    [SOLVED] Photograph resizing software - recommendations?

    I've a number of large-ish photos which are in jpg format and I'd like to use them on a mobile phone (jpg also). Can anyone recommend a good Ubuntu application for this ?

    Hi,

    There is an add-on on Nautilus to resize image from the contextual menu.

    Install the package "nautilus-image-converter" and you will be able to do mass resizing without having to open any software. Quite useful.


    To install from a terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nautilus-image-converter
    Good luck!

    That works well on single pictures, thanks. Is there something I could do on a number of pictures in one go without having to load them one at a time ?

    It works also on multiple pictures, you simply have to select more than one in Nautilus...

    gThumb. Works a treat. Even though I have Gimp I use GThumb for resizing/cropping/conversion because it's so light, fast and is very easy to use. I'm pretty sure it can also do batch operations for multiple images but don't hold me to that.

    Attached is a Nautilus script (in your home directory select show hidden files fromm view menu and put it in the .gnome2/nautilus-scripts folder and make sure its executable by right clicking choosing properties and under the permissions tab checking the make executable box ) you can than select multiple images right click and choose imageresizer and you will have a number of resizing options.
