Resize Sense: Version History

The latest application versions working on older operating systems:

Resize Sense 2.3.1

  • Enable saving in the HEIC file format on macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) and later

Resize Sense 2.3.0

  • Optimize memory consumption when exporting large numbers of images in the Large Batch mode.
  • Fix the export progress indicator on macOS 10.15 (Catalina)
  • Several user interface improvements
  • The application is now notarized by Apple

Resize Sense 2.2.1

  • Option to preserve the output file creation date in exported images
  • Increase the image edge size limit from 20K to 30K pixels
  • Bug fixes

Resize Sense 2.2.0

  • Fixes for OS X El Capitan.
  • New saving options controlling the output filename letter case. Also available in saving presets.
  • Adds the subsecond time metadata field on a user request. This field can be used for the output filename generation.
  • Based on the user feedback, saving now works in the same way whether a single or multiple files are being saved.
  • Improves memory consumption.
  • Other minor improvements.

Resize Sense 2.1.4

  • Adds the GPS (location) metadata support.
  • Allows commas in the output filename pattern.
  • Adds options to remove IPTC and EXIF metadata.
  • Minor user interface improvements.
  • Fixes Image Browser selection when thumbnails are partly visible.
  • Fixes the first filename in the Image Browser that was sometimes not shown correctly.
  • Fixes the EXIF Artist metadata field that was not shown correctly on OS X 10.7 (Lion).

Resize Sense 2.1.3

Fixes the inter-application integration (opening resized images in Watermark Sense) in the Mac App Store version on OS X Yosemite.

Resize Sense 2.1.2

  • Bug fix: Preview sometimes crashed when manual cropping was enabled.
  • Bug fix: using non-RGB colors for added borders could crash the application.
  • Behavior improvement: when saving only one image and a file already exists, ask only once if it should be overwritten. Version 2.1.1 asked twice.

Resize Sense 2.1.1

  • New example preset for Twitter images.
  • Bug fix: the "Maximum file size" resizing type did not work properly when saving only one image.

Resize Sense 2.1.0

  • Introducing the Large Batch operation mode as an alternative to the old (now called Small Batch) mode. The latter is convenient when working with fewer images performing many customizations. The new Large Batch mode is designed for processing large numbers of images mostly without customizations.
  • More metadata fields available for the output filename generation.
  • Many user interface improvements.
  • Bug fixes, including the Image Browser scroll fix, which sometimes jumped up when the bottom is reached.

Resize Sense 2.0.0

We are excited to announce the new Resize Sense generation! It was not easy, but we decided to make this upgrade free to thank the users who supported us in the beginning. We hope that you appreciate our efforts and help us further develop Resize Sense by recommending it to your friends and making a Mac App Store review, if you purchased there.

Resize Sense 2 introduces a redesigned resizing and cropping engine which offers even more flexibility than before, can perform more tasks in a single batch operation. It also adds a number of features often requested by users, and presents a significantly improved user interface. In more detail:

  • A new highly requested feature: resizing to achieve the required maximum output file size on disk (in bytes).
  • Any cropping task can now be performed together with resizing, in a single step. Crop aspect ratio can be defined separately with all resizing types except the first two, that naturally restrict it. The cropped part plays the role of the original image when resizing.
  • There is no limitation on how small the cropped part can go, unless you choose not to save images that are too small for the requested size. If the cropped part is smaller than the requested size, it will behave just as a small original image.
  • Preview now shows either the final image or the original with crop rectangle, as you prefer.
  • When saving, it is now possible to replicate the original directory structure, starting from a defined location.
  • Use image IPTC/EXIF metadata in the saved file names.
  • Rename files within the application.
  • Bulk-edit the image resolution specification in the Info panel.
  • Significantly redesigned user interface, with a focus on convenience and clarity.
  • PDF User Guide delivered with the application.
  • Other minor improvements.
  • Bug fixes, mostly for OS X Lion.

Resize Sense 1.6.2

  • Urgent bug fix: sometimes crashed if original images had no resolution metadata.
  • Minor batch image metadata editor improvements.

Resize Sense 1.6.1

  • A user preference defining the default resolution value for new size presets.
  • Batch image metadata editor fix: the last edited field was not always updated.
  • Various minor improvements.

