Open a command window, type imagetool -? and hit the enter key.If imagetool is not found then specify its full path. A popup window appears with all the options, one is -batch. Batch processing you have to run from the command window. It's not available from the graphical user interface (windowed application).Hope this helps.Siggy

Copy this and save as a bat file.imagetool.exe -batch -32 -r -mip -e bmp;;-batch is the key;;-32 for 32-bit, you can guess the rest.;;-r no idea;;-add mips;;-e bmp is "export bmps" i think you can also do pngImageTool and the bat file must be in the folder with the bmps.Joe W.

-r will tell it to search for files in the subdirectories as well.Here is a list of the flags, taken from the FS2000 version of imagetool.
