editor's review





SIR - Simple Image Resizer is a cross-platform and open source software project whose main goal is to provide users with a graphical application for resizing images from the comfort of their GNU/Linux or Microsoft Windows desktops. It is inspired by the well known GTPY - ImageResizer software.

Features at a glance

Key features include support for a wide range of image file formats, including · JPEG, JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, XPM, PGM, PBM and PPM, support for previewing and converting RAW images through the DCRaw application (not included - must be installed separately), as well as the ability to rotate images.

The most easy to use image resizer

The application features an easy-to-use and modern graphical user interface that looks and acts the same on all supported operating systems. To use it, simply load an image folder or just a single picture, select the destination folder, the desired format and the new size, and press the Convert All button.

Under the hood, supported OSes and availability

While the application is written entirely in the C++ programming language, it uses the cross-platform Qt GUI toolkit for the graphical user interface, which means that it’s supported on both GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Furthermore, the application uses the QImage class library to convert the images. It is available for download as a binary file for Slackware and Microsoft Windows OSes, as well as a source archive that allows users to compile and install the software on virtually any Linux distribution, as long as all requirements are met.

Bottom line

Summing up, SIR - Simple Image Resizer is a great little tool for resizing your images in a shortest time as possible and without too much fuss. It is free, supported on two major operating systems, and features an extremely easy to use graphical desktop environment.
