2. Usage

Simply run the program. It will prompt you for an input directory and an output directory. Please be consistent with your trailing slashes:

e.g. :

Source directory:
D:\Photos\2008

Target directory:
C:\Users\Ben\SkyDrive\FamilyPhotos\2008

The source directory and all subfolders will be scanned. The default rules are as follows:

  • Anything that is not a JPG is ignored.
  • Images under 500 KB are copied directly to the output directory.
  • Images over 500 KB are resized to 1920 pixels on the longest edge, and the result is saved in the output directory.
  • Images in the Source directory are never modified (although the "last access time" may be updated, depending on system settings)
  • Images in the Target directory are never overwritten. Files and directories that do not exist are created. The modification timestamp of directories may change due to items being created within those directories.

Additionally, the directory structure of the Source directory is preserved and (relatively) re-created under the Target directory.
