I usually get overblown images that are simply not good for computer use. They waste so much size and really hate to watch overblown images that are not even internet ready.

I got a script that uses ImageMagick to resize images to a more suitable size (800x600 or 640x480). However I see that this images loose a lot of info, speciallly the meta-information called EXIF.

What I want is a tool that will let me batch-resize images and ALSO preserve this EXIF information. I was thinking of using a temporary files and use it as a database, then I went on using an actual db. However I want to consult with you guys on alternatives that I could use. I guess an array might also take care of this.

Thanks for your advice. Regards.

I don't really know if this is what you want, but I think it is (if that makes sense) but may be good...

You might check into GD2, it may support exif data, i'm not postive, as I use ImageMagik. I created bbips , but that uses imagemagik and not gd to do the conversion.

On way might be to incorporate jhead into a conversion script, and read the data into a variable....convert, then put the data back into the image ... haven't played with that myself, so i can't tell you "exactley" how that would work, but it did come to mind.

Let me know if you find a solution.
