Batch Picture Resizer is a new easy and user-friendly resize pictures and watermarking tool. It helps you to resize large groups of pictures in one go for the purpose of sending via email, publishing on the web or just to save space on your hard drive.

Batch Picture Resizer works with the major image formats (including JPG, BMP, RAW, TIFF, GIF, PNG, PCX, TGA etc). It can resize pictures with high quality, and flip, mirror or rotate them without losing quality (lossless rotation). The picture resizer offers users a one-click function to optimize color levels or convert pictures to grayscale, while text or image watermarks can be added to protect images.

Hi,

I found another watermarking application that does batch watermarking (upto 20 images) and it has lot of options to customize the watermark.

http://watermark-images.com

They also have a google gadget that you can embed into your webpages/blogs.

#47 Mike, Thank you, this is as I suspected but did want some additional feedback which you have done a great job in explaining.

After trying the software,

Pro's

1. You can resize in mass your pictures
2. You can add a watermark
3. The product leaves a small footprint and uses little resources.

Con's
1. You can resize but not revert with out quality loss as #47 also confirmed.
2. Unless you are willing to give up your originals then you will not save space, but in fact will be adding as you need to make another folder to hold your newly resized images.
3. The watermark feature is extremly limited and of poor quality actually one of the poorest quality watermarks I have seen in any software.
4. The ability to preview is extremely limited so your on a wing and a prayer.
5. There are plenty of free products already providing these features and more.
6. If you need a professional looking watermark you'll need to
a.) Make your own
b.) Use the built in tool, I recommend against this as the quality and ability to view it are so limited.
c). Have to purchase yet another product with adds to the overall size of your applcations which I had hoped would be an all in one tool.
7. Not enough useful tools to make it competitive to even the free software. No auto adust, no left or right clockwise adjustment, not way to in effect enhance the quaility of the pictures as other software provides.

Overall: I give this a thumbs down for its lack of features, I think the company would do well to bundle this with a better picture viewer, better watermarking tool and enhance the GUI to make it easier to use. You also have several other products that could be bundled with this one to make it a more useful product.

When I visted the company website, your Batch Picture Resizer screenshots look nothing like what I have downloaded today. The Screenshots look much better than the actual product.

I appreciate the opportunity to test the software, but I will be unistalling as many others have mentioned there are free products that simply do a better job.

If it were me, I'd bundle many of your products especially if you want to make claims that your software is on par with Adobe. You've got a foundation I suggest you build upon it and then it would be worth the asking price.

Thanks again to all users, GOTD and of course Softorbits.

Good luck and I look forward to what you will do with the great comments posted here today.

xnview is by far the best image utility I've come across. It's very fast and powerful.

Open xnview & go to "Tools" - "Multi Convert..." to convert all of your images in a batch. I say "convert" rather than "resize", because resizing your images is only 1 of many options that you can apply to your images.

If this is the 1st time you have used xnview, I would recommend going into options and making the following changes:
- Disable browser on start up
- Change keyboard/mouse settings to preferences

All programs here that require "Activate.exe" I delete upon opening the zip file. Active.exe does not work well with most firewall and anti-virus software plus it seems to fail about half the time. I am not giving Active any online access permissions since it is reported as a virus.

IrFanView is much more flexable if a bit too complicated, it does do a lot more. Watermark placement isn't much better though.

#49 never heard of Irfanview need to pay until your post, if you're talking about the CAD plugin, it stated as shareware and I think that's 3rd party developed, when you have such need you can pay for their service, it's made available as a service, I don't see anything wrong with that, you don't "need" to pay if no need for that plug-in.

Now I need to check out if Picasa can view CAD or not, feel free to share good alternative.

Being a bit of an image manipulation buff I tend to do my image resizing one image at a time rather than batch resizing. as my handle says, I'm a GIMP user which is just as good if not better than Photoshop without the huge price tag (GIMP is always free). You can also get a batch resizer script for GIMP that allows you to do much more than today's giveaway. That being said... today's giveaway is very useful for quick and dirty resizing and watermarking. To the developers I would suggest better folder recognition and more uniform watermarking as well as the option to add more than one of each type of watermark.

#8: "I’d prefer that GAOTD would post a link to their toolbar-like program rather than packing it into the app, that seems a little less than honest to me…."

