Resizing batches of images in Nautilus

November 1st, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

If you’re like me, which you either are or are aspiring to be, then you hate having to manually resize dozens of images. Ubuntu, and Linux Mint, by extension, offers a great image resizing and rotation tool for Nautilus. This tool allows you to resize a batch of images very quickly and easily: you select the images, right-click, and select “Resize images”. You can select how you want to scale the images (the options presented are a preset ratio, a percentage of the original dimensions, or a custom size) and how you want them to be saved (you can append each copy with something like “RESIZED” or choose to simply replace the original image).

This tool is particularly handy if you’re looking to post some of your images online – having it around makes it much simpler and easier to resize several hundred images from, say, a vacation. Smaller images mean faster transfer times, and to some degree less concern about other people pilfering your high-resolution images (this is aimed more at a few social networking websites that like to claim ownership over their users’ photos).

    Someone recommended phatch http://photobatch.stani.be/ for batch photo editing on the mintCast a while ago and I have loved it ever since. it is much more robust than just resizing but is amazing what it can do.

    Oh wow, that’s an excellent tool. I’ll have to try it out the next time I have a batch of images. Thanks!

    Right to the point: in just a couple of minutes I read your article, downloaded the program and resized the images. Thank you.
