This is getting outrageous and the dev of Sizerox is really getting on my nerves. I write a fair and honest review of a bad experience I had with his app and he now claims I am the coder of resize sense. wtf?

Again, it is obvious this dev is a fraud ! He plays a really dirty unfair game with the competition and even accuses people having multiple account to stop him. Common, every person with some common sense smells this is fishy.

If you apps are as good as you claim you do not need to push it with fake accounts AND remove alternatives on your Macupdate page.

Please stop cheating and let the user himself evaluate your applications. And yes I noticed you are not only doing this with Sizerox but with all your other (crappy) apps.

Again I added several alternatives. Please let do not remove them. Again, that would be unfair !!!

The developer of Resize Sense is right!
It is so obvious this developer has multiple accounts at Macupdate to write fake reviews.

I suggest trying this app before buying. Everybody will notice this app is not as good as the developer tries to tell you.

As a test I added some alternatives. Lets see how many hours it takes to remove those by the developer. Won't be long for sure.

This app messed up a big part of my precious photo library. Well, to be more precise it messed up about 4000 family photos.
What I did: rescaled my photo library to 50% of its size. At first glans it did the job correctly and after a first inspection of the scaled photos I removed the original photo files (stupid me!).
About one week later I discovered colour differences in several photos. What the hell happened to my photos? After a lot of investigations and try outs, I can now tell it is Sizerox messing up both colorspace and colour profiling when you process photos. 5 out of 10 photos you convert, depending on the colorspacing used, converts to a wrong or altered colour profile and colorspacing! That a major let down and makes this app useless.
My conclusion: photos processed with Sizerox can have awkward colour problems. It is not obvious at first glans but the error is clearly shown in colour histograms.
Tried several other comparable apps and they all did the job correctly without any colour differences.
Sizerox is plain crap.

First off: I payed for this peace of crap.
And I noticed the color offset while comparing older photos. The difference was striking and very obvious. That is why I investigated and saw the color spacing was messed up.

I never use this app again in my live and I highly recommend other people testing this and check the profiling with the build OS X preview. Sizecrap DOES alter important color spacing. That is a fact.

Important to know before using. This app is using an illegal FFmpeg version. FFmpeg -L shows:
"This version of ffmpeg has nonfree parts compiled in. Therefore it is not legally redistributable."

I have reported this to the for adding it to 'The hall of shame". Meaning it will be investigated for further legal steps.

@ developers: please read the legal notes at before distributing illegal FFmpeg versions!
