    Hi Tim. These are handy tips. I agree with you 100% on working out the height to width ratio. I have found that I needed to do this on my clients site. I seem to be doing this in photoshop all the time, especially with the kiteboarding images on my site. Many of these are very large and need to be reduced to less than a few hundred pixels.

      Hi Steve,
      You are so right that many seem to think image resizing ‘just happens’, when often there are many steps to get it right! I’m glad you found these tips useful.

    Very helpful post, Tim!

    I really like the frames you’ve got the images in and look forward to that post demonstrating how you did that! 🙂

      Julie, thanks for the reply and yes, I’ll add that to the list or another blog post. There are a lot of great ways to do these effects besides mastering Photoshop.

    Nice work, which tools to you recommend for resizing? Do you have a favorite tool for batch resizing?

      Hi Eileen,

      I find the best tools are ones that make sense to the user. I use Acorn for single images, it is a great small app. I then also like Batch Photos from the Apple app store. Quick and easy for lots of image resizing. Some also like Adobe photo effects, but I haven’t worked with that for a long time. Thanks for the comment and glad you liked the article.