IMHO anyway, *ONLY* if/when you can't say no. One person's cake is another's poison.

* * *

#25: "What is the meaning of “resize” here? Does it mean one can, say, resize or enlarge a photo from 100×100 pxl to 1500×1500 pxl without losing resolution/quality?"

Vector graphics can be re-sized however you want with no quality loss -- photos &/or video can't be re-sized without loosing something... down-sizing isn't as bad as up-sizing, since you're throwing out pixels rather than trying to create them out of thin air, but either way there's a bit of guesswork going on & quality lost. Otherwise they wouldn't need Blu Ray, would they? ;-)

* * *

#30: "64-bit???"

Shouldn't be any problems as noted by #17.

64 bit versions of Windows, like the win7 64 bit RC so many are running, normally work just fine with any & all 32 bit software. The *oversimplified* difference is 64 bit software has 64 places to look for &/or supply data -- 32 bit only has 32. 64 bit software has problems working with 32 bit apps & vice versa -- you normally can't use 32 bit plug-ins in a 64 bit graphics app, or the reverse -- but for something self-contained like Batch Picture Resizer, should be no problem at all.

That said, if an app includes driver software, those drivers have to be 64 bit to install & work in 64 bit Windows, more security measures are built into 64 bit Windows itself, & there is an added branch in both the Windows folder & the registry. Put all 3 together & it means while whatever app will work well enough once installed, getting it installed in 64 bit Windows can sometimes be a bit more work.

* * *

#31: "I would like to resize a group of pictures, watermark and upload to a given website and then revert back to the original size and keep the watermark."

No matter what software you use, you'll lose image data when/if you resize smaller, again if you re-compress after adding watermarks, & again if you re-size the pics with the watermarks. The last step would be particularly lossy if you up-size, since you no longer have all the original pixels to work with. If quality really matters, you'll want to add any watermarks to the originals, & save them at the larger size rather than up-sizing the web versions. You might save quality by working in a lossless format like tif until the final output, so you're not re-compressing more than needed. And whatever your workflow, unless you use something like an image editor with layers, you will wind up with 3 sets of images -- with layers [or objects] you could turn the watermarks invisible for example, with 1 larger file per image rather than 2 mid-sized versions.

* * *

In my view, Picassa 3 (get Picassa free from Google) does a very good job of manipulating photos, with an option to resizing a selected group of photos to export into a (user defined) folder for attaching to an email, or it can insert them directly into a new email. Picassa can also be set to find and work on photos stored anywhere on your computer.

Last night around 3:30am (EST) I was post #8 here. At the time, I was rather disgruntled at todays offering due to the CPU hike, and locking completely. After sleeping, I came back to read the reviews and saw that the program seems to work ok for everyone else (basically).
Once again, I fired up the program, but this time, I used jpg's that
are similar in size range rather that small & large jpg's such as those I tried to convert last night. In this manner, the program did work, though honestly, I prefer Irfanview's interface and speed, etc.
Evidently this program has problems when a large jpg such as a full webpage screengrab is loaded into it. I noticed a flickering as the program locks up after loading the large jpg.
I can only give this one a neutral bent-thumb today, because it might be to a liking for some folks, but I'm not all that excited.
Thanks for reading my rant, and have a nice day !

When it comes to being intuitive [where 100% or perfect = everything's where it should be & no need for help] Batch Picture Resizer is about average... only the Detail view shows image's *Before* dimensions, the Options dialog could be clearer, & descriptions should be self-explanatory. Feature-wize, it has quite a few resizing algorithms to select from, it has some watermarking features, & it's fast -- missing is the ability to rotate individual pictures (it's all or nothing), and you have no control over the color balance settings, just on or off for *all* images. I find it annoying that installing Batch Picture Resizer can add itself to the shell or context menus, with no way to turn this integration on/off in the program itself. If you need/want a bulk image resizer, & you like no-frills, bare-bones simple software, you'll probably like, may even love it.

The program itself is small at ~2 MB in it's program folder, & an excellent candidate to make portable with the Portable App Creator downloaded from the forums at portableapps.com [Note: you don't have to add the portable apps program to your USB stick to use software in the portable apps format -- the reason for using the creator program is to allow Batch Picture Resizer to find the key in a file on the USB stick rather than in the registry.]

