there are a ton of free rotation and resizing apps (applets)... google is your friend.
include the word: lossless

I believe that infranview can batch resize images.
If not, you can use gimp for free image editing (very nice program, not quite photoshop, but more than adequate for anything like this)
UPDATE: Heres a link to irfanview http://www.irfanview.com/
Heres a tutorial on batch image resizing (with irfanview) http://www.ofzenandcomputing.com/zanswers/1028
Hope that helps.

If you don't need a fancy GUI to resize your images and such I highly recommend Imagemagick.

So I'm going to have to resize all my fanart to 720x1080 for it to work with this new Aeon? Either that or re-download them all at the right resolution...?
Does this also mean I'll have to search for fanart each time I add something as I use Media Companion and I don't believe it scrapes high res fan art... just the fan art that's available on the sites it scrapes... Is there another app I could use that would let me specify High-Res fan art? Also am I correct in that my thumbs should be in 720x1080 as well for Aeon to look it's best or does it not matter for thumbs?

its my understanding to use MINIMUM 720x1080 .. so i figure using the 1000x1500 from sireef should be fine

720x1080 only relates to posters, and only if you want a perfect fit. 1920x1080 is still the optimum for fanart.

So, now everybody's starting to say 720x1080 instead of 729x1080??
Which is it?
I've just started getting alot of thumbnails and making them exactly 729x1080 (74 posters already) and wondering if they're now considered wrong?
Is 729x1080 (or 720x1080) the minimum size or maximum size? what i mean is, is it best to get at 1080 heights, or best to download the 1000x1500 posters? Currently, i have been downloading posters anywhere between heights of 1500 and 3000, but have been resizing to 1080?
- BliBlaBlo - 2009-02-22 23:59
I also started resizing to 729x1080 and also hope this was correct
By the way... i used Automator (OSX) but am not 100% safisfied because it left over a little (1px width) gray border on the left and the right side.
Does anybody else use Automator? Would be great if somebody got the script working better and could post it here or pm me (maybe pm would be better )
Or discribe an other method to do it on a Mac with a free programm
thx a lot

djh so when you say posters you are referring to the posters to be used as the thumbs right? Sorry if this is a dumb question...
- djh_ - 2009-02-23 01:56
Thumbs and full size posters used by the info views. And it's 729, not 720 - I was derailed by some other wrong person.
