    Best Lightweight Image resizer / crop

    Gimp can do what I want but it's too complex and slow for quickly handling images / photos

    I want to open an image, resize it (MB --> K) and crop

    is there anything lightweight to do this in Gnome?
    Fedora 17

    thanks in advance

    You might try gthumb. It's been a while since I looked at it, but I think it used to do that.


    EDIT: Nope. I take that back. It doesn't do much at all. Must have been something else I remembered.

    EDIT 2: Hello! Ayup. It will do all that. It's just disabled on new installs now. You have to hit the plugins dialogue and turn the durn stuff back on. <....>

    ImageMagick isn't quite lightweight, but has various command lines to do that sort of thing.

    is just one example

    Hi,

    I second smr54 - the 'convert' command-line tool from ImageMagic is excellent in quick resizing, reformatting et al - especially if you want batch processing.

    WWell,

    Actually, there is something called Pinta. I like it very much - very convenient to use.

    Note that as this is a Linux forum, sending the poster to Windows software might not be what they're seeking.

    Hmmm.

    Good point.

    There is a nautilus plugin that I have installed many years ago which does MB--> kb very easily.
    Unfortunately I cannot remember its name and how a got it. Maybe someone else can direct you to it.
    I use F26 and Gnome Xfce, with all updates applied, on a X86_64 kernel with 4gb of DRAM and Evga Geforce 7600 GS PCI-E 256mb DDR2 video card.

    "nautilus-image-converter" gives "Resize Images" when right click of mouse button on image thumbnail.

    I would give ImageMagick +1, or if a GUI is required i'd vote for 'mtpaint'.
