-line commands (typing them in)
So maybe after watching this video you maybe better off with the basics known and then you should be able to use the commands that Of posted above.

goodluck with your batch photo processing needs!
