OSX Tip: 4 Resize Images in Batch with Preview

My friend Jeff (@teachercast) needed a way to batch resize and shrink some images so I put this post together explaining how to do this with preview.

  1. In a Finder window, select all the image files you wish to process.
  2. Right click on the images and select “Open With” and then select “Preview”Screen Shot 2013-01-22 at 8.39.51 AM
  3. All of the images should show up in preview
  4. Click “Edit” and then “Select all” or click “Command + A” (You should see all of the images highlight in blue)Screen Shot 2013-01-22 at 8.45.24 AM
  5. From the Tools menu, select “Adjust Size”.
  6. Choose the settings you wish to apply to your images from the dialogue window.

  7. After adjusting your settings, Click “OK” and then save your images.

    Great walk through. If you want a simple to use drag-drop app to do the same process that even your Grandma could use then I recommend ImageXY (www.imagexyapp.com) from the Mac App Store.
