Why? (explanation missing)

I support things that work; IrfanView works well for a great many people and 
for the jobs it was designed to do; so do XNview, OBS, ImageMagick, VLC, and 
a raft of other packages.

Then explain why it's "bad practice" (and whether you're referring "to 
support that software" or "to run all the images through it" or something 
else?). Normalizing formats/resolutions/etc is a common practice when 
working with multiple sources.

Again, explanation missing. If it could be done "with ease" it should have 
been quick to provide an example, especially to a neophyte (the OP); I'd 
expect nothing less from someone with your experience. Take the opportunity 
to help someone learn instead of throwing barriers in their way.
