I'm looking for a program to reduce the time I need to prepare images for different social media platforms. Basically I have one large image, which I manually crop (i.e. I select the area to be cropped with the mouse) and resize, so that it looks aesthetically pleasing and has the image ratio and pixel measurements optimal for each social media platform. Basically, I'm looking for a program, which allows me to perform these steps without any extra steps:
- open image
- select preset, which defines image ratio and image size (both in one go), e.g. a preset named "Twitter" with image size 1024 x 512 and a ratio of 2:1 (i.e. 1024:512)
- select area to be cropped manually with the mouse
- crop image to area selected in previous step
- save image
There are of course plenty of programs, which can handle cropping and resizing. However, when handling a lot of images, every extra click takes unnecessary time so I'm looking for a program which can handle cropping and resizing in one go.
I'm looking for recommendations for all platforms (Mac/Linux/Windows).
