    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    iPhoto can do this (both a few pre-set sizes as well as custom resizing via export), but there are many other choices as well. For large batch resizing, I like ACDSee Pro for Mac beta (but I'm biased!).

    Here's another option, and it's free: daniele.ch - welcome

    Specs:
    21" iMac * 2.8 Ghz Intel Core i7 * 16GB 1333 Mhz DDR3 * 1TB HD *AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
    I would just use iPhoto for that. Otherwise, K Studio Resize is pretty good, and it's free.

    That program is PPC only (which may or may not be important, but it means it doesn't run as well on Intel Macs) and hasn't been updated since January 2005. It may still work fine, but it seems to be abandonware and probably has no future going forward.

    Preview is OK for resizing individual photo's. It's on your Mac as part of the OS.

    Just select the photos you want to resize, then click on the file menu and choose "Export". A dialog will pop up and ask you which sizes and formats you want to export the pictures in, including custom settings. Then navigate to your destination folder and you're done.

    K Studio's Resize seems to work okay for me, but I haven't used it in awhile. It's pretty simple though and I can't see it needing too much updating as is. But you can also create a resizer program with Automator, which I used before I started using iPhoto. There are different methods of creating such a program online.

    I have found this one to be the best by far (if you'd used search first you'd have found a previous thread about it).

    I love iphoto, but cannot figure out how to resize the actual picture .
    I know how to crop etc. also how to resize using mail, but there are actually times I need to resize.
    Can someone explain how please.
