Resize Sense is a batch image resizer/cropper/converter known for its flexibility and convenience. To illustrate its flexibility: using custom size and saving presets, you can easily resize many images, each one to several different sizes, and save them in various formats with different filename patterns. All this in a single batch operation, in a few minutes!

You can also crop and straighten individual images manually if required, and copy these settings to other images. Resize Sense lets you decide what to do if, for example, the image aspect ratio changes: crop, deform, or add borders. Or when the image is too more...

What's New

Version 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 more...

Requirements

  • OS X 10.7 or later

The saved images are great if not spectacular!!!

This scaling utility is the finest I've used
and I have about 10 of them.

It is the only one that will constrain an
image to a fixed megapixel option.

Dear Users,

We seem to be attacked by competitors running dirty marketing campaigns. Repeated very negative reviews with unfair ratings promoting competitor products, even stating false facts. Unnaturally high scores for some competitor products in the "similar" list, etc. Unfortunately MacUpdate is full of this...

Please download the demo version and use your own judgement instead of relying on fake reviews/ratings. You can also find links to official press reviews and other information at http://veprit.com/resizesense

In this and following comments we discuss some points raised in reviews which we consider unfair/biased.

Macscooter claims that Resize Sense does not let the user choose the saving location. This is simply false: there are two different ways to choose where to save.

VeprIT
+0

Macscooter claims that the "fit to dimensions" resizing type does not work. No details provided. In our tests it works as intended. We strongly suspect that the reviewer was at best careless, as evident from the claim that the saving destination cannot be configured.

Anyway, reasonable users report such bugs to our support, and we quickly fix them. Any complex and actively developed application contains bugs at some point. The question is how quickly they are fixed after being reported. The few bugs reported to us up to now were fixed within days (weeks in the Mac App Store version due to the review delay).

Pedromator promotes our competitor twice, giving Resize Sense half a star without any reasonable justification for the minimal rating. The second time claims that "the calculation of dimension does not work correctly". No details. We strongly suspect that this is just copied from Macscooter (see the previous comment).

VeprIT

Pedromator claims that Resize Sense is slow, again without details. A user might get such impression when importing images because unlike many other batch resizers, Reseze Sense loads imported images immediately. This is done for faster preview and customization (manual crop & straighten adjustment, rotation, etc.), which are not available in many other resizers.

A fair performance comparison would require comparing importing together with saving in Resize Sense against saving in resizers that do not import images. Resize Sense has got quite some praise for very fast saving.

Slower import might indeed be inconvenient when working with many images without customization. We are now working on an update which will support two operation modes for both cases. The Small Batch mode will be suitable for working with fewer images and doing many customisations (as it is now). The Large Batch mode will be suitable for many images with fewer customizations.

There are claims that the user interface is not intuitive. This is subjective, cannot be quantified, and thus is very easy to claim with the only purpose to give a bad rating to a competitor. Resize Sense user interface has got a lot of praise both from official press and end users (see http://veprit.com/resizesense/testimonials). Please use your own judgement.

We did our best to make the user interface flexible and convenient, and at the same time intuitive. If somebody has useful suggestions, we will be happy to consider them, and will possibly even offer prizes for really good ones. We often offer prizes for valuable contributions to our products.

Please be careful relying on reviews and ratings. Unfortunately some developers do not consider it a shame to run dirty marketing campaigns: create fake user accounts, give bad ratings to their competitors, etc. Probably they later treat their users in a similar way.

The "similar software" list is a good indicator of a dirty marketing. If you see applications from small developers having many more votes (smiles) than average, this is most probably dirty marketing. Only developers with big names get many votes naturally. Being a small developer, we have thousands of happy users, but very few votes, reviews, smiles, etc. So far Sizerox was the king of fake "similar software" votes, now Photo Batcher seems to be approaching the top positions.

Also short reviews with extreme ratings (positive for the developer and negative for competition), with vague or no reasoning, indicate dirty marketing. Sometimes this is done in a smart way and is difficult to spot. Other times it is quite obvious, such as duplicate reviews with the minimal rating from Pedromator below.

Just saw this comment "now Photo Batcher seems to be approaching the top positions."

I guarantee we do not use such practice to promote our applications. We believe users should test software before buying it. So no need to push it in the market using ratings at MU

In fact we like Resize Sense. It is a vey decent image resize app. Actually, several good ideas implemented in Photo Batcher are because they are also found in Resize Sense. :-)
And to be honest, both applications have there strength and weakness.

As we also mentioned in our PB mail to you, we are open to help anyone to make apps better, including our 'competitors'. :-)

Osxbytes Dev, thank you for contacting us, we really appreciate it. We also prefer good and open relations. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, in our experience...

We are very sorry for this confusion. Now we are quite sure our suspicions were wrong, because developers employing dirty marketing don’t speak openly as you do. Whatever strange reason motivated Pedromator to give us two unfair reviews, now we are convinced it is not Photo Batcher promotion.

