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 number 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.

I have for many, many years used PIXresizer for resizing to reduce and the best resizer to enlarge I use Reshade, also free. Can't beat em. Batch and all.

There are many issues with SoftOrbits software, I will not mention them here but the main one is de-activation of validly registered software after few months. Second problem is, they use the windows registry as scratch pad to trace around of every key stroke you do.
Going back to todays software, it assumes all of your pictures are of same quality and reduces the contrast and the depth of the colors just to save 10-20% of the size.
My question is why, the storage is cheap, I would pay for a software that will improve the quality even if the size is enlarged.

Not going to install it.

Have ben using the free Irfanview for years now and find it to be a most user friendly picture management software. It will batch resize or rename. It will do slideshows, show pages of thumbnails and provide means of moving or copying photos between folders with a few keystrokes. This program doesn't seem like it meets that functionality.

Thanks, but I'll pass. I still find the freeware windows powertoy sufficient for my needs

Downloaded and installed before I noticed this is from SoftOrbits. (I know, I should have checked). They consistently get bad feedback on this site and others because their "registered" software inexplicably reverts to TRIAL mode after a few months. One GOTD reviewer suggested that installing a new offering from SoftOrbits will delete the registration from others you have installed. I haven't tested this, and would appreciate feedback from anyone who has,

A Freeware alternative to this is the (little short of brilliant) FastStone Photo Resizer. Totally free, fast and flexible. I've used it for years, and only downloaded this today's giveaway to compare. Will report when I've done so.

More from above: a preliminary test (shrinking 70 photos from approx size 2400KB each to roughly 140KB, by selecting size 1920x1080 pixels) suggests that this offering is MUCH faster than FastStone Photo Resizer. 55 seconds versus 5 minutes 31.
Obviously, I haven't had time to check all the filters and compression options, I just accepted the defaults for both programs.
I can't see any difference in the resulting images. I will start using this program as my usual image shrinker.
I just hope that SoftOrbits doesn't sabotage my registration!

Thanks GOTD, and (fingers crossed) SoftOrbits.

HenryB, will FastStone Photo Resizer increase the dimensions of photos? Thanks.

HenryB, how can an open source free program be good?... Easy, it continually upgrades and is the works of many people around the world. It works well and will indeed do batches. I have used it for years. Hip Hip hooray for open source.

Nunya,
I have never tried, but I suspect not - or rather, it probably COULD enlarge, but would not enhance the image. That isn't what it was designed for, and it's not something I've ever needed to do. Good luck in your hunt.

Reply   |   Comment by HenryB  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Me again. I compared the current offering with FastStone program and found this to be MUCH faster. 5x. I submitted a more detailed message about an hour ago, but it seems to have been edited out. Can't think why.

HenryB,
sorry, but which one is faster - Fast Stone or SoftOrbit?

Ben C, Sorry. My sentence was ambiguous. I was in a hurry. Batch- P R is faster than FastStone, as I explained (better) in my earlier reply, which has somehow magically reappeared!

Just installed and tried! Bit of a fuss registration wise! The program offers nothing better than Fastone has been giving for years. Probably not as flexible or configurable.Removed from drive easily.

I know this particular developer has in the past been accused by several GOTDers of some weird ways of doing business, but nothing can be much weirder than today's: SoftOrbits' promotional giveaway of Batch Picture Resizer 7.2, six months after its promotional giveaway of Batch Picture Resizer, er, 7.3:

https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/batch-picture-resizer-7-3

One can only surmise that either SoftOrbits has been locked out of its own software due to the sudden inexplicable deactivation of 7.3, or that its invitation for helpful suggestions last time around resulted in the advice that the best way to improve 7.3 was to re-issue 7.2.

Either way, it's a mystery, one almost as baffling as why SoftOrbits still persists in trying to get a preposterous $40 for a one-trick function freely available in plenty of excellent $0 software already out there, most notably Irfanview with its simple open program / press b on keyboard / browse to folder / choose images / batch as required.

Thanks, GOTD, and thanks, SoftOrbits, but no thanks.

MikeR, Re version 7.3 on 18-10-2016 and version 7.2 of 27-4-2017. As it happens, I still have the trial of version 7.3 I downloaded on 18-10-2016. And a test on a clean virtual W7 32 showed I could activate it with today's key.

MikeR, I suspect that the version 7.3 giveaway was a special probable unanounced beta build for the giveaway, on archive.org there are captures shortly before and shortly after that previous giveaway and their batch resizer page showed only 7.2 as it does now.

I completely agree re Irfanview vs this expensive one trick pony.