#38, That's not a very helpful answer. #25, What you ask for is impossible. When a picture is taken, the definition (the dots per inch) is set when the image is recorded. The definition can be reduced, but not increased (unless you are watching people in the movies do it, they can do anything).

Now, watch. 50 people will tell you how wrong I am.

as a freeware alternative (resizing and watermarking is just one of many operations available for batch processing) I prefer and recommend Xnview. Maybe less known, but IMHO as good (if not better) as Irfanview. Rated Very good (4.0/5) by 555 Softpedia users, receved 5/5-Softpedia Pick and 5/5-Excellent Editor's review award:

It's very hard not to mention Irfanview whenever any light picture editor/batch converter is spoken of. It has been free forever, does everything this does and probably more, and will probably be free forever. It's hard to beat Irfanview. It also has quite a broad spectrum of filters than can be added.

Since I am NOT affiliated with GOTD in any way, I'd like to remind folks that the GOTD forum has an area for recommended free alternatives. While it feels good to put it down here in comments, it will do more good to put it down there. When I am looking for alternatives for a program, it is very easy to go to the forum and scroll through the threads. Looking through comments, I have to find an older giveaway that does what I need before I can scroll through the comments. I have to think that others would appreciate being able to go through the forum as well.

p.s. Please make the headers generic by software use, if possible, so that it can be found easier.

Thank you!!

I'm a bit confused, I thought one point of resizing is to allow you to add a watermark the same size on each picture and then revert back to your original size.

To the group and company representative if I'm doing something wrong please let me know.

I tried to resize, Ok got that then add the watermark which is very limited and then resize back to the original. This is not working out.

So. If I want to resize for a project, I need to recreate all involved photos and can't revert back to the original size. This seems contraditory to the webpage site description where it says it will save space on your hard drive as now I have two sets of pictures, my orignials (that I do wish to keep) and the resized and watermarked pictures.

It would seem to me a revert back to the original size is needed so that you could add a watermark the same size and location of your chosing.

Agan, if I'm missing something please let me know. If it the free software is already doing this then it does not seem cost effective as so many do the same for free.

I do wish some in the group would refrain from saying we are lucky because it it free. It is not free, GOTD pays for it and often many of us try these programs just for the enjoyment of testing and should we run accross a great program we like, we do get to keep it.

Nothing here is free, GOTD pays, the company gets feedback as well and I could easily download and not make any comments for the company which would be a diservice to them.

I will get off of my soapbox but please if the testing group knows if the pictures can be reverted or if the watermark is the same size on all pictures. My testing showed it is not. I would like to resize a group of pictures, watermark and upload to a given website and then revert back to the original size and keep the watermark.

I'm still testing and asking for guidance so I will wait to give a full report until I know more.

Thanks to all, esp. to GOTD and of course Softorbits for the testing opportunity I hope to report back soon.

GAOTD is a great resource...unfortunately, there are numerous freeware and open source apps similar out there and not only are they free, but they do it better. Seen several listed here already and there is still a considerable amount of time left to download. One good thing I note here, usually there are only a few comments. Means people are actually getting here and once here are staying long enough to share their thoughts...no matter whether right or wrong. I applaud the group...

Thanks to the GOATD.

As I was not aware there will be a free software I would get for batch re-sizing, as I was used to send photographs to my head office and used to re-size in my own way as the following, which was a little time taking but a good free one we can do with the Power Point. If any of you want to try, can try the following procedure too…

Go to MS Power Point, open a blank slide and copy a JPEG file and paste on the slide and drag equally to all the corners and then save as JPEG format, u will definitely find a huge difference in SIZE.

Anyways, when we have a free software offered today by GOATD, why should we make our life little difficult….

Thanks & Regards,

I won't have time to test this until later, and everyone has different needs in an image resizer, but I didn't notice anything on the website about being able to perform some common resize operations, such as only resizing images larger than some limit, or recompressing images exceeding some filesize limit (not dimension limits). Regarding Software Informer, apart from the warnings some here have mentioned about converting your giveaways to trials, I never like tools which try to figure out what third-party software and drivers need updating. I looked on their website, and half of the things I checked, their "latest" version was older, not newer, than my current version. Speaking of which, Adobe has apparently jumped on the generic update-everything bandwagon. Acrobat Reader had an update, and apparently their latest auto-update crap decided that I also needed new Flash Players. Well, that failed, breaking Flash. They've also changed their website. You used to be able to download Flash Player and install it outside of the browser, which works on my PC, whereas trying to update it within a running browser usually fails, even with closing all other tabs. Anyway, you used to be able to select "other OS or browser" and download the installers. Now, I have to download the IE Flash Player from Firefox (or other non-IE browser) and download the non-IE Flash Player from within IE. That gives me the external installers which I can run outside of the browsers, which always works on my PC. I hope the moderators let this pass, as I'm sure others will encounter the same problems. Oh, and Flash was one of the apps for which the Software Informer website had an older version being listed as the current.

