Resize Images

The ability to resize images is an essential tool when working with the web. Here are some tools for Linux and Microsoft OS's.

Image Resizer from Microsoft PowerToys is your best bet when looking to resize images in a Windows environment.

When looking for a utility in Linux there are a slew of options. Ones I have found are from within ImageMagick:

sudo apt-get install imagemagick

Once you have this you can use one of many tools, but I find I use mogrify more often:

mogrify -resize 640 *.png

This will resize and overwrite all png images in the current directory to a scaled with of 640px. If you don't want the images to be overwritten you can use the equivalent command convert.
