Windows 7: How to automatically delete/filter images which are smaller than X

How to automatically delete/filter images which are smaller than X

As the title says. I need a script or program which can check images inside a folder for their size and delete/filter everything below a certain threshold.

by size I mean of course the image dimensions - not the file size.

for example - keep only images which are wider than 640 pixels.

Any ideas? ; )

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (XP, 98SE, 95, 3.11, DOS 7.10 on VM) + Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx

You don't need any special software for that. The Search in windows explorer can be used for that.
All you have to do is specify the tags for Height and Width

width:<800 height:<600
This will list all the images in the folder with dimensions less than 800x600

width:800 height:=600
This will list all the images in the folder with dimensions exactly 800x600 (The = is optional)

You can use <, >, = and AND, OR in the search. By default AND is the operator used, if you have multiple tags in the search.
