How To Quickly and Easily Resize A Bunch of Photos or Images At Once

add_plus_1All Together Now! 
Everybody Squeeze!

Resizing a single image is a two minute job in the very easy to use Paint.net application… but the idea of repeating the procedure for dozens of images can be mind numbing! 

Sometimes, you just want to get the same repetitive task done at once! 

Processing images in bulk or in mass is incredibly common because it’s an efficient use of time and energy! 

While there are dozens of ways to accomplish the task, each with increasingly difficult learning curves, tonight I went on the look for something that would be fast and easy to use!

After turning down several candidates, I happily located…

FotoSizer 

Fotosizer is a really easy to use free Windows application that quickly turned all EIGHTY photos I needed to modify tonight into a few minute task!

This is the perfect way to quickly resize the high megapixel images that your camera produces and get them ready for upload to your blog. 

fotosizer-1Select which photos you want to modify. You can either add photos individually or save time and add a whole folder. I chose to add the whole folder of my 80 images to process. 

fotosizer-2Select your settings you want to apply to all selected images.  I wanted to adjust the size. I also used the “optional settings” to reduce the quality to 80% which was barely noticeable but helps make the images load faster when used online.  Select where you want the modified files saved to and what naming scheme you want used to name the saved files. 

fotosizer-3Click the green go button and Fotosizer sets off to work bulk resizing your images. It really took only a couple minutes for the utility to process all 80 high resolution images that I was adjusting. 

Fast, simple, free, and easy to use!  Grab it here!

If it helps you out, be sure to donate to their project. 

An alternative, but slightly more time consuming process (that would likely also be more flexible), would be to “upgrade” Paint.net with a bulk image processing add-on. I’d probably recommend this if you need to do this kinda stuff often.

What are your favorite tools for quickly editing images you want to use on the web?

    Hi there Kim:

    Just to answer your question what photo resizing software do we use I guess that actually depends. For reasons of my own I use more advanced software and almost never resize images and bulk.

    On an image by image basis I use Adobe Photoshop but on the occasion that I do need to resize many photos I will almost always do it in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

    I realize that the average user really doesn’t need to invest in this type of software but I was just searching the Internet came across your blog and thought I would answer the question.

    I’ve never heard this FotoSizer but it does look like it would be a great software for someone that did need to resize photos on an irregular basis.

    Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful day,

    Barry

    This looks like some great software Kim. I will have to do some additional research to see if there is a MAC application that something along the same lines. Right now I use Photoshop and Corel for my image work.

    On my blog I use WP Smush.it as well for compression. I like it, keeps my file size down to a more reasonable size for page speed.

    I wish more people would resize their images, Kim.

    The notion that bigger is better is a big mistake, especially on social media platforms. I consider those oversized images that try to eat alive my Facebook feeds to be little more than spam. No matter what the topic or purpose. It’s obnoxious and self-centered to just try to shout louder than everyone else, in order to have your message heard.

    I hope more and more people (let alone, marketers), start getting into the habit of using tools like Paint and Fotosizer. It will improve their brand, and make their messages more classy.

    Kim, I should have come here last week, that is when I wanted to resize many pictures that I downloaded from my camera and after resize 4 of them with paint I say to my self, how come there is no tool to resize a bunch of pictures at once? Wow, here it is the solution… I will get to work again now… Thanks so much for sharing and for adding the directions how to do it (it helped me a lot)

    Thanks again.

    Hi Kim,
    As part of changes to my website that I am making, I needed to resize several photos to the same size. This tool would have been invaluable as I sat resizing each image.

    Thanks, I will add fotosizer to my list of resources.
    Best wishes

    I had no idea there was a product like this out there. It sure would save a ton of time in photo resizing compared to having to re-size each photo individually.

    HI Kim, What a great tool! I already downloaded and I am going to try this out tonight I have so many folders full of pics this is now going to be a breeze..Tining couldn’t have been better. Thanks for sharing. Chery :)

    That sounds great, Kim – I’ve downloaded it and am looking forward to using it.

    I use IrfanView (another free program) for most of my image work. It’s quick and easy – Paint drives me nuts! If I need to add text, I use Pixlr, which is like a simpler version of Paint to me.

    Thanks for this tip.

    Kim,
    Great find. I love the way you gave a practical examples of why people people would want to resize so many images at once — to resize all them megapixel pics from the digital camera!

    Thanks also for sharing information on the plugin that I can use with Paint.NET because that is fast and easy and that’s the program I love to work with.

    Have a great SuperBowl Weekend!

    Thanks for sharing this app. Resizing bulk photos all at once surely saves a lot of time, energy and effort.

  19. says

    Oh Boy!

    Batch photo sizer! I have been using pixelator and I have to re-size photos one by one. This is awesome especially when I need to re size photos for buttons on Facebook. Or If I need to use a certain size of photos and have been doing them one by one.

    Once again, Thank you Kim!!!!
