Do you often resize images to multiple image formats before uploading them? If yes, then you could definitely use an app called VarieDrop.
VarieDrop is an excellent piece of freeware that is compatible with computers which are running Windows. The function of this application is to ease the resizing of images. If you work with multiple image sizes, there are preset dimensions that you resize your images to. With VarieDrop, you can resize your image to all of these presets via a simple drag-and-drop action. You can optionally resize the image to one preset or to all presets in a single go.
To get started, you should download and install the app’s setup file which is sized at nearly 0.7 MB. Once the app has been installed, you can open it and check out the interface it offers.
As you can see from the screenshot above, you get four panels that correspond to four different image conversion presets. You need only drag an image into the preset section to have it processed according to the preset’s specifications. The bottom area titled ‘Area 5’ lets you process the image according to multiple presets.
By default, the 4 panels in the app correspond to the following settings:
- Resizing your image to 800×600 pixels in the JPEG file format. Results are saved in the same folder as the source image.
- Converting your image to the PNG file format. Results are saved in a subfolder titled 300.
- Resizing your image to 200×150 pixels and saving the results in the same folder as the source image.
- Converting your image to the GIF file format.
Each of the sections that has these settings also includes a button that is labeled ‘Set’. You can click on this button to open up the preferences window for that particular section.
In the preferences window, you can modify the preset in whichever way that you wish. Image quality levels along with image resizing dimensions can be easily set. Moreover, you can set the output file naming preferences and the results folder in the preset. And from the top left of this window, you can select the output file format of the preset. Current the app supports the following output image formats: BMP, PNG, JPEG, GIF, and TIFF.
The app even adds a shortcut to the “Send to” submenu in the Windows context menu which appears when you right click on an image. This option sends an image to the ‘Area 5’ of the application.
As you can see, resizing images to preset dimensions is made a lot easier with this application.
