Sizerox for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Sizerox is an app for Mac OS X that lets you resize, crop, watermark, and perform other manipulation of digital images. It's not available through the App Store, but it is from several Web sites. The demo version (which superimposes gray squares over your images, rendering them essentially useless) can be upgraded to the full version for $14.95.

The Sizerox interface is clean and easy to use. Most of the interface windows show details about the source and destination pictures, while additional dialogs let you select preferences. Fully supporting drag-and-drop, Sizerox lets you select one or more images or folders and drag them over the Sizerox icon. From there, you can resize the images to any size you need, bulk rename the images, rotate them (portrait to landscape and vice versa), crop them, or add a digital watermark to the images. Watermarks can be text or images such as a site logo. Sizerox opens standard image formats including JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and PSD, but it saves images only as JPEGs.

In use Sizerox worked fine, processing images smoothly. Although not blindingly fast, it never had a problem with large numbers of images. The limitation of saving only as JPEGs is unfortunate, as we had to then use another utility to convert the JPEGS to PNGs for our intended use, but JPEGs may be all you need. Also, the demo version's superimposed squares means all you can really do with the demo version is look at the dialogs and get a feel for the software. Still, for what it does, Sizerox works well.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sizerox for Mac 1.4.3.8.

    "Effective, Easy to use and Fast Support!"

    February 26, 2013  |   By AppleMike

    Version: Sizerox 1.4.3.9b1

    Pros

    - All in one batch watermarking and resizing tool
    - Fast Response to resolve my issue
    - Presets for your favourite settings
    - You specify where and how the watermark is placed
    - Ability to save the files to a new folder and append the file names to protect the originals

    Cons

    NONE, because they resolved my issue and they provided excellent support.

    Summary

    There is nothing else that does the job so easily, a must have for any serious amateur or the professional photographer to protect their intellectual property rights. There was an issue with regards to the program not carrying over the original embedded colour profile, but this was resolved almost instantaneously by the author's prompt reply and update he provided me. I would recommend putting out for the $14.95 version, you'll not regret it. The real McCoy.

    "Great too with excellent results"

    September 30, 2012  |   By Jessifranko

    Version: Sizerox 1.4.3.7

    Pros

    easy-to-use
    fast
    without fancy stuff
    many options to resize
    renaming
    text and image watermark
    using your own preset
    excellent support

    Cons

    Nothing to report

    Summary

    Our Design-Agency was looking for a fast resizing program. We are working with Photoshop most of the time.
    After testing a lot of programs, I found Sizerox.

    I read the reviews, downloaded the demo and began to test the program. I could not find any issue with Photoshop-files. So I contacted the developer to figure out if they have a report about Photoshop-files.

    They wrote me that they did not get a report about that. "The best way to figure out if the software does match your needs, is to test it yourself. Try it before buy it."

    Seems, there are people trying to bash software with their reviews at CNet.

    It is very suspicious that the last reviewer create on Sep. 20 a new account at CNet, review this software and did nothing else. No other reviews or actions. It is also suspicious that the developer was not contacted before a review. When you buy a software and have trouble with it, you contact first the developer for solutions, you do not review the software first. Additionally the arguments of the last reviewer is useless. The quality of the output images can be set by the user in the options. Just a tipp, JPEG-format does not support layers.

    IMO,it is not a fair way to bash other developer's work and prevent users to get a appropriate software. I think CNet should clean up the sites and remove such spam.

    Finally, we decided to buy a license-package. The software is easy-to-use without any fancy elements and the support is excellent. That's what I expect from a software.

    "Sizerox eliminates the image adjustments from Photoshop"

    September 20, 2012  |   By gunzor

    Version: Sizerox 1.4.3.7

    Pros

    Easy and fast, output good, UNLESS...!

    Cons

    If you have worked on your images in Photoshop and saved your work as a high quality JPEG, the compressed output from Sizerox appears to eliminate the image adjustments. When I used Sizerox on the original files from the camera (Sony A55, shooting JPEG), the match with the original files was good. But the files saved from photoshop seem to have been stripped of the adjustments by Sizerox. Oddly, the levels of photoshop files reduced by Sizerox matched the original files from the camera, not the adjusted image. I know this is counterintuitive, but believe me, I triple checked it. I wish I had done that before I bought it.

    Summary

    Since I regularly fix up all the images I care enough about to keep or share, This flaw renders Sizerox largely useless. I gave it more than one star because for users who take what they get from their cameras, it does what it says it will.

    "Excellent simple piece of software"

    March 8, 2011  |   By colwill--2008

    Version: Sizerox 1.4.3b3

    Pros

    Does what it says with no fuss and no bells and whistles to distract.

    Cons

    Can't think of any

    Summary

    Have been using it for a while. Suggested a modification and by return email it was done, customised for me. You can't ask more of a developer than that!

    "I like the way it works."

    November 6, 2010  |   By Dobora

    Version: Sizerox 1.4.2b1

    Pros

    easy t use
    fast resizing
    renaming while resizing
    text and image watermark
    rotate and crop beside resizing
    ...

    Cons

    only in english

    Summary

    I played with some other tools but they have unfortunately not too much features.

    Sizerox is an all in one tool that lets you easily resize your pictures.

    It allows you to crop, but it also lets you perform rotating,
    automatically rename the output photos and add watermarks to protect them.

    I also like the new feature. Great job guys.


    Thank you for making such a good tool.

    "Works fast, simple and efficient."

    October 29, 2010  |   By macnz--2008

    Version: Sizerox 1.4.1

    Pros

    easy to work with, fast, good organized interface, many options

    Cons

    nothing to tell

    Summary

    I tried this tool and I must say it works nice and simple.

    I dragged 10 images and dropped them on the App icon and Sizerox began to work. It works very Fast. To test the App I dragged 600 images and dropped it on the App window. Sizerox said 600 images loaded... . I clicked on "Resize" button and it began to work. it took 7min and 11sec to finish all the images.

    A useful option is "Quit App after Job is finished" in preferences. I checked the check box and I tried the test above. It began to work and after the work the App quitted. Very nice.

    Keep it alive, it's a nice tool.

    "Excellent and easy"

    October 25, 2010  |   By cassyboo

    Version: Sizerox 1.4.1b2

    Pros

    # many good features
    # easy to use
    # drag and drop
    # presets

    Cons

    # only in english

    Summary

    Among the strongest points of this program is the very good set of built-in features that help the user obtain the best results with little effort and by mentioning that another plus comes into focus, namely the ease of use.

    Sizerox is made for everyone to understand and operate, everything is kept simple in this respect and the comprehensive readme file will certainly clear any uncertainties.

    Thank you for this program.

    I don't use Sizerox that often - maybe once a month. But each time I do, I appreciate it more and more. It's simple, elegant, and produces picture-perfect results. Highly recommended.
