    Using VBA to automate MS Photo Editor

    Hi
    Win XP, Office 2002.
    Is it possible to automate MS Photo Editor via VBA? I want to load a JPG, resize and save a bunch of files.
    (Installing other software on the machine is difficult.)
    Thanks for any suggestions - a URL or two would be much appreciated.

    Unless you need VBA to control the operation, you may want to look at a portable application that doesn't require installation.

    One example is Faststone Photo Resizer, located here.

    I have used Irfanview to batch resize photos. I see from the website that it can work as a portable application - from a USB stick.

    You run it from VBA with the Shell command, using various command line switches that are dcoumented in the Irfanview help files.
