I am traveling and don't have access to Photoshop because I am on a business laptop. I need to resize about 12 large photos and wondering if there is a free online photo editor where I can easily upload, resize, and then export photos to a web compressed format?

I would be open to installing a free lightweight program locally if that's a better option.

Anyone have any suggestions?

GIMP and ImageMagick, among others, are gratis cross-platform image-editing programs that can resize images and convert between formats.

  • Using ImageMagick is rather difficult, as you have to use command-line to manipulate image. That is more suitable for experts. For beginners, stick with GIMP or PhotoScape. Dec 2, 2017 at 22:39

I'd go with Pixlr, personally. https://pixlr.com/editor/. No batch editing and you have to endure Flash - but it'll get the job done in a pinch.
