    Is it possible to resize a large number of jpegs to a lower resolution at the same time using photoshop? Or is there maybe at least just a more streamlined way of doing it without doing it manually, one-at-a-time in photoshop?

    Yes, you can use actions.

    To create an action for resizing a bunch of JPGs, do this:

    1. In Photoshop, open up 1 JPG.
    2. Go to Window -> Actions.
    3. Press the button that looks like a little piece of paper at the bottom of the actions window - that is the "New Action" button.
    4. Name your Action, and press Record.
    5. Now, everything you do is being recorded. So do all the stuff that you want to apply to many files. Like, go to Image -> Image Size and enter a new DPI, dimensions, etc.
    6. When you're done doing everything, press the square on the Actions window - that's the Stop button.
    7. Now, you've created your Action, and you need to play it on a bunch of files... So go to File -> Automate -> Batch...
    8. Select the action you just created in the action dropdown.
    9. Choose a Source - the files you want to apply the action on - select a folder with all the files, or you can run the action on all open files (files open in Photoshop)... etc.
    10. Choose a destination folder, so that your new files will be saved to that folder.
    11. Press OK!

    ... Let me know if you have any problems with it. But that should be it!

    Chris, if you're dealing with websites, you can also use Perl/Imagemagick to
    make smaller images and thumbnails automatically on websites.

    This of course involves some server-side scripting, but consider it an option.

    On your PC/Mac, of course, you would use Photoshop.
