What's a good freeware app for an Intel Mac that I can resize an image file (permanently, not like in Preview) with?

Did I mention Graphic Converter?

Every good mac deserves Graphic Converter.

It's shareware, though not usage limited and available here

There's also a heap of other options here

If you just want a simple resize, Automator has you covered.

I've also attached the workflow.

mjankor, I totally agree that Graphic Converter is fantastic, but if all tania2412 wants is to resize an image, it's probably a bit overpowered. Also, it's shareware - not freeware.

EDIT: Hmm, sorry about that. It didn't seem to attatch. :unsure:
Anyway, just go here (http://idisk.mac.com/andrewcod-Public/Resize%20Images?view=web) to download it. (Click the arrow on the right hand side)

Yet another possibility (and free) is SeaShore (http://seashore.sourceforge.net/) - another open source Application
which is very much like Photoshop!

Actually - you might have a prob getting to it from my above link so here's
the full URL: http://seashore.sourceforge.net/

or here: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/seashor...mirror=optusnet (http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/seashore/seashore-bin-0.1.8.dmg?use_mirror=optusnet)

cheers,

And, of course, there&#39;s always iPhoto. Just drag into iPhoto and Export to whatever size you want. Very simple.

andrewcod, how is this compared to Photoshop&#39;s batch (image resize) automation?

This is the method I use. But I can see the benefit of using Automator or another app for batch resizing, especially if you import photos from your camera into your Pictures folder (or any other), rather than directly into iPhoto.
