Resize Sense (Macworld Gem 2012) is a batch image resizer/cropper/converter known for its flexibility and convenience. To illustrate its flexibility: using custom size and saving presets, you can easily resize many images, each one to several different sizes, and save them in various formats with different filename patterns. All this in a single batch operation, in a few minutes!
You can also crop and straighten individual images manually if required, and copy these settings to other images. Resize Sense lets you decide what to do if, for example, the image aspect ratio changes: crop, deform, or add borders. Or when the image is too small for the requested size: enlarge, extend canvas, skip, or just keep the original. Resize Sense also supports batch image transformations such as rotation and flipping.
Want to send a number of images by e-mail? Show them at any time to your friends on a mobile device? Put them on a website with strict size requirements? Use Resize Sense to achieve the size you need, for many images at once! Save your settings as presets, and next time you will not even need to enter them again!
Resize Sense has a companion application, our flexible batch image watermarking utility Watermark Sense. The two applications are mutually integrated to act as a single application if needed, while keeping things so simple and straightforward as possible. Together they form a flexible and efficient image processing toolset for web publishing and similar needs, for those who need to obtain top quality results quickly and easily.
- Flexible resizing options. Resize Sense is designed to fulfill any batch resizing need as conveniently as possible.
- Custom user presets. Performing repetitive tasks? No need to enter the same settings every time! Save a preset for every task once, and reuse it again and again! Resize Sense supports size presets (for resizing settings) and saving presets (for file naming and format settings). You can even apply multiple size presets to every image!
- Manual per-image, per-preset crop & straighten adjustment. Most other batch image resizers would at best allow you to align the crop rectangle to the left/right/top/bottom, but a better control is often required.
- Batch image cropper & straightener functionality. Resize Sense can be used as a bulk image cropper and straightener, because it supports copying & pasting of the manual crop & straighten configuration between images.
- Batch image format converter functionality. Resize Sense can be used to convert multiple images from any format supported by the operating system to JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, and BMP.
- Batch image transformations. Rotation by 90 and 180 degrees, horizontal and vertical flipping.
- Live final image preview. You can see immediately how the final image will look after cropping, extending with solid borders, distorting, etc.
- Simple, intuitive, self-explanatory user interface. We have made a great effort to ensure that this complex professional tool is as simple and intuitive as possible. And we keep working on the usability improvement!
