Retro looks for stylish photos!

A Batch Picture Resizer is software that anyone who works with digital photos will find extremely useful. Many people use expensive and complex image editing packages just to resize photos and resolve other simple issues because it has not occurred that there is a far cheaper, quicker and more efficient solution. Also, resizing pictures manually, one by one, can be vastly time consuming, especially when you have hundreds, let alone thousands of photos that need resizing. One solution is a powerful little user-friendly application called Batch Picture Resizer.

With this simple and cheap program, you can resize any amount of images quickly. The picture resizer can be used to reduce the size of your photos so that they are more appropriate for publishing on the Internet, emailing to family and friends or simply to save space on your hard drive. The highest quality possible is also preserved in the files. Batch Picture Resizer also provides the possibility to change the color levels of your pictures or add text and watermarks to group of photos quickly.

to those who have installed previous version of softorbits' batch picture resizer, you need to uninstall previous version and reboot computer before activating current offering.
(i had batch picture resizer version on april 4, 2014 and installed latest version to another folder with resulting activation failure 'license is already used')

Thanks to SoftOrbits and GOTD.
Easily downloaded, installed and activated (registered).

Tested this with three sample photos.
Result: Excellent.
This product is exceptionally good, complete in features and easy to use.
I have 11 other image resizers and comparing with them, this is the best.

Very good user friendly easy to use user interface in plain black+white font.

To answer Billy D's question, this product is intelligent enough to sense a file of the same name. Then a pop up window will apeear to ask the user to choose his actions.
...................
File Exists
The file below has already existed.
[File location in you drive is shown]
Would you like to overwrite it?
Overwite
Overwrite All
Rename

.....................

Of course you can always output to a specific other folder, which I always do.

This supports drag and drop when adding files to rename.

You can choose:

New Width %
New Height %
Maintain original aspect ratio
Predefined height
Switch width and height to match long sides
Smart cropping (result in exact width and height)
Do not resize when original size is less then a new one

If you click on [Pick a Standard Size], a scroll list appears.
For it you can choose:

You can click on [Use Canvas Resize]
This is very powerful. Seldom seem in other image resizers.

You can specify a new canvass size for the resulting image and put your newly resized photo inside it. You can also specify the background colour of the canvass.


You can rotate the photo to the left, to the right, flip horizontally, flip vertically, and even choose you exact user specified angle of rotation.

You can convert the format of the images:
Use the original format
JPG JPEG Bitmap
GIF CompuServe Bitmap
BMP Windows Bitmap
PNG Portable Network Graphics
PCX Paint Brush
TIFF TIFF Bitmap
TGA TARGA Image


The Effects only offer two: Greyscale and Normalise colours.

The Tools offer a very basic Rename Files feature and a good Watermark feature.

Oh, you can also choose to enable the software's features in your PC's context menu, if you want to. I rarely allow this because with numerous programs in the PC, the context menu becomes crowded and messy.

I'd like to mention pixresizer. Resizes 1 photo or complete folder. Free and excellent. I have been using it for years. Built-in image viewer and conversion between image formats. Readme file with full explanation included.

I don't see any option to keep the original photos. This means that if you screw up with the conversion that you are missing your originals. Would someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Once again, Always backup your originals!

Hi and thanks for the offer!

I would like to know, how I can choose between overwriting or saving pictures with new filename.
On the developers site I can reed:
"Prompt-free overwrite or saving into new files".

So how will I decide between two options when I´ll not be prompted?

Thanks a lot for answers!

Mona

No change log on their web site. (I have version 5.) Surely a bit remiss for a mature software company not to include such obvious information?

If you have MS Office, the Picture Manager which comes with it can perform customized batch resizing quickly and easily through the Export command (which, incidentally, can also be used to generate PowerPoint presentations automatically from selected images).

Resizing upwards is always problematic, though, so today's giveaway with its choice of algorithms offers more possibilities in that area.

Another freeware program, and the one I have used for several years now, is PLiska - http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Graphic/Graphic-Editors/PLiska-Image-Resizer.shtml. Simple to use, handles 1 to many photos at a time. It has never failed me.

A strong software that can batch resize, watermark, convert format, rename photos...The quality of the output pictures depends on the input ones. Basicly, it can keep original quality and easy to use for novices. But for me, I don't like its interface. Uninstalled, thanks anyway.

Also there are similar alternatives:
Picresize: http://www.picresize.com
Fotosizer: http://www.fotosizer.com
Faststone: http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm
Watermark Software: http://www.watermark-software.com

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. A clean install.

A Russian company from Smolensk with phone&fax.

We had had the same version 6.2 on October 2, 2014. Here are the old reviews:
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/batch-picture-resizer-6-2/

I installed again to see, if there is anything new... the EXE has a current date. Don't see any real changes.

I made some examples (increase by 400% from the famous pizza files) to show the different effects of resizing:

Lanczos:

Catrom:

Bicubic (soft)
http://i.imgur.com/axRuq1a.png

And you have the choice between 15 more interpolation algorithms:
http://i.imgur.com/3oLh5uS.png

Test, what is the best interpolation for your kind of picture. Have fun. From my last comment:
"A well made small utility. Does what it claims. And a claim (*) No special knowledge required – that’s correct if you use the default values.

Uninstalled via reboot, I'll use my existing software for that.

> Test, what is the best interpolation for your kind of picture.

Increasing image size is nearly always a bad idea, unless special information not already implicit can be applied.
Quite a lot of research shows that, properly implemented, Lanczos resampling gives most generally preferred results.
With its good Lanczos implementation, IrfanView is for me worth also using on Linux (via WINE)
and OS X (via WineBottler).

PhotoScape should be in your freeware list.

Also there are few more considerable freeware programs in this category -

*Fotor - http://www.fotor.com/windows/ ( an excellent program for collage creation but it also supports batch processing which can help you for Scenes, Effects, and Borders, as well as Batch resizing, renaming, and file conversion. => http://www.fotor.com/windows/user-guide.html )

* Multiple Image Resizer .NET - https://www.multipleimageresizer.net/features.aspx

Downloaded and installed Batch Picture Resizer 6.2, nice application.
However:
So far, I have used every application named on this page, PhotoScape is a very good tool. However, the complete suite of XnView software which is free for personal or non-commercial use is outstanding, and my first choice (and available for many platforms). Besides the normal conversion and organizing of images, I also do some converting of objects between racing simulators, XnView has features that most high end applications don't include.
In conclusion, I personally use both XnView and PhotoScape as my go to tools for resizing and conversion.

Lets not forget this free tool - GIMP and its BIMP plugin http://registry.gimp.org/node/26259. However these to programs may be a little to complex for the casual user, and that is where this giveaway will shine.

Reply   |   Comment by Webwizardry  –  8 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

Good comment regarding GIMP with BIMP plugin, I use GIMP frequently, great software. However, as stated GIMP with BIMP is a little more difficult to master.

Reply   |   Comment by Olob  –  8 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

@Webwizardry, GIMP (with BIMP plugin) already in my first comment :)
@Jahid, thanks for the great list :)
my favorite: FastStone Photo Resizer(portable version available) http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm
same company more powerful product FastStone Image Viewer: http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

also in my fist comment, some tools have portable version too :)
