So you’ve got a new listing, and you take a dozen or so photos for the property owner. You have your digital camera set to it’s highest resolution. But this creates very large images — too large to upload to your MLS or to use in some of your marketing materials. And the images don’t need any other editing other than the resizing. There is a great little free utility called Photo Magician. Simply install this program to do fast “batch” resizing of large groups of photos quickly and easily.
Point and Resize
Just put all of your photos in a folder on your hard drive, and launch Photo Magician. Give it a few pieces of information it needs, such as what size you want the photos scaled to, where it should save the new resized images (the original images are left intact unless you explicitly select to overwrite them). It even comes with presets for a variety of common image sizes.
If you don’t need to do any editing of your photos other than resizing, give Photo Magician a try. It’s fast, easy, and the images it produces are pretty good quality.
