"Fast but does not work reliably"
It is fast and the interface is relatively intuitive.
The first time I used it to resize 9 JPEGs (circa 3.5MB) it skipped 2 and all but 1 was incredible small (55kb). It resized 1 photo correctly. I am running Lion on an i7 MBP 15 inch.
I have written to the developer. I have been using iSkySoft PhotoMagic on a MBP 17 inch and it is both quick and reliable. PhotoMagic is more expensive and all I really need is a batch image resizer. I thought Batch Image Resizer might work just as well but I was wrong.
Mostly intuitive and potentially very fast if only it worked. I can resize 1 photo at a time with Batch Image Resizer but that is not the point. If the issues are not resolved then I have wasted my money.I contacted the developer and within 24 hours we had resolved the problem. I was offered an earlier build (264) of version 1.4.6 which was emailed to me. Batch Image Resizer (BIR) now works OK and is quite fast.

WARNING - I originally purchased BIR from the App Store. This build (276) proved to be defective, at least it did not work for me. I suggest that if another purchaser experiences similar problems they contact the developer immediately. He responded very quickly and was keen to rectify the problem.
Updated on Oct 27, 2011This is my second update because I have been asked by the developer if I would like to modify the Star rating I initially gave to this product. I would be very happy to amend my rating and would give it 4-Stars but there appears to be no mechanism to do this. I have not given 5-Stars because I downloaded the product again from the App Store and this build particular build still does not work on my Macintoshes; one running Snow Leopard and the other running Lion.
