Absolute fastest way to resize a group of photos's

I have a process that has to resize all the images to a certain size. I am looking for the absolute fastest scriptable app that I can use.

I have tried Image Events and Imagine Photo. Both are great programs, but I waas curious if anyone had done any research to know the absolute fastest.


You might also want to check out Image Magick. Wickedly fast, bult don’t know in comparison.


The absolute fastest way is to use CoreGraphics. This is part of the OS and involves a fairly steep learning curve to get it working. If you install the Developer tools you’ll find Python examples in Developer/Examples/Quartz/Python. To use it from Applescript might be a bit convoluted - You’d need to write it in Python and then call it via ‘do shell script’. Hope this helps.