“both applications have strength and weakness” - this is usually the case :-)

Oh, I forgot to mention that SISOY, the developer himself, gives his software 5 star ratings.

This is how the things work here.

I tested it before. It works not reliable and hangs somethimes.

In new version, The calculation of dimension does not work correctly.

Beside that the interface for user is not the best one.

Also the price is very high. in App store you get apps for under 5bucks.

"In new version, The calculation of dimension does not work correctly." - when reasonable users see such bugs, they report them to our support, and we quickly solve them. As in any complex software, it happens sometime with Resize Sense.

When our competitors play a dirty marketing game and promote their products on our page, they give us unfair ratings and reviews. Even if what you say is true, does it justify half a star out of 5?.. Two times?.. What about the flexibility which you will not find in any other similar product?

How many more times are you going to give us half a star and promote photo batcher? Which is not free from what I see, by the way?

An first-rate crop/resize/rename utility. If you have to plough through a folder of scanned photos in order to crop and resize for email or management - this is an outstanding app.
It only took a few minutes for this senior to learn the ropes, and it was time well-spent. On a smallish folder of scanned images I was able to do in less than 2 minutes what it took me almost an hour to do using the Preview app. I expect to use Resize Sense a lot.
Many thanks to the developers!

Well here... let me add my 2 cents

First, your snotty attitude toward reviewers is not acceptable and that inspired me to write this. If you have customers trying to use your product you DO NOT ARGUE with them or cast aspersions. Address the issues.

Second, this interface is very poor and not the least bit intuitive. BTW, I'm a long standing developer.

Third, the reason Mr Stinkeye didn't think the images were save is for the same reason I didn't think they were saved... you save them into the user's Pictures folder without providing any ability to choose their own folder or location. So, they'd know the images were save how? ... exactly?

Finally, one of your options is to fit into dimensions... which did not work at all. An image saved into xy dimensions should be fit both horizontally and vertically. It didn't.

Based on your childish argumentative attitude alone I'd never buy a product from you.

We are doing our best to address the issues, but there are unfortunately unfair and careless reviews stating wrong facts, and we do argue in those cases.

Mr Stinkeye's review is not one of those, it is objective and informative. We have even changed the demo mode limitation in response to it. "Mr Stinkeye didn't think the images were save" because Resize Sense did not save images in demo mode at that time. Your reason is different: you did not take time to look at the product you are reviewing. Resize Sense does provide the ability to choose the destination folder, and even in two different ways: in the saving panel and with drag & drop.

If you indeed had a problem with fitting images into dimensions, please contact our support and we will solve it.

"this interface is very poor and not the least bit intuitive" - if you feel like offending us with "snotty attitude", "childish" etc., you could at least demonstrate a real professionalism and be more specific.

"Finally, one of your options is to fit into dimensions... which did not work at all" - Did you realise what the difference is between "Fit to width and/or height" and "Fit to dimensions"? The latter can flip depending on the original image orientation. Probably that is the reason you thought it was wrong. See the User Guide for details:

Most our users say they are very satisfied with the processing speed. If you have a particular problem, please contact our suppot.

And sorry, but we believe your explanation does not even nearly justify the extremely low rating you gave us...

Resize Sense is designed as a highly flexible professional tool, and has a corresponding price. One of our users says: "This software does one thing: resize batches of images, but it does so in an excellent manner and with a high degree of customization. Highly recommended, the amount requested is absolutely adequate and pays for itself in 30 minutes of tedious manual labor saved."

If Resize Sense does not pay itself easily for you, you probably do not need all the flexibility it offers, and another (cheaper) alternative might perfectly suit your needs.

VeprIT (Developer)

Looking at how unfair your review is, I think the only its purpose is our competitor's promotion. This is also confirmed by the unnaturally high number of votes Photo Batcher got in the similar list. Are you another Sizerox?

If it is so, shame on you! I hope users will recognize a dirty marketing and will avoid such products.

There are many built in presets and
of course you can save your own.

The restriction on not saving images
with the demo will be corrected shortly
by the developer.

Not very intuitive to set up or use. I played with the app for about 1 hour... no joy. Can't SAVE in demo mode! I guess I'm supposed to take a leap of faith that the images will be saved properly. Disappointing... it looked promising.

Thanks for your opinion. Well, if it does not save correctly, you request either a quick fix or a refund. Leaving our customers alone with such problems does not fit our long-term strategy. We will, though, consider changing the demo mode limitation.

As to the intuitiveness, we did our best, and keep working on this. The nature of the application makes it very difficult to make it both flexible enough for professional users and intuitive/easy enough for other users. We are collecting user opinions on how to improve this, preparing guides for various user groups etc.

The latest update enables saving (with a watermark) in the demo mode.
