Editors' Review

Batch Image Resizer for Mac enables you to alter and resize multiple images at once, while making image tweaks along the way. The interface is easy to navigate, and the software carries out its stated function efficiently.

Pros

Good layout: This app's interface is clear, with a space on the right to add the files you want to adjust, and a panel on the left where you can enter your preferences. As you work your way down the left side, you'll make selections for scaling, rotation, and border. You also have the option of adding a watermark to your images and determining their opacity and placement.

Saving options: You also have several options when it comes to saving your new, resized files. For instance, you can opt to overwrite the original images or save the altered images to a new path. You can choose a prefix or suffix to attach to all new files as well, or you can pick an entirely new file name.

Cons

Trial limitations: The trial version only allows you to process three images at a time. Because the purpose of this software is to resize batches of images, it would be nice to be able to test its ability to handle large batches before deciding to purchase.

Bottom Line

Batch Image Resizer is easy to use, and it performs its stated function well. The trial restriction may limit your ability to test it out, though.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Batch Image Resizer for Mac 1.6.1.

"Works like a charm"

June 28, 2013  |  By fitartist

 |  Version: Batch Image Resizer 1.5.6

Pros

Works perfectly. No problems at all. I was able to resize hundreds of images and rename them in less than 2 minutes.

Cons

I haven't found any cons with the program yet.

Summary

This software was able to do what Photoshop CSA seemed incapapble of doing correctly. Well worth the 15 bucks.

November 30, 2012  |  By mastersuperfan

As the title says, no matter which of these picture files I use, it doesn't work!

"Super Fast resizing app"

October 27, 2011  |  By baileydic

 |  Version: Batch Image Resizer 1.4.6

Pros

I was looking for an app that would resize a huge batch of images. This one fit the bill perfectly, and it was faster than the other ones I tried. I especially like how all of the options are in the main window so I don't need to navigate around through many menus to pick out how I am going to resize.

Cons

None that I'm aware of yet.

Summary

I noticed the previous reviewer had problems with an earlier version. I didn't purchase from the app store, so maybe related to that? Don't know, but my copy is working great!

"Fast but does not work reliably"

October 24, 2011  |  By philharve

 |  Version: Batch Image Resizer 1.4.6

Pros

It is fast and the interface is relatively intuitive.

Cons

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.

Summary

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.

Updated on Oct 26, 2011

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, 2011

This 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.

"Does Exactly what it says it does"

February 25, 2011  |  By 12bucklemyshoeadf

 |  Version: Batch Image Resizer 1.4.0

Pros

Simple, lightweight. I don't need to open Photoshop for quick resizing and image editing. Also, making actions in photoshop takes a fair amount of time. This app it takes seconds, and it remembers all of my previous resizing settings.

Cons

I could see a better fit to box option.

Summary

If you need to resize images on the fly (like for web pages), this is the app for you.
