Repeat Batch Image Resizer


The Batch Image Resizer searches for all BMP, EMF, GIF, JPG, PNG, TIF and WMF picture files within a folder (and subfolders if required) and then outputs resized images to your target folder. You can also specify the finalfilenames, so that the new filename is different to the original.  Look at the other tabs on this page to rotate, add effects and even update the file properties copyright notice.

Each tab on this screen has a different help file. 


Options on this tab


Source picture folder - The folder that contains the pictures you want to resize.  Any non-pictures files (such as .doc, .xls, .pdf, etc) are ignored.   None of your original files are changed.  Resized images go into your output folder.


Output picture folder - This is where your resized pictures will be placed.  This has to be a different folder to the source folder as by default the new pictures files will have the same name by default.  You can change the name on the 'File changes' tab.

Include subfolders - This checks all sub folders in your source folder and resizes them as well.

Duplicate subfolder structure in output folder - If you have chosen to include subfolders, then this option copies all of these folders to your output folder.  If this option is not ticked, then all resized images go into your output folder instead.

Aspect ratio settings - You have the following options:

New width and height This allows you to choose exactly the new size of the image.  However, images may be stretched to fit if the original image is a different shape.
Keep height This allows you to resize images to a new height and the width will be automatically sized to keep the shape.
Keep width This allows you to resize images to a width height and the height will be automatically sized to keep the shape.

Don't enlarge smaller pictures - If you have chosen to resize images to say 800x600 pixels, then a 640x480 image would be scaled up and may look poor.  Ticking this box would keep the image at 640x480 but apply other options such as colour effects, rotation, etc.
