You can easily and quickly resize a single photo manually, but what if you need to manually resize a bunch of photos?
In this article, we’ll go through the process of manually resizing multiple photos in one shot using just Windows 10. We’ll also talk about one free tool that can also solve this problem.
Use the Mail Recipient Hack
An easy way to manually resize multiple photos is to turn to Windows 10 explorer. While there is no function that directly allows you to “bulk resize” your photos, it can still get the job done. You just need to think outside of the box.
Here’s what you
need to do.
First, gather all
the photos that you plan on resizing. Make sure to place them in the same
Select all of
these photos. You can press ctrl + A for this. Right-click on them and
choose Send to. Then choose Mail recipient.
An Attach Files window will then pop up.
Here, you can specify the Picture size
you want. Your choices are Smaller,
Small, Medium, and Large.
chosen the size for your photos, you can check the Total estimated size of the photos that are about to be resized.
Finish this process by clicking Attach.
Because you chose
to send these photos to a mail recipient, Microsoft Outlook will then come up.
In the program, you will see the resized attachments.
Click the arrow
on any one of these attachments. Doing this will allow a drop-down menu to come
up. In it, choose Select All.
Once you have
selected all the photos, do the process again. Click on the arrow on any
selection and this time, choose Save As.
Choose where you
want to save these resized photos. Then click OK.
Use a Freeware Tool
The tool to use for this is Image Resizer for Windows. It’s free, small and completely malware-free.
Once it’s downloaded, click Install.
Once the program
is installed on your computer, you’re good to go. Now, go to the folder
containing the photos that you want to resize.
Select your photos. Then right-click on them and choose Resize pictures from the options.
A window will then pop up. Here, you can modify the basic settings for the pictures that will be processed.
You can select
the size for the pictures. If you don’t like Small, Medium, Large, and Phone
sizes, go for a custom size. Choosing custom is how you can adjust the
aspect ratio of a particular batch of pictures.
You can also Make pictures smaller but not larger, Resize
the original pictures, and Ignore the
orientation of pictures. Just select the appropriate choices and hit resize
when you’re done.
And if you want to tweak the default sizes of the pictures, check out the Advanced options.
There, you can
edit the default sizes of the pictures. These default settings will show up the
next time you use this program.
Apart from the pictures’ sizes, the Advanced Options also allows you to do more. You can explore the Encoding, File, and About tabs.
These are two simple and easy ways to resize many photos in Windows 10 without much hassle.
