All Together Now! Everybody Squeeze!
Resizing a single image is a two minute job in the very easy to use Paint.net application… but the idea of repeating the procedure for dozens of images can be mind numbing!
Sometimes, you just want to get the same repetitive task done at once!
Processing images in bulk or in mass is incredibly common because it’s an efficient use of time and energy!
While there are dozens of ways to accomplish the task, each with increasingly difficult learning curves, tonight I went on the look for something that would be fast and easy to use!
After turning down several candidates, I happily located…
Fotosizer is a really easy to use free Windows application that quickly turned all EIGHTY photos I needed to modify tonight into a few minute task!
This is the perfect way to quickly resize the high megapixel images that your camera produces and get them ready for upload to your blog.
Select which photos you want to modify. You can either add photos individually or save time and add a whole folder. I chose to add the whole folder of my 80 images to process.
Select your settings you want to apply to all selected images. I wanted to adjust the size. I also used the “optional settings” to reduce the quality to 80% which was barely noticeable but helps make the images load faster when used online. Select where you want the modified files saved to and what naming scheme you want used to name the saved files.
Click the green go button and Fotosizer sets off to work bulk resizing your images. It really took only a couple minutes for the utility to process all 80 high resolution images that I was adjusting.
Fast, simple, free, and easy to use! Grab it here!

An alternative, but slightly more time consuming process (that would likely also be more flexible), would be to “upgrade” Paint.net with a bulk image processing add-on. I’d probably recommend this if you need to do this kinda stuff often.
