Resize Sense: Tips

This page describes how to perform several common tasks with Resize Sense. Only the resizing configuration is described. See the Quick Start Guide for the general workflow description.

Reduce image size by half

Choose the resizing type Fixed width and/or height. Enter 50 as the width or height, or both. Choose the size unit percent.

Crop images without resizing

Choose the resizing type Crop only. To crop freely, uncheck the Constrain original aspect ratio option, and leave both "ratio" input fields empty. To crop with a specific aspect ratio, such as 4/3, enter this ratio. You can also constrain the original image aspect ratio.

Prepare for a 4x6 print

Save in multiple sizes/formats

Sometimes it is useful to save every image in multiple sizes, and possibly also formats. For example, if you have an online photo gallery, you are likely to always save every image in at least two sizes: the full size and the thumbnail. You probably save both in JPEG, but might want to reduce the JPEG quality (increase compression) for thumbnails to speed up the web page loading. Resize Sense helps to automate all these tasks:

Create frames around images

Resize Sense does not have a special framing feature. However, you can enclose images in simple rectangular frames with a solid color using the Add borders for large images setting.

Set the image size larger than the original. The easiest way suitable for variable sizes is to define the size in percents (set it to over 100%). Then choose Add borders for the If original image is too small setting. Choose the desired frame color as Border color. Save, and you will get framed images.

For example, using the Fixed width and/or height resizing type, set the width to 110%, and leave the height blank. This will create a frame whose horizontal borders are 5% of the image height and vertical borders are 5% of the image width each. If the borders must have the same size, you will probably need to calculate sizes manually and configure the width and height separately, unless the images are square.
