    I used this once several years ago. I synced Word to a folder with images, it created icons ~90px with links to the large images. I need to know for a more recent version of Word.

    Or is there an easier way to do this? I just need a bunch of images reduced in size for icon links.

    Download IrfanView and use the batch resizer.

    That seems to do it one at a time and then I have to write the code for each one. The old word did all of this at one time. I need something like that with all of the images I have to work with.

    Yes. I tried one that worked the way I wanted it but it put "sample" all over it.

    I guess you tried the Form Builder (not free) in PageBreeze then.

    I think OP is wanting it to not only be resized, but a page automatically generated with links to the images. I can't think of much myself, but maybe MS Expression Web carried on the crap-tastic torch?

    But you are not building a form?

    What you are creating is a 'gallery'
    and IrfanView can do that for you if you have no HTML knowledge, and it creates "better" HTML than Word does.

    Yes, and it added "DEMO" all over the pictures.

    Mainly I wanted to resize over 200 images at the same time. I could do it using Photoshop but it would be VERY time consuming. I can create a php loop that will do the coding I need. I just remember Word doing the resizing for me.

    You don't even need actions. The batch commands in PS can do it. Hell, if you're on Windows, just install this bad boy: http://sourceforge.net/projects/phototoysclone/

    You just right click the image and click "resize"
