ResizeImage is an AppleScript droplet that will scale most images and save them to the Clipboard. You can then paste them directly into a Text Edit document or Mail document etc.

Just drag an image on to the application icon and choose the amount you want to scale the image by (from 10% to 200%). ResizeImage will beep when the image is ready to paste.

ResizeImage will handle: TIFF, BMP, JPEG, GIF, PSD*, PDF**, TGA, & SGI image formats. *ResizeImage will not work well with layered Photoshop files. ** ResizeImage will only render the first page of a PDF document.
What's New
Version 1.2:
  • The errors reported by some users were caused by ImageResize being unable to determine the "colour space" of an image. Version 1.2 has an additional routine that will identify problematic images and exit with a dialog rather than an error.
  • This should only happen with a very small number of images: Lab color; Photoshop grayscale with layers; Photoshop grayscale with alpha channels; Photoshop multichannel format.
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.3 or later

I'm getting this error message:

??private:tmp:501:TemporaryItems:tmp.pict wasn't found.

Not sure, but this app is a great idea!

I have the same problem as Delmare reports on my G4 Mirrored Mac runing OS 10.3.4. I tried several TIFF and JPEG files and receive the same report, i.e. either no result returned or part of the text was missing.
I assume the "text" means the code since all of these were only graphics (icoms).

Hi anf2res

I've done some more testing and it appears that ResizeImage cannot determine the colour space of certain image types - and this is what causes the error.

From what I could see, this looks as if it's mostly confined to rare formats like Photoshop grayscales with layers or alpha channels, Lab and/or multichannel images.

The software was designed for people who are very unlikely to be dealing with these image types.

What sort of image were you trying to resize? The response "no result returned" is usually caused when you try to drop something like a layered .psd on the application.

Let me have some more information (to the email address in the ReadMe file) and I'll look into it.
