Description:

Rapid Resize makes resizing images a snap! Especially for iOS developers and designers it's a great time-saver: It lets you define multiple device-specific versions, incorporate scaling factors, process batches of images with a single action, and apply smart file naming.

• Versions: You use versions to apply scaling factors and smart file naming, as well as to choose file types. For each image that you drag and drop on Rapid Resize, a new image is created for each defined version. This makes it easier and quicker to create multiple versions of your images, for example high-resolution versions and normal versions.

• Smart file naming: Rapid Resize lets you specify for each version the shape of its filenames, that is: how those filenames should be generated, based on the image's properties. For example, you can specify that a high-resolution version's filename should consist of the original image's filename, the new image size, and "@2x".

• Scaling factors: Since Rapid Resize is optimized for iOS developers, new image sizes are expressed in points, and for each version a scaling factor can be applied.

• File formats: Rapid Resize can import Adobe Photoshop, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and many other file formats. It exports to PNG, TIFF, JPEG, BMP, and TIFF.

• Keep aspect ratio: You can choose to keep the original image's aspect ratio. In this case you set either the width or the height of the new image. Or you set both the width and the height, in which case the new image becomes a 'stretched' version of the original image.

Rapid Resize has already saved many hours of work. Hopefully it can save you time as well!

Rapid Resize - Not sure why this app is getting bad reviews. I used it on my late 2006 iMac to resize a batch of images for the iPhone retina display to 3G and it worked fine. The app even included the @1x in the file names for me! Best $2 dollars I've spent in a long time. It saved me 30 - 40 minutes of time resizing the images individually in Pixelmator. Thanks!

Review by Sunburns

Missing down-sizing? - The app has a great custom-naming scheme, but lacks the ability to scale down, or I haven't figured out how to do that. The Scaling Factor window only accepts whole numbers. Entering a scale factor of '2' will double the image size, but I can't enter '0.5' or even '.5' so images won't reduce in size, which defeats the purpose of the app in the first place. You can manually set teh image size, but that is very time-consuming for batch image processing. Help is very limited, with no examples. Clicking the developer links on the AppStore leads to nothing.

Review by mlapchick

Missing a lot of advanced features... - Not really the developer's fault – I just couldnt see the screenshots well enough (Apple!). There's no padding option if you need to save image to square format (all of ecommerce now). No color profile support, and a few others.

Problems with servers/drives - I’ve been using this app for years, and I love it. Easily handles large batches (20,000+ images) in a fraction of the time that it takes to batch using Automator or Photosohp. I just discovered a bug where RapidResize fails to resize images if they’re located on a server/external drive. The app will look like it’s working, but nothing ever happens, and the Activity Monitor confirms that the app isn’t doing anything — not frozen, consuming no resources, everything is zeroed out. Once I pulled my 14,500 images local, they batched in less than 3 minutes.
