Resizing images in Mavericks

After a search for batch resizing tools, which most require a bit of fiddling around with. I found a handy command line tool which comes with maverick, sips.

sips -Z 1024 *.jpg

If you run the above in a directory of pictures, it will resize all pictures in the current directory. For my needs, I passed -Z to keep the ratio, and a maximum height of 1024 pixels.

As always, make sure to keep the original in case you don’t like the results!
