Sometimes i need an option to resize images before i upload in any forum. For example, in some forum the maximum image size are 800x600. I think, it os a good idea to add an image resize and image quality option in gallery. There is already an option for resize, but it isn't possible to enter the size manualy.

Good idea, I asked a similar question with regard to applying this idea to any of the screenshot apps available, for the very same reasons you state. I hinted to a few devs but I've not had a response - perhaps I need to offer beer/coffee money!

In my case; when an image is uploaded to TJC, it swamps the page and is probably not very cool for those using their mobile device to view TJC. There is a small app called ImageMagick, which runs in terminal only, this can be used for manipulating images, but of course, you have to know and learn a few commands to make it happen. ImageMagick can be found on Openrepos (Warehouse) https://openrepos.net/content/nieldk/imagemagick

For altering the size of an image, you would use the convert command. So we have a photo of our idea/project and we want to present it on TJC, but would like to reduce the image by say, 50%, so the command would look like this; convert project.jpg -resize 50% project.jpg- that's it, your image is now reduced by 50% and is ready for posting. I know it's not a convenient way to manipulate an image, but it is an option if needed. A full list of ImageMagick commands can be found here; http://www.imagemagick.org/script/command-line-options.php

Thank you for your effort. Is there an option to do quick batch processing of several images? The tool has too many (and time consuming) functions to do a quick resize when I want to share some pictures.
