Quick Resizer is the fastest and simplest app for resizing your images on a Mac.

In the past few years, when wanting to simply take a large picture and reduce it to a specific dimension for a website or app, I would find myself opening up Photoshop, saving for web, changing the dimensions, and quitting Photoshop. This operation took at least 10-20 seconds (even on my speedy SSD-based MacBook Pro!), and at least five or six clicks and button presses.

Ever wanting to reduce the amount of time it takes me to do simple, repetitive tasks, and not finding many good (simple) apps on the Mac App Store to perform this operation, I decided to write my own. I'd written a few iOS apps before, and tried my hand with another pretty simple Mac OS X app (Visibility), but this was the first 'feature' app I wrote that I thought was actually pretty useful.

I wrote the app over the course of a week, and submitted it to the App Store. I've already have gotten extremely helpful feedback from the app's users, and the app is being continuously improved and new features added, but never at the cost of the app's incredible simplicity. The app currently has a five star rating, and is one of the top-rated image resizing tools on the Mac App Store.

Highlights: 
  • Native Mac OS X Application written in Objective-C/Cocoa.
  • Allows quick image resizing for JPEG and PNG images.
  • Available in the Mac App Store for $0.99.
