Mac batch image resizing FAQ: Is there a built-in Mac OS X command I can use to batch resize images and photos on my Mac OS X computer?
Yes, this article shows a "Mac batch image resize" approach you can use from the Mac Terminal command line, and in the link I share below I show to how to batch resize images using a Mac GUI tool.
Here's an ImageMagick
mogrify command I just used to "batch resize" all "*.png" image files in the current directory to a resolution of 534 pixels by 402 pixels:
mogrify -resize 534x402 "*" *.png
(Warning/Note: Make a backup of your image files before running this command.)
I assumed I'd have to do this using a shell script, i.e., using the script to loop through all the PNG files, but that's not necessary, this one
mogrify command does it all.
FWIW, all the image files started at the same resolution, around 800 pixels wide, that's why I chose this same size for all my new image files with this batch image resize command.
If you have a Mac OS X system, there's another way to resize a group of images. See my "Batch resize images on Mac OS X tutorial" for more information.
