Great but needs one tweak

I love this app and use it all the time. My one complaint is that it would be nice to be able to specify both the width and the height for resized photos. I’ve found that one layout (horizontal pics, maybe?) has a significantly higher file size than the other (vertical?). The app is simple and easy to use, but if there were a “if the photo is wider, max width should be X” setting, it’d be perfect.

The Free Version

I am a new Mac user but I could not get the drag and drop feature to work. After I choose the photos manually, the software said it would over write the old versions. I could not see a change in size. It said that it reduced the size by 1.5 time. That’s not much. I then tried the oprion where you specify the new width and height. That did not work. It did not put new photos in the destination folder. I see no reason to pay for the full version if that’s all I can get out of it.


This app does an awesome job of reducing file sizes on web-safe .jpg files without any visible loss in quality. Superb for meeting low weight banner/ad sizes, as well as increasing load time for website images.

Free version has limited number of images per day, but well worth the full version price!!
