    Hi All.

    I hope you can help me. I am in need of an app which can take the images one by one from a folder (JPEG format or various RAW file format from digital cameras), and resize and lower quality a bit. Put the resized in another folder, then delete the original images. Or just skip them. It has to run automatic or every x minute.

    Have you heard of an app that can pull this off? I have search Android Market, app brain, the net and this forum, but no luck.

    Thanks in advance.

    I agree. This would be hugely useful.

    I might add convert to more efficient webp or bpg. Maybe tweak the q of the jpg, along the way.

    Couldn't you just change the image resolution in the camera app?
    Seems like that would do what you want, without an added app.

    Not at all. There is no q setting, image format, or image size that is suitable.

    Example, go see bpg, webp, comparison pages. Jpg is just double to triple the size.

    Example, try to build a remote viewing camera that shoots a 20 k high quality image size and up loads a small image every 1 minute. Nanny cam, time clock, remote supervision, court documentation via time lapse of contract fulfillment, guarding equipment. You cannot get a simple high quality tiny image file via camera, with the small size and clarity that was sought in the dialup days.

    Also, a real operating system, as envisioned in the early 1980s, allowed as many uses for the consumer of their own machine as possible by allowing easy programming as possible for the computer buyer. They had to sell the need for the machine. So scripting, macro building, command line tools, ghost clicking, stringing of dozens of programs together without human interaction, making Uber programs, the end consumer with 90 hour work week could do in hour. ... I don't see same usefulness in Android, and never linux. Lock down, without key given to the computer buyer.

    Is there not an ImageMagick and command line script for this? Ftp,wput,etc? How how about ghost pixel clicks. You cannot automate a single Playstore ap. Unless Tasker can send mouse clicks to buttons, pixels, and send key strokes to other program dialogs.
