How to resize multiple images in one step using Windows

This tutorial will guide you in using free software for Windows to resize a group of files all at once (batch resizing). The input pictures can be JPG, BMP, GIF, PNG or HD Photo (.wdp, .hdp) format. The resized output files will be JPG.

  1. To get started, download and install the free Fast Image Resizer for Windows. Once it’s installed, launch it from your Start menu. Click the Options button to set your preferences.
  2. resizing pictures in windows

  3. From here you can increase or decrease the quality of the files that will be created. You can also specify how you want the files saved – in the same folder as the originals, in a subfolder of the images, or in a specific folder of your choice. Review the other options and make changes as you see fit.

    I had high hopes for this software & was happy with the amount of good feedback the product has. Unfortunately, it didn’t work as intended for me. I selected 970 x 230 for my images but they save as 307 x 230. Uninstalled.

  • Reinaldo October 21, 2011, 6:23 pm

    Very nice program, simple and fast, it resized all my photos (portrait and landscape) in several sizes with no problems.
    Good work!

  • Me June 9, 2016, 8:32 pm

    I need a way to specify the size in percentages (e.g. 50%), because I have a lot of photos to resize and they don’t have the same dimensions or resolution. I want to keep them identical to originals, but 50% smaller. Any ideas?
