Image batch processing

Can anyone suggest an application to batch process images e.g. renaming using replace or template and resizing. I frequently have to reduce the size of a large amount of images and I need an application that can resize them in a batch to for instance 800x600 or 600x800 while maintaining the original aspect ratio. I would prefer something with an intuitive user interface.

I searched far and wide for a good program that'll do batch processing. Then I figured out that you can do almost any kind of batch processing with a single command on the command line.

Seeing as you want something with an "intuitive user interface", I'll unfortunately be of no help. But don't count the command line out just because it isn't pretty!

ImageMagick and a little shell scripting can pull that off quite easily.
Use the "mogrify" (only resizing) or "convert" (format conversion) programs.
