After hitting OK, I can take a last glance to confirm everything is the way I want it to. Now I’ll press the Resize and Save button to begin the process.
A new window will appear, notifying me of the progress and displaying a thumbnail of the photo currently being resized. This process can take anywhere from seconds to hours depending on the amount of photos you’re resizing.
After the resizing is complete, Photo Gallery will brings us back to the folder, with the original photos selected.
The resized images come out with a maintained aspect ratio and a perfect level of compression. For those of you interested, here’s a comparison between the original 24 MP image and the resized one.
Pretty groovy, eh? I saved 8.74 MB for just one image! Enough space for at least two iTunes songs. Multiply that by 1200 (approximate size of my photo library) and you could free up a lot of space if you give resizing a try.
