Is there a version for Mac?
Picture Resizer 6.0
November 6th 2011 - rss feed
An easy-to-use and free tool for batch resizing of JPG pictures and photos.
How to use it?
The size of output pictures is controlled by the name of the application. To rename it, click on the icon to select it and do one of these things: press F2 key, click in the text under the icon, or right-click the icon and select Rename command in the menu.
Depending on your settings, you'll either see ".exe" on the end or not. If you see it, keep it there, if you do not see it, do not add it.
|Resizing method:||Compression quality:|
|Size: x||Custom quality (1-100):|
Rename to: PhotoResize400.exe
For more advanced scenarios, you'll need to use the command line parameters. Learn about them on the advanced settings page.
Picture Resizer does not limit the number of images resized at once, but there are other factors that may impose a limit.
When files are dragged and dropped on the tool icon, Windows Explorer sends the names of the dropped files as command line parameters to Picture Resizer. Windows has a limit on the total length of command line. If the filenames(+paths) are longer than the limit, Explorer will not run the tool and display an error instead.
To work around this limitation, drag and drop entire folders instead of individual files or place your files closer to to the root of your hard drive (e.g. place them into C:\imgs instead of C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\My Documents\My Pictures\Vacation\).
A general purpose batch image processor and retouching software.
An easy to use freeware image editor with layers.
A bugfix update 6.0.1 was released on February 13th 2012.
Version 2.0 introduces a new usage scenario. The tool supports intergration with Windows shell and allows you to define one or more commands that are added to Windows Explorer context menu (the menu that appears when you right-click on a file). Separate each switch by space, just like on command line.
To add a command to context menu, start the tool and type the name of the command to the "Command name" field and additional command line options (if you want to use them) to the "Additional options" field. Finally click the "Add to context menu" button.
To remove all created commands, click the "Remove all".
Version 2.0 allows you to add multiple commands to context menu of .jpg files.
PhotoResize was recently updated to be compatible with Vista Explorer - you can use it as a replacement for the missing Image Resizer PowerToy.
Open Windows Explorer and go to your "Send To" folder (usually C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\SendTo).
Place one or more configured copies of Picture Resizer there. Items placed in this folder will appear in Send To
context menu as demonstrated on the picture.
Tip: you may change the tool's name to for example "Resize to 400.exe" instead of "PhotoResize400.exe".

Looks good. Found this site from here: http://www.computing-tips.net/Software/getme.php?r=14
been using it for a year every day, can't live without it
My bad; I think I missed the
-a+, -a-, -a* (preserve (..) compression in JPG files)
in the advanced configuration.. (from keeping the filesize quality 60 to become filesize quality 90+, which is not possible without reference material)
Could the target filename include 'quality kept at x', for example a quality x=59 jpeg original, if the tool is named 'G', 'H', or 'Q80', as standard? The amazing IrfanView adds 30kB to an 18kB jpeg (Q81 to Q100).
Linux port is divers, dependant, and drag 'n drop on desktop is not standard (not working), but I like it. (Mac is well thought out too, simple, not simplistic, my brother recently bought a Macbook.)
These switches only control whether the arithmetic compression is used instead of Huffman compression.
This tool's main purpose is resizing images, so choosing the output quality makes sense. Even selecting higher quality makes sense if you resize a 10 megapixel photo to a reasonable size usable on web.

Good job.it work in work in Win10. Great & Easy
