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,
What's New
Version 2.0.0:
  • A new highly requested feature: resizing to achieve the required maximum output file size on disk (in bytes).
  • Any cropping task can now be performed together with resizing, in a single step. Crop aspect ratio can be defined separately with all resizing types except the first two, that naturally restrict it. The cropped part plays the role of the original image when resizing.
  • There is no limitation on how small the cropped part can go, unless you choose not to save images that are too small for the requested size. If the cropped part is smaller than the requested size, it will behave just as a small original image.
  • Preview now shows either the final image or the original with crop rectangle, as you prefer.
  • When saving, it is now possible to replicate the original directory structure, starting from a defined location.
  • Use image IPTC/EXIF metadata in the saved file names.
  • Rename files within the application.
  • Bulk-edit the image resolution specification in the Info panel.
  • Significantly redesigned user interface, with a focus on convenience and clarity.
  • PDF User Guide delivered with the application.
  • Other minor improvements.
  • Bug fixes, mostly for OS X 10.7 Lion.

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.

hangs while processing large photos.
Furthermore it is very expensive.

The best photo-resizer I can recommend is photo-batcher:

photo-batcher works very good and it is FREE.

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.

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.

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.

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.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.

Or when the image is too small for the requested size: enlarge, extend canvas, skip, or just keep the original. Resize Sense also supports batch image transformations such as rotation and flipping.

Want to send a number of images by e-mail? Show them at any time to your friends on a mobile device? Put them on a website with strict size requirements? Use Resize Sense to achieve the size you need, for many images at once! Save your settings as presets, and next time you will not even need to enter them again!
