# Steemit Tips: One single click to batch resize and compress images, and insert your watermark 一键批量压缩多张图片和批量插入水印

The photographs taken by your camera or smartphone are usually unnecessarily large for posting on Steemit. They do nothing but slow down the loading of your post when others browse your post and waste their time. They might lose their patience and close your post. If the images are resized to figures with the width of 800 pixels before uploading, the size could be 10% of the original size, or even smaller, without losing any visual effect.

There are many ways to resize and compress multiple images. For example, @tvb suggested using a macro or action recorder in Photoshop, while @tumutanzi introduced a method of using Outlook. Both are good. But what if you want to insert your own water mark to multiple images in the meanwhile?

It is easy. Here I introduce a tip, which can resize and insert your watermark into hundreds of images in seconds, with one single click. At the end of this post, I have an animation gif figure for you to show how it works.

Before conversion, please follow my previous post and create your own steemit watermark with a transparent background.

Now let ’s go.

2. Open a figure with irfanview. Then press ‘b’ to open the batch conversion dialogue window.

3. On the left panel, choose ‘Batch conversion’. Choose JPG as Output format. Choose ‘Use advanced options’ and click ‘Advanced’.

4. In the pop-up dialogue window, click ‘load settings’, and choose ‘steemit-watermark.ini’ you downloaded just now.

5. Click ‘Add watermark image’ Settings button, and choose your watermark file. Click OK, and OK again. Now you are back to the batch conversion dialogue window.

6. Choose your Output directory for result files.

7. On the right panel, choose the figure files and click ‘Add’. Use ctrl or shift to choose multiple files.

8. Click Start Batch button.

Done! All the selected figures have been resized, compressed and your watermark has been inserted into every figure!

Wait a second…… Did I say ONE SINGLE CLICK?

Yes, I did. The steps I mentioned above are only necessary for the first time. When you open ifranview next time, just press ‘b’ to open the batch mode, then choose your figures, click ‘Start Batch’, and DUANG! Done! Even if you have millions of images.

If you want to only resize the images without inserting a watermark, just uncross the ‘Add watermark image’ option in Step 5.

Ifranview is one of the MUST software I have been using for years. It has many functions which you could have fun with.

Happy Steeming!
