    If I have a folder with let's say 5000 pictures and I want to delete all the pictures except the ones with resolution 1440x990 for example, how can I do this ? Is there any script or a program or something ?

    Manually it's horrible...

    Sounds like something you could batch through Firefox or Adobe Bridge.

    Have you tried distributing the files inside the folder based on therir discspace ussage (weigh) ?

    Maybe it would do it a little bit easier for you if you delete all the lighter ones,
    Try looking for the first image that is 1440x990 and delete anything lighter than that.

    It will do things a lot easier fr you.

    Cheers.

    If you are running linux you can do this w/ a bash script using ImageMagick.

    On windows do an advance search and specify the minimum size of the image files which you want to be deleted.
