Default batch processing images

i dont really use fireworksthat often, but i have it. So i'd like to batch re-size a whole folder of images by say 50% (so they would reduce by half width and height in pixels)

i havnt actually tried it yet, for some reason im procrastinating here on the puter at home... it was a big day at work.

thanks for any pointers

i prefer Photoshop which has an excellent batch processing system in the form of actions

This should work in Fireworks:

-Go to File -> Batch Process
-Select the files you wish to resize and click "Add" and "Next"
-Doubleclick on "Scale"
-select size etc, make one a variable to keep the result from becoming distorted
-"next" -> "batch"
