How to Resize Images on a Mac
Hey Everyone, Jeremy Hoffpauir here. Today, I will show you how to resize images on a Mac using an Automator service. I also show you how to resize multiple images at once.
Be sure to stop by my tools page for a complete list of the tools I use including electronics, computer, camera gear, and much more.
I write blog posts with many pictures quite often. The pictures I place in my blog posts are often screen captures from one of my videos.
Since I record in 4k, the image size (3840×2160) of the screen captures are too large for my blog.
I like my photos to be 1920 x 1080, which is a nice HD image size. I also use 1280×720 in certain scenarios.
When I first started my blog, I manually resized each picture using preview. After 2 blog posts, I needed to find another way.
I decided to use an Automator service to resize images, which is standard on Apple computers.
Step 1: Open Automator and Create New Service
Open Automator by navigating to your applications folder and clicking ‘Automator”.
Then, click ‘Choose’.
Step 2: Set Options
In the ‘Service Received Selected’ dropdown, choose ‘Image Files’.
Next, Under ‘Library’ in the far left pane choose ‘Files and Folders’.
