You'll do no better than irfanview.

It's freeware and it does batchconversion.

I've been using IrfanView for years, but never realized it did batch conversion jobs.  Cool!

It's not much for image editing a la photoshop or even paint, but it's a light, fast, free viewer/resizer/format converter, has some basic effects/filters (including the dreaded 3D bevel) and it's one of the things I download every time I do a new OS install.  (=

Instead of doing a new OS install, try backing up your finalized fresh build onto a mirror or backup drive.  (after all apps and configurations are done)

Occassionally, mirror your current drive onto the backup..If you ever need a reinstall, just swap drives.  You'll never need to reinstall an app again.

I would recomend imagemagick .

Another IrfanView fan! It can also create photo albums, includes a hex editor, and -- I imagine -- washes your dishes, if you ask nicely.

Irfanview can also be used from command line. I use it extensively from perl.

Best regards

Sorry Thoma, IrfanView wouldn't wash your dishes, but you can definitely "Save As" clean dishes.
