I'm not sure it will do EVERYthing you want, but JASC (the folks that make
Paint Shop Pro) also make a program called "JASC Image Robot" that does a
nice job. I used it to change the number of colors to a whole batch of
files at one time. IMO this is one of the greatest shortcomings in
PSP...not being able to set defaults. I want to set default directories,
formats, # of colors, etc.

Check the JASC web site for a free demo of the Image Robot.
