It stands out from other batch image resizers with the following distinctive features:
*** Saved user presets. *** Performing repetitive tasks? No need to enter the same resizing settings every time! Save a preset for every task once, and reuse it again and again! You can even apply multiple resizing presets to every image!
*** Manual per-image, per-preset crop (and even straighten) adjustment. *** Most other batch image resizers would at best allow you to align the crop rectangle to the left/right/top/bottom, but a better control is often required.
*** Batch image cropper & straightener functionality. *** For images of the same size, Resize Sense can be used as a bulk image cropper and straightener, because it supports copying & pasting the crop & straighten configuration between images.
*** Batch image format converter functionality. *** Resize Sense can be used to convert multiple images from any format supported by the operating system to JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, and BMP.
*** Live final image preview. *** You can see immediately how the the final image will look after cropping or distortion.
*** Simple, intuitive, self-explanatory user interface. *** We have made a great effort to achieve an outstanding usability, and keep working on its improvement!
Want to send a number of images by e-mail? Put them on a website? Show them at any time to your friends on a mobile device? Small file size is essential for these and many other purposes, and there is no need in large image resolutions. It is a bad idea to use huge images produced by modern photo cameras for these purposes... Use Resize Sense to reduce image size as much as you want, the way you please, for many images at once! Save the resizing settings as a preset, and next time you will not need to enter them again! Save several presets, and apply all of them to many images at once!

What's New in Version 1.3.0
* New solution fixing the changing image aspect ratio problem has been introduced. In addition to cropping and deforming, it is now also possible to extend the image with solid borders of a custom color.
* User interface improvements:
--- Reorder presets in the Presets Management window.
--- Filter presets in the lists to quickly find those you are looking for.
--- Many predefined presets for common paper sizes are included in the bundle. They are automatically imported in the new installations, and can be imported at any time later in the Presets Management window.
--- Context menu in the image browser.
* Bug fixes:
--- The "Fit to width and/or height" resizing type did not work correctly when only height (and no width) was defined.
--- In the Save Multiple Files panel, tokens sometimes were inserted into wrong locations when the name field contained spaces.
--- Illegal characters in output file names could cause problems when saving.

What's New in Version 1.4.0
This major update brings the application batch resizing capabilities to a new level. Combined with other new features, Resize Sense becomes even more flexible than before, can perform a lot more work in a single batch operation. In more detail, this update offers the following:
• Saving presets. Save common file naming and format settings as custom user presets. Assign saving presets to your size presets to define how images of particular size should be saved. You can now save images in different sizes and formats in a single batch operation!
• New resizing type Fixed Megapixel Count: define the required image size in megapixels.
• New ways to handle small images: in addition to up-sampling or skipping them, you can now extend them with borders to achieve the desired size, or just copy originals. Copying originals saves you from manual management of small images in a batch.
• Transparent borders (in addition to solid color) can now be added to the image to fix its aspect ratio or when it is too small.
• Batch image flipping and 180 degree rotation.
• Constrain original aspect ratio option in several resizing types. Disabling this option allows you to crop freely and resize in a single run.
• Manual crop&straighten adjustment is now preserved (correctly adjusted) after rotation and flipping operations.
• Copying, pasting, and resetting crop&straighten settings can now be performed both for the current and all size presets.
• Saving in the original (automatically deduced) image format, or in a defined alternative if unsupported.
• User preference controlling the default target directory when saving a single file.
• Remembers the last used saving directory on the latest OS X systems. You do not have to choose the same directory multiple times.
• It is now allowed to interrupt saving.
• Many usability improvements.
• Bug fixes.
