    Default Baires - Batch Image Resizer

    Ladies and gentlemen,
    I announce my 1st Qt4 application - Baires.

    Baires is a program that helps you easily resize bunch of pictures from one directory and place it to the same or another, with just one click (after initial setup, of course).

    With help of @microchip8, who built spec, RPMs and placed them to his repositories, I have now made an "official" download page at my site.

    Baires download

    Suggestions & critics are very welcome.

    Anyone has any suggestions and/or ideas how to improve program?
    I plan to do:
    - add localization (I speak serbian and portuguese also)
    - add extensions customization (so it can do other formats, beside jpg and png)
    - add customization of resolutions (to add in combobox)

    also, I'd like to hear your opinions.

    GTK is an ugly desease and can be a major pain in the ass to package. Seeing this is a very small program, it wouldn't hurt but still I don't like it

    No GTK!
    I barely managed to learn Qt in free time that I dont have.

    As things are now, just one library is needed as dependency, and I tend to keep it simplest possible.

    Simplicity rulez!
    LOL

    Baires is now translated to Portuguese(BR) and Serbian.
    It has new features, like saving custom resolutions, file type selection and abortion of process.

    Worth checking out, if you didnt already.

    Nice program there
    How do you do the resizing? I'd recommend to use a high-quality Lanczos algorithm (if you don't do that already).
    Looks like it only supports .jpg - it would be better if you at least added support for .png and .gif as well.
    Also, adding a 64-bit version would be a good idea.

    It supports jpg, tif, png and bmp
    (newest version, at least).

    I don't do any special algorythm, I use default for the QImage component. I will look into it.

    I also, need translators for other languages if someone wish to...
