More Info:

 resizePhoto is a nice service menu to resize your
photos to a size suitable for emailing.  It will
resize any picture so that it is no more than 640
pixels on a side while preserving the aspect
ration.  This size can easily be changed by
editing a text file.

You can resize any number of photos simultaneously
by multiselecting them in Konqueror, then choosing
the "Resize Photo" service menu.

A dialog will display the progress.  The dialog
has a cancel button.

Open a folder containing some image files (.png,
.jpg, .gif) in Konqueror.  

Select one or several of these files.

Right-click one of the selected file and select
Action->Resize Photo.  (See first screenshot.)

A dialog will appear showing the progress of the
resizing.  (See second screenshot.)  Press cancel
if you so desire.

A folder named "Sized" will appear in the image
folder.  The resized photos are in that folder.

To install: 
Extract the two files from the tar.gz file.  Copy
the .desktop to
~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus.  Copy
the .sh file to somewhere in your path such as
/usr/bin, /usr/local/bin or ~/bin. Double check
that the .sh file is executable.

Edit the resizePhotos.sh file to change the size
of the resized files, or the name of the "Sized"

resizePhotos depends on Imagemagick and bash being
