OpenResizer, a bulk image resizing application

Before showing how to install and some screenshots of the program, it is worth a mention of why the developer chose to distribute OpenResizer in snap only per hour. Excerpt from his blog:

My goal was simply to package the application and distribute it. I didn't want to spend a lot of time packing because I wanted to get to my end users quickly. The choice for me was based on how easy it was to package my application, and Snap seemed to meet that requirement.

So the choice seemed clear – I decided I would use Snap. It was easy to get started with the basic tutorials, but it was not easy to finalize and adjust the final package. The tutorials were enough to get started, but they didn't have detailed tutorials, so I constantly asked the Snapcraft forum about various things related to Snaps. Fortunately, the forum was very useful and I was able to package OpenResizer as a snap.

That done, let's go to the application installation procedure.

If you don't have snap installed in your distro, just follow this tutorial we made and enable. Then browse the app store for OpenResizer and have it installed.

If you prefer, you can install it via command line:

sudo snap install openresizer

Application Functions:

Resize one or more images;

Before / After Preview;

Support for image formats: PNG, JPG, BMP;

Compression fit for JPG;

PNG support with transparent background;

Support for multi-core CPUs;

Free and open source.

It's great to see devs clarifying why using Snap, Flatpak or AppImage, and what facilities and difficulties are encountered at the time of postage. I believe that the use of these formats only tends to increase. It's also worth mentioning that if you have any bias or anything about apps being packaged in container formats without problems and stress man, there will still be other ways and programs for you to use, such as repositories via DEB, RPM and so on.

This article does not end here, keep exchanging an idea there in our forum.

Hope to see you next, a big hug.
