photo Drop has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 

photo Drop is a small utility that creates customized, drag-and-drop droplets that turn the tedious task of modifying multiple images (and folders of images) into a simple drag-and-drop operation. Using photo Drop, a droplet can be created in just seconds that can resize an image to new dimensions, convert the original image to a new format, rotate the image, modify the compression, and more

What's New

Version 1.0.1:
  • Added a warning about the destructive nature of droplets
  • Added ability to use 'Best' compression when modifying the quality of images
  • Added built in version checking to check for the latest versions
  • No longer scales photos upwards when the value for 'Resample to Max Dimension' is larger than either the images width or height
  • Images retain the original more...


Mac OS X 10.3 or later

This tool is very quick and has good customizations, except for one big issue I'm having with it that still forces me to use photoshop: when converting from a grayscale tiff to gif, the resulting image is overlaid with alternating black and white pixels, (like how old B&W paint programs would simulate grey), making the image unusable.

It would also be nice to have a "save in location..." setting for each droplet.

This was the absolutely best photo resizing software in the world for support people to give to newbs.

Not that it was hard to configure but once configured you could generate a droplet, give the droplet to a newb and say "just drop your images or folders (with or without subfolders) of images to the application icon and you are done".

It required zero effort.

Why do I speak about it in the past tense? The developer stopped developing it. It broke somewhere around OsX 10.5. The developer's website is no longer there, he doesn't answer any email. He's like the Thomas Pynchon of Mac software.

I wish someone else would rewrite this app. I wouldn't mind paying for it as long as the droplets were free to distribute (like YummyFTP)

You'll say there are a billion image resize applications out there. True. But none of them are as good. They all suffer from one or more of the following:
- Can only handle images, not folders and folder trees.
- Require extensive configuration
- Can't save a certain configuration and distribute it
- Don't make droplets
- Cost money.

Again, I wouldn't mind paying up to $100 for the droplet making app, I just want the droplets to be free.

Automator? Apple Script? For some reason they don't "travel" well. What works on my computer doesn't necessarily work on others.
