Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

I've been using Batch Image Resizer by BinaryMark since it was given out here quite a ways back and I'm completely happy with it. That being said, my PSP also does a batch process where I can resize or even add a watermark or whatever so I don't really see a need (for me) to try this product. I appreciate those sharing the free alternatives tho as I do have others ask me in my graphics group for programs like this, that are free.

Thanks GOTD for another great piece of software and many thanks to Giovani for all his wonderful suggestions on freeware alternatives.
I use Photoscape as my main photo editing software which I highly recommend but I will also look into some of the other programs suggested here as they also sound very good and may have more features. Thanks GOTD!

James @ #28,
I use Photo! Editor for relatively lossless resampling. When the 'resample' button is hit, a new window opens showing a screen representing your monitor's resolution. You can then resize an image to best fit your desktop background.
Google 'peditor.inst', but be aware that there may be 'add-on' toolbars as part of the package. You have the option to uncheck these during installation.
I have used this program for years now and it still works perfectly on Win7 64. There is a more modern version with bells & whistles, but I still prefer the lightweight older program. I have more complicated graphics software if I need it, but this is my go-to for most simple tasks.

I've been using Multi Resizer Net since it was given away here. It's been basically pretty good and this application is better than it in many ways it does not equal MRN's functionality.

Errors: Normolize is misspelt it is NORMALIZE
Message cannot be turned off. FINISHED! I don't need that nuisance message.
Do you want to open the destination folder? NO. And let me turn that off.
No ability to just pick the picture from the ADD area and delete it either by clicking on a X or hitting delete.

There are more. But that's it for now.

Finally, my long search for a program able to resize and crop picture to fit the aspect ratio of my picture frame, is over. I've tried all the freebies even Xnwhatever and none would resize without stretching or somehow distorting the picture. Just one request, I would like to be able to save and recall a "Job Profile", so I can preset the settings for my job.

QUESTION for those furnishing freeware alternatives to today's giveaway? Do any of them -- or any other you may know about -- offer the ability to imitate what is or was standard in Apple OS, where you could click on a photo file in explorer mode (I don't know what they call the "Windows Explorer" app in Macintosh), and it would give you a visual overlay of guidelines for your screen's background dimensions so you could resize all or a desired specific part of the image and turn it into a desktop background image without ever having to open it in some image-editing software?

Thank you.

Too expensive for too little.

1) Photoscape.org - Best there is, almost photoshop's options for batch edits
2) XnView - Needs no introduction
3) Gimp
...and so on...

I've been really happy with a previous GOTD, Easy Watermark Studio. They have a free Lite version.

Did not see my favorite program for this mentioned (if it was my apologies), have used this one for years and it is free for personal or educational use.

I use picture resizer 6, nothing to instal just put the file in an accessible place ie: desktop and rename the program to the size you want your pics. eg: i want to resize my pic to 1024x768 all i do is rename the application to 1024.exe and drag your pics onto the icon. The only draw back is that it only resizes jpg but thats what 99% of my pics are anyways.

I have been very faithful to one of the best of its kind, Pixresizer for years: http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm . But I found even a better one: fotosizer: http://www.fotosizer.com/CheckForUpdate.aspx?v= Both are free. I take the opportunity to say a very big big thank you to Giovanni for all its contributions.

Do any of the above programs allow you to resize by inches instead of pixels?

For the price that they are asking for this software, maybe offer an additional software with this software, batched together or added additionally. Maybe a water-mark software or a photo retoucher to boot. Considering that there are other free or cheaper software out there, that does about the same job!

Thanks GOTD for bringing up the subject, and thanks Giovani, for doing what you do.

For the past three days I have had a tab in Chrome open to Google search results for "Free batch image resizer." I am exactly the customer that SoftOrbits is looking for.

I have a large number of high-res photos that I want to use with the "Match Photo" feature of SketchUp (formerly from Google, now from Trimble, still free). All my original camera images have far more resolution than I need and multiple large images are resulting in a large, slow-to-load, SketchUp file.

I own PhotoShop but I have never learned how to create batch processing. I thought a dedicated tool would solve my specific problem without my having to learn a difficult(?) part of PhotoShop.

