Here are two simple and fast ways of resizing images.

Using Photoshop

File, Scripts, Image Processor

1 – Connect the SD Card to the PC or Mac using a card reader (available in the tech store)

 

2 – Open Photoshop

 

3– Go to File > Scripts > Image Processor

1 –  Pick a Source Folder. This is where you are importing photos from.

On a Mac, go to Finder, then: EOS_DIGITAL > DCIM > 100CANON

On a PC, go to Computer, then: EOS_DIGITAL > DCIM > 100CANON

Please note, in some instances, the memory card may not be called EOS_DIGITAL, it may be called NONAME or AVCHD.

 

2 –  Select Location to Save Processed Image.

Create a folder somewhere where you will find it. This folder will be where your imported images are saved to.
