You’ve just been handed a large number of photos, tasked with the unenviable process of renaming, resizing, and converting them all for whatever purpose. Your trusty image editor awaits, capable of doing everything you need – except you’ll have to process each file one at a time, manually.

You could spend hours performing the same repetitive actions, or you could task AnyPic Image Resizer with the job. Drag and drop the images you want to convert into the main window. If you’re converting your photos for a specific device or purpose – such as an iPhone or for sharing on Facebook – click the Profile drop-down menu to select a preset format and size.

Alternatively, choose manually: click the appropriate button to select the output image format (all major image formats are supported, plus PDF for good measure), then select a compression or quality setting if applicable. You can also resize the photos if you wish, plus rename them – the controls are a little basic here, but adequate for most people’s needs.

All that’s left to do is pick your destination folder, then click Convert and wait for the photos to be processed automatically in a fraction of the time it would have taken you manually. You can even save your custom settings as a profile for future use.

There are more fully functional tools out there – a Pro version (costing around $20) throws in watermarking and advanced editing functions, but you can get all of this for free by choosing Faststone Photo Resizer instead, although it's not as quick and easy to use as AnyPic Image Resizer.

A good – if somewhat limited – batch processing tool whose simplicity and user-friendly interface will appeal to those who don’t need more advanced options.
