Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
PixelGrinder is a Batch Image Processor that allows you to resize, watermark and modify thousands of images with just a few clicks of your mouse.
With PixelGrinder you can setup a custom sequence of image processing actions that you can apply to a collection of photos or other images with the click of a button. Features include;
* Process individual files or simply choose a folder and process all images in that directory and all subdirectories.
* Automate the following actions; Resize, Watermark, Blur, Sharpen, Unsharp Mask, Noise Reduction, Grayscale, Sepia, Brightness / Contrast, Crystallize, Edge Detection and more.
* Live preview allows you to test your actions and settings before you process all of your images or holiday snaps.
* PixelGrinder can handle thousands of photos while running in multi-threaded mode, with the ability to pause if you need your CPU power back mid-process.
* Save your action sequences and settings so that you can apply the same actions to different images quickly and easily, or share them with your co-workers.

What's New in Version 1.0.1
This is a minor update to Pixel Grinder which fixes a few small bugs that have been found. The main changes in this version are;
- Added Scale Image action which allows you to scale all images in a folder by a fixed multiplier (for instance all images 2x bigger).
- Added Crop Image action which allows you to crop from a corner, edge or centre with a given offset.
- You can now position watermark images with an offset based on any corner, the middle point of any edge or the middle of the image.
- Fuzzy / white borders when upscaling images has been fixed.
resizing from 3x4 to 8x10 ?!?
I have yet to find any combination of settings that take a photo that is 3000 by 4000 pixels and output one that is 3000 by 4267 pixels (without stretching and distorting the image). Just about every test resulted in a 3000 by 4000 pixel photo or some stretched photo. So either this app fails badly, or there is some totally unintuitive way to do it. I want to take the photos to COSTCO and print on 8x10 photographic paper without cropping and losing the left and right edges. 1.0.1 is a fail...
