In daily life we may need to resize a bulk of images often. For instance, you may need to scale down a high-resolution photo to 600 pixels wide so that you can upload it quicker. You may get used to resize images using Preview or other 3rd-party apps like Pixelmator. But here I would like to introduce a time-saving way to complete the task.
Adjusting the size of images one by one can be quite tedious especially when you are dealing with thousands of pictures. Have you thought about resizing images in batches by creating a handy image resizing service on your Mac? Automator is a pre-installed application in Mac OS that allows users to create workflow for automating repetitive tasks into batches. If you have not used this tool before, you can get to know this handy app and learn how to use it to resize images in this tutorial.
Here are the detailed steps you can take to resize bulks of images in seconds.
You can also create an application workflow to handle the task of resizing images.
Now you have created a workflow for image resizing. Press Command + S keys to save this workflow, give it a descriptive name, and save it to your desired location. To resize the images to your designated pixels, you only need to drag those images onto the Automator’s Dock icon, and later you will get a new folder filled with copies of selected images with each one scaled to a dimension of your desired pixels.
Using the built-in Automator to resize batches of image is quick, easy and free. You can also create workflows to crop, rotate, rename images as you like.
