Images play an essential role in every aspect of digital life, whether they’re used on a website or blog or they’re used to spice up a presentation. However, the images must be a specific size to get the most out of the visual appeal.

Changing Image Dimensions

The Image Resizer settings screen allows you to customize the sizes of the output files. Small, Medium, Large, and Phone are the four default sizes, each with different heights and widths in pixels. You can also create your custom size for resizing images to meet your specific requirements.

You can also choose to resize the original Image rather than keeping the original file and saving a copy of it as a resized image. It is helpful if you don’t have much storage space left or if the original Image is no longer required after resizing.

Encoding of Images

The resized files are saved in the same format as the original in the default configuration. The image resizer cannot convert the file type, but it will keep the Image in the user-specific folder as a fallback if it cannot recognize the original format. You can specify whether it should save as JPEG, PNG, or TIFF, as well as the compression level.

Naming of Files

You can also specify the filename format in which the resized images will be saved. The six variables available are original filename, size name, selected width, selected height, actual width, and actual height. If the file name is ‘DICC’ and you are resizing the Image to ‘Phone’ size, the Image will be saved as ‘DICC – Phone.’
