I imported 280 photos from a friend. They are "raw" from his Canon camera - .CR format. Great-- but they take up 8 gb of hard drive space! I'd like to trim them down a lot-- they average 10 to 18 mb each in size. How can I reduce all the photos to about 2-3 mb each? Is the only way to export them (and if so, how to do that?) then reimport them in the new, smaller format?
Thanks for any procedure here-- I'd love to take the originals and just batch reduce them if possible--
UPDATE BEFORE I SUBMITTED THIS JUST NOW: I went ahead and exported the photos in batches of about 50 at a time. I used Maximum jpeg quality and large size and reduced the approx 15 mb photos to about 750 kb each. I then reimported them, deleting the original RAW files from iPhoto (but keeping them for now in case there is a prizewinner in there…)
This went relatively quickly. Any other ideas in case I need to do this in the future? Shareware or Software solution? Appreciate it!