Resize Sense 1.6.0

  • Integrated batch image metadata (IPTC/EXIF) editor.
  • Watermark Sense integration.
  • User option to remember the last used size presets after relaunch.
  • User option to save compressed or uncompressed TIFF files.
  • User interface improvements and redesign.
  • Behavior improvements and bug fixes.
  • No more Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) support.

Resize Sense 1.5.1

  • Urgent bug fix: the redesigned Preview broke the crop alignment configuration in version 1.5.0. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Minor bug fixes for Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
  • Minor interface improvements.

Resize Sense 1.5.0

This major update focuses on usability, further improving the user interface flexibility, efficiency, and convenience. It adds a number of features requested by the users.

  • Completely redesigned Preview with zooming support and other improvements.
  • Resized images can be saved by dragging them to Finder.
  • Resized image can be dragged to another application supporting image dropping.
  • Resized image can be copied to the system clipboard and pasted in another application supporting image pasting.
  • Images can be reordered in the browser. Combined with saving with sequence numbers, this can be used to reorder saved images.
  • The crop & straighten settings can be copied between images of different sizes. This is only possible with the Crop only resizing type, when the crop aspect ratio is not defined, and the image is not straightened.
  • Changed the demo mode restriction in the non-Mac App Store version. Images can now be saved with a watermark in demo mode.
  • User interface improvements.
  • Bug fixes.

Resize Sense 1.4.0

This major update brings the application batch resizing capabilities to a new level. Combined with other new features, Resize Sense becomes even more flexible than before, can perform a lot more work in a single batch operation. In more detail, this update offers the following:

  • Saving presets. Save common file naming and format settings as custom user presets. Assign saving presets to your size presets to define how images of particular size should be saved. You can now save images in different sizes and formats in a single batch operation!
  • New resizing type Fixed Megapixel Count: define the required image size in megapixels.
  • New ways to handle small images: in addition to up-sampling or skipping them, you can now extend them with borders to achieve the desired size, or just copy originals. Copying originals saves you from manual management of small images in a batch.
  • Transparent borders (in addition to solid color) can now be added to the image to fix its aspect ratio or when it is too small.
  • Batch image flipping and 180 degree rotation.
  • Constrain original aspect ratio option in several resizing types. Disabling this option allows you to crop freely and resize in a single run.
  • Manual crop&straighten adjustment is now preserved (correctly adjusted) after rotation and flipping operations.
  • Copying, pasting, and resetting crop&straighten settings can now be performed both for the current and all size presets.
  • Saving in the original (automatically deduced) image format, or in a defined alternative if unsupported.
  • User preference controlling the default target directory when saving a single file.
  • Also the Mac App Store version now remembers the last used saving directory (only on the latest OS X systems). You do not need to choose the same directory multiple times.
  • It is now allowed to interrupt saving.
  • Many usability improvements.
  • Bug fixes.

Resize Sense 1.3.1

  • High resolution Retina Display support. Fixed some important functionality such as cropping and mouse selection in Image Browser.
  • Fix: importing and some other image operations could be slowed down on Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion).
  • The main window layout is now user-configurable.
  • Remembers the Image Browser thumbnail size after relaunching.
  • Minor user interface improvements and bug fixes.

Resize Sense 1.3.0

  • New solution fixing the changing image aspect ratio problem has been introduced. In addition to cropping and deforming, it is now also possible to extend the image with solid borders of a custom color.
  • User interface improvements:
    • Reorder presets in the Presets Management window.
    • Filter presets in the lists to quickly find those you are looking for.
    • Many predefined presets for common paper sizes are included in the bundle. They are automatically imported in the new installations, and can be imported at any time later in the Presets Management window.
    • Context menu in the image browser.
  • Bug fixes:
    • The "Fit to width and/or height" resizing type did not work correctly when only height (and no width) was defined.
    • In the Save Multiple Files panel, tokens sometimes were inserted into wrong locations when the name field contained spaces.
    • Illegal characters in output file names could cause problems when saving.

Resize Sense 1.2.0

  • To satisfy users' requests, it is now always possible to crop an image, unless the user chooses to deform it instead of cropping.
  • A new special resizing type "Crop only" which allows to crop freely or with a defined aspect ratio.
  • It is now possible to copy&paste the crop&straighten configuration between images of the same size, making Resize Sense also a batch image cropper/straightener.
  • Support for images with transparency, such as transparent PNG.
  • Fixed possible problems with special characters in saved file names.
  • When defining output file names, tokens can be inserted at chosen points, not only at the end.

Resize Sense 1.1.0