To clarify what I meant about the watermark size issue in my CONS section - because the re-sized pics were all the same pixel size, I expected the watermarks to also be the same size on all pics, which was not the case. This is completely different from what Ashraf said in his CONS section. That's what happens when I'm still half asleep and half awake early in the morning.....sorry about that Ashraf & others.

*** Allows for four resizing/cropping options to include: Maintain Original Aspect Ratio, Switch Width and Height to Match Long Sides, Smart Cropping (Result In Exact Width and Height), Do Not Resize When Original Size is Less Than a New One.

*** Allows for Rotate/Auto-Balance/Grayscale options.

*** Allows User to choose location of output placement folder for resulting re-sized images.

*** Allows User to Watermark Re-Sized Images.

*** Allows User to add/select individual or multiple pictures to preview pane for re-sizing.

*** Allows User to select entire folder of pictures to preview pane for re-sizing.

*** Allows for various format options for picture preview pane.

*** Allows for TIF/GIF Compression options.

*** Allows for JPEG - Baseline, Progressive, Optimize options.

*** Allows for X & Y Resolution options.

*** Allows for Interpolation options.

*** Allows user to choose the "use folder structure in output folder" option.

ACTUAL PROGRAM OPERATION: I successfully batch re-sized and watermarked 30 JPEG images (23.27 MB total size) in about 30 seconds. Resulting quality of re-sized images was equal to quality of original source images.

CONS:

*** Program allowed only certain folders to be selected for batch re-sizing of pictures. In other words, not all folders on my computer system were recognized by the program. Workaround solution for this is simply to highlight every picture in the folder and select/add all chosen photos en masse to the program preview pane in this way.

*** Yes, as Ashraf said, the watermarks were not all uniform in size on resulting re-sized pictures.

*** I agree with Ashraf, the GUI could be a much more visually appealing.

IN SUMMARY: - Overall, a definite two thumbs up for today's GiveAway. Thanks much, GOTD and SoftOrbits, for this nice program.

Free Alternative:
Microsoft Image Resizer: This PowerToy enables you to resize one or many image files with a right-click.

Here is the link for Microsoft image resizer.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/Downloads/powertoys/Xppowertoys.mspx

It is the 11th download link on the right side of the page.

After it is installed, you access it via the right click menu.

It is very easy to use. Open the folder with the pictures. Change view to "details". Left click the first image, then hold down the shift key and click the last image. All the images will now be highlighted. Right click on any of the now highlighted pictures and choose "resize pictures". For e-mailing, select "small". It will now create a copy of all the images (in the same folder, each converted new picture's name will have "small" at the end. Your original images are preserved (for printing, etc.). After you send the pictures, they are removed from the folder, so you don't end up with duplicates of every picture, wasting space on your hard drive. If you want to send them again at a later date, just repeat the process. It only takes a few seconds. One important note: you must right click on one of the highlighted images, NOT in the white space below, otherwise the "resize image" right click option will not be there.

There are better free image resizer tools out there. If you still run XP than Microsoft PowerToys offer a very basic free version.

You can download here : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

Not a bad piece of software,have got too many of these apps so will have to decide which ones to keep,dont know about this one yet...Why has gaoth starting bundling software Informer with everything,I already use It and Its ok If you like updating your software,but 99.9% of the programs gaotd give away cant be updated,or If you did,you would end up with a newer version but on trail,so If you do start using this program dont start updating everything it tells you to or you will end up with tears in your eyes.
Example.I scan my computer and It finds 54 updates but only 6 can be updated,the other 48 are either giveaways or games like,I have grand theft auto san andreas and this program tells me i can update it to gta iv if you press the update button you are taken to the checkout at rockstar to pay for it.