My simple Google search did not produce any results that caught my attention immediately and I have been planning to test out two or three to compare features. I have about 60 files to resize so a few minutes of testing is a reasonable investment. A "perfect" tool would be worth $10 or $15.

When I first saw this GOTD offer, I was delighted, but the broken "keep aspect ratio" makes this a non-starter. No need to download it to even look for a workaround. That is something that should work out-of-the-box.

While it is not always true, it is human nature to suspect that if the marketing text and Help are full of errors, than the code is likely to be error-filled too. This example appears to confirm that prejudice.

Thank you, Giovani and everyone, for your useful search results and helpful comments. I am sure that I will find something that will serve my needs.

As #6 john mentioned Microsoft Image Resizer worked great, but is mot supported on Win7. Phish Photo Resizer is free lookalike that works on Vista and Win7 and it is really easy. Select the pictures you want to resize, right click and select Phish Image Resizer, it pops up and with a few clicks, you are done. It is available on cnet.


So if you just want to resize photos quick and easy Phish Image Resizer is your solution.

@moma I was going give up on this also when I couldnt get it
to resize without making it cut off the image. Finally
I checked the "switch width and height to match long sides"
and the "Smart cropping (result in exact width and height"
and now it seems to work . Lots of internal typos in this

I use Photoshop CS5 for this currently so finding a quicker
program would be great.
Jury is still out for me on this program. I found if I
selected :Use Canvas Resize: and then changed my mind the preview
never changed back until I closed out the program. The text/watermark
is a joke , no click and drag have to use X and Y cords.

I also tried the XNView listed above and found quirks for that also.
I just want a program that as easy to use as Photoshop images for
web and devices feature.

$30 for a photo Resizer is a ridiculous price for this program considering it does not even do this 1 function correctly.

Many good free functioning alternatives available. Zoner Phone Studio PRO (Just recently given away here) while not free in the Pro version IS FREE for the FREE Version and will Resize -but- I'm not sure if it will work in batches or not. From the Viewer Tab: Shift Select or Ctrl Select your photos you want go to Edit -> Resize then make your adjustments (on copies better) then down below where it would say Ok next to it select Apply to all.

Sorry not more comments on this BPR4.0 today but malfunctioning not even worth free.

Today we can find many excellent freeware LOSSLESS resizers.
Common resizers decompress jpg, resize, and recompress back. You may imagine the quality degradation.
Lossless resizer based on JPEG algorithm knowledge provides the conversion with no affect to quality.

What the developer states as a reason to buy (or use free or even try) the offered program is not convincing. Weak marketing?
No any statement "this resizer is lossless" (if somebody would offer today for money non-lossless converter it is a shame at all).

Seems to work fine on win7 64 bit home premium,resized 161 pics in about 45 seconds.A nice tool to compliment your graphics toolbox but not a do-all.Maybe that's why it's called resizer :-) . Thanks SOFTORBITS & GOTD for another usable tool in my quest for decent pics.

Works perfectly - able to keep aspect ratio on all pics during resizing. Can also rename, add watermark, save in a variety of formats, etc. Perhaps a little over-priced but OK for free.

#2 Moma, don't do it one at a time, take a look at the great features of Irfanview. It's the quickest, cheapest and most efficient alternative I've found.

Reply   |   Comment by Leuel  –  9 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+29)

I use irfanview which is free, so why I'd pay $30 for something less capable is a mystery.

@Moma: irfanview definitely keeps the aspect. You can also batch crop or (if you crop with negative values) increase canvas size.

As previously mentioned, XNView is a superb free alternative. As is FastStone Resizer (http://www.faststone.org).

Too many good free alternatives do the same thing, so I think I`ll pass on this one.

Downloaded and installed cleanly with no problems on my Vista 32bit HP laptop. Registered easily. GUI can be a little tricky and convoluted but with just a little playing around with it I was able to figure it out pretty easily. I resize pics all the time so I thought this would be a good program for me. I edited a batch of photos via the folder button. I chose to keep the original aspect ratio. Unfortunately when you input a value into the height or width box, the other is NOT changed automatically. My pictures came up squished even though I had the box checked to keep aspect ratio. I guess I will just have to suffer though resizing my photos one at a time with one of my other photo softwares.
