For every small edit in your Apple Macbook, no one would want to have to open any softwares like Adobe Photoshop or Gimp or something else that takes time and load to your mac while opening. And the options in these softwares are always complicated.
So here is a dashboard(mac users hit F12 to open dashboard) widget which helps you in resizing an image in your mac with no big options and no application linked to open. Its called Image Shackle.
When you want to include a picture to facebook or some other similar site and its too large in its dimensions, this widget comes to best use for quick image resizing and decreases the size to your need.
This is how to use Image Shackle –
– Click and hold on an image from the desktop or finder and then press F12 (or F8 on some iBooks) on the keyboard to reveal your dashboard. Drag and drop the image into Image Shackle.
– You can set your own width and height but still, if you don’t want to include your own dimensions, you can drag the image and resize the image.
– Check the preference on the back to convert shackled images to JPG. When converting an image with transparency (PNG, GIF or PSD) into a JPEG the transparent areas will be turned to white
– The image would be saved to the same folder where your original image is, and the name would be recognizable and the size of the image would also be included in the name.
– This widget can play with only one image at a time.
The following file types are supported and must have the proper extension: JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PSD (they will be flattened), PNG, PICT, BMP
– If you try to shackle an image from iPhoto, the file will be saved to the folder that the original was in but will not be imported into iPhoto. Instead, export the image from iPhoto at the desired size, or drag the image from iPhoto to the desktop before shackling it.
