Reduce - Batch Resize Images and Photos for iPhone & iPad
By Tobias Wiedenmann
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
★★★★ CultofMac.com: This app screams “quality.” ★★★★
Attention: iOS 6 or greater needed.
Resize your photos with ease starting today! Reduce lets you export your pictures optimized for the web.
Set the image dimensions and a file size limit and Reduce will determinate the best possible image quality for you.
Never struggle with images too large to upload.
But Reduce will do a lot more for you:
√ Batch-process multiple images
√ Resize the image to a specific dimension
√ Autodetection of the needed jpeg quality for a given file size
√ Alternatively use a fixed jpeg quality
√ Optionally sharpen the image to avoid softness caused by the resizing
√ Choose if you want to remove EXIF data like gps position or the used camera settings
√ Add a watermark or description to your photos
√ Use a border to seperate your photos from the background
Reduce is made with love by a photographer for photographers.
Feel free to contact me if you have questions or other feedback.
What's New in Version 1.1.1
- Fixed: Wrong image dimensions in Exif Data
- Fixed: Bug where manual jpeg compression failed
- New: Double tap to select all / no photos inside an album
Essential...though improvement needed
I am unable to do without this app. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. I think it works with decent speed and execution:
once I can get it up and running....
Two Major Areas where Improvements Needed:
1. Titles under the albums is a no brainer...why the heck is this not even at the very least an option.
2. To get running requires me to keep opening the app repetitively on a varying number of attempts until it stays open...This seems to fluctuate depending on the number of recently taken pictures added in the camera roll from the last time this app had been open, and the number of background apps you have running. Probably a fault low RAM availability with 512mB in every tablet but the Retina with 1gB. Needs a work around in the programing none the less, it is just an unacceptable fustration.
Looking for a way to resize a number of images at once on the iPad, I tried this app. Though it does the resize routine, the program does not give the option to place the newly reduced images in a separate file which is a must when dealing with more than a few images. Neither does the program make any differentiation between old and new images except by watermarking the new image. Watermarking isn't always acceptable. Finally, after trying to contact the developer about work arounds for these problems, I just gave up.
Easy to use. I like that I can batch process images and save my preferred settings.
Two suggested improvements: show the names of photo albums when selecting images to resize and allow us to specify a new folder put them in, instead of the default Camera Roll.
