Free Trick to Resize Multiple Images at Once on Windows 11

We live in a generation where there’s endless access to cameras and photos. As a professional photographer, you tend to take many photos to run a commercial campaign or to upload it on multiple social media platforms. These photos get accumulated over time, and you would likely need to resize the photos in bulk to use them on different social media platforms.

When it comes to internet images, size matters a lot, especially for individuals who can’t wait for a picture-heavy page to load due to sluggish or poor internet connections. In such situations, many people get impatient and would rather find a different platform than wait. So it’s essential to post photos that are of the correct size to reduce such bounce rate.

Professional photographers take large-format photos with digital cameras. These accumulated photos need resizing to standardize them for a project or to run a commercial campaign. Resizing single photos might consume your time. But you don’t have to be concerned about it anymore.

In this article, we will assist you in resizing your bulk images on Windows 11 easily. Additionally, if you have run into a photo loss scenario due to any reason, then go through the article on how to recover photos using Remo Recover in a few simple steps.

Why Would you Want to Resize your Images?

Common reasons include:

  • You would likely resize your images if you are uploading in bulk on various social media platforms.
  • Blogs frequently become unresponsive when photos are too large. Your website themes, especially those with homepage sliders, can go haywire.
  • To have standardized images on the blog or website.
  • If you have multiple photos of different sizes, then you can resize them to use for the same cause.

Because most photos are usually not in the exact size we require, knowing how to resize an image appropriately is critical.

When an image is resized, the pixels in the image are updated. When reducing the size of a photograph, the picture editing program removes any unwanted pixels.

The photo editor must create and add new pixel details while enlarging a picture. This is why it is required to understand how pixels work.

Below we will discuss how you can resize a big number of images at once rather than one at a time.

As you know, resizing images can result in a change in image quality, so making a backup of the original images is essential. Moreover, your images will be less clear if you resize them down to a very lower size. You won’t be able to get the original image back once you’ve resized it.
