What if you have dozens or hundreds of images– especially photos– that need to be resized, or need a thumbnail image? One at a time can be mind numbingly tedious. What if you need to create a quite web gallery to display the images? Again, tedious, laborious, error prone. Enter Super Resize.
Hours To Minutes
The teachers and staff in the private school where I work during the day are always looking for new utilities that help save time and speed up any tedious, laborious process. Like resizing photos or graphic images. Super Resize can do in minutes what could take hours in popular apps like Photoshop.
Got a folder full of photos or graphic images that need to be resized or stuffed into a simple web gallery? That’s what Super Resize does.
Resize files by width or height, add a thumbnail and rename the file accordingly or as needed Even add numbers to each individual file in a batch. Image sharpness can be adjusted with a simple slider bar (a numeric options would be handy).
Photo and image metadata can be preserved or deleted, as needed. And, of course, the files can be exported as different file types. The resizing process is straightforward and includes an option to append text to a name, even crop to square, and include Lightbox code.
In my tests of a few hundred images in batch mode Super Resize resizes quickly but that is somewhat dependent upon the GPU in your Mac. Cropping thumbnails to square size makes the web gallery look professional, and Super Resize generates all the HTML code you need so all you need to do is upload the folder of photos or graphics and the HTML file.
One more thing.
Super Resize has a handy built-in Preview option so you can see every change you’ve made to the batch of files– thumbnails, sizes, etc.– before you export the files to be changed and saved.
Super Resize is from the same Mac app developer that publishes one of my all time favorite graphic tools, xScope. Super Resize is free, but there’s an in-app purchase option so you can resize more than one photo at a time.
