While most photo editors come with a built-in resize tool, the majority do not allow the user to batch resize multiple images in bulk at the same time with a pre-determined size. Luckily, there’s an app called Icecream Image Resizer for Windows PC and it is awesome.
Icecream Image Resizer
The Windows freeware was designed with resizing images in mind, hence the name. This is the primary focus of the app, which is one of the reasons why it is so good at the job. It supports image size presents and batch image resizing. It comes with a simple to use interface, along with advanced options.
Users can even resize an entire folder filled with images. Just imagine wanting to upload a bunch of pictures to Facebook at a certain size. Icecream Image Resizer will make this task so much easier; not to mention how fast it gets the job done. However, we suspect the speed will vary due to come computers being faster than others.
The app also supports drag-and-drop and doesn’t require an Internet connection to get things going.
We also like the presets it brings to the table. For example, there’s a preset for Facebook Timeline cover, one for Email, and many more. We should also point out that Icecream Image Resizer supports JPG, JPEG, PNG and TIFF images. Other image formats are not supported, but that shouldn’t be a problem since it is not an image manipulation tool.
Batch resize multiple images
Click on the add image button and choose the images you want to resize. Once they are up and ready, they will appear at the right-side of the program with options t change the aspect ratio. Click the green button that says Resize and that’s it.
See how easy that was? No complexity, just a few clicks of the mouse and the job is done.
So what about the problems?
The problems here are not a deal breaker, but if there’s another app like Icecream Image Resizer that solves the following issues, we’d definitely make the switch in a heartbeat.
For some strange reason, the developers chose to not allow users to create custom presets. In our minds, this is unacceptable, but still something we could live with if the competition fails to solve it. Furthermore, users are not able to minimize the tool to the system tray, something else we can live with but would rather not.
Overall, the app is solid, and it is what I use now to resize images for The Windows Club. So far, there are no underlying problems that might cause for concern. We’ve scanned the app with VirusTotal and came across no viruses or malware, so it is good to go.
Icecream Image Resizer can be downloaded from the official website for free.
