Please, could you describe a use-case in which this functionality could be useful?

Please note that the compression dialog shows data about the image to be compressed. It could be not easy to make a dialog for the case of multiple files.

Set status to NEEDINFO. Please set it back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided requested informations. Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards. JBF

Not a bug, set importance to enhancement.

Sorry, yes. Is not a bug, but enhancement.
In my office many people insert to write document 20 photo to make a daily report about street problem. Photo is made by 14 Mpx camera (2/3 Mb for 1 file!)
So 1 document is about 40/50 MB!

1st solution that i  will enhancement: select 20 image in the same time (now is not possible) and select "image compression" and apply the same compression (ex: Jpeg compression = 60%) for all image.

2nd solution that i will enhancement: select only 1 image and select "image compression" in the compression option windows ad a push botton or a switch to apply the actual setting to "all image of document".

This funtion will save many minutes. Now my colleagues select and change image one by one.
Thank you. Excuse me for my english and if i don't clear.

Ok, your wish is to have a function like "minimize the presentation" in Impress.
Changed summary accordingly.

Valid enhancement, set status to NEW.

Moving to component Writer. 

I suggest to not fiddle around with multiple selection but have a separate function. Either Format > Image > Compress All... or something with save, perhaps along with an option similar to LibO > Print > Reduce bitmaps.
