I'm having a 17 GB gallery that is running out of disk space on the webhost.
I am considering batch downsizing all images.
One way I consider to do this is by downloading all gallery jpg files to my local machine. There I run a batch imagemagick on all the files to downsize them. Then I reupload them in the same way I downloaded them, replacing the originals.
But I'm not sure if this can have negative implications. E.g. the file hashes will change, so maybe gallery2 would alarm about that? I suppose all thumbnails need regeneration?
Do you think this approach is feasible?
