View Full Version : Automator and batch image resizing

Jul 13, 2008, 08:15 AM
Hi all

In my old PC days, I used the excellent freeware Irfan View for basic image editing, resizing, conversion and similar tasks.

Preview is good on the Mac and allows me to carry out the same tasks, but it doesn't do batch conversion, which Irfan does with a breeze.

Could perhaps Automator be set up to do this (or is there a way in Preview which I haven't yet seen)?

I'm looking for image resizing, image renaming, image resizing+renaming, and also changing the jpg quality. I've played around with Automator and see that one can have it ask for which images to convert but how do I set all the other actions?

Thanks for your help

Fyi, i just found this Automator script (http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/automator/resize.html) on Apple.com but, alas, it appears that the page it links to does not any longer exist...
