Photo Tamer is the easiest, fastest way to convert unruly images to small, tidy JPG and PNG files.

It lives in your menu bar so it's always ready to go when you need it. Just drag and drop images in almost any format and in seconds you'll have a pile of tidy photos ready to save.

• Convert and resize in one pass.
Whether you're dealing with retina PNG screenshots or a massive 40 megapixel TIFF you want to share online. Save yourself time and space by converting and shrinking images at the same time. Photo Tamer can export as PNG or JPG, and it can shrink your images to a target width, height, or intelligently pick whichever side is longer or shorter.

• Lives in your menu bar.
Photo Tamer is the #1 image conversion app because it lives in the background at the top of the screen. It's always ready to go, but it never gets in your way. You don't even have to click it to start converting - just drag and drop image files right into the status icon.

• Handles almost every native filetype.
Whether you're dealing with TIFFs, HEICs, or PNGs - if Mac OS can handle the image, then Photo Tamer can handle it. Photo Tamer uses the Mac's native image processing pipeline to read and convert your images, so even PSD and RAW files are fair game.

• Built for performance first.
Photo Tamer takes up less than 10MB on disk and 0% CPU when running in the background. It's written entirely in native code with no 3rd party tracking or analytics cruft. The app is here only to help you with your photos as fast as it possibly can.

What’s New

Version 1.4

For those who are processing lots of photos in a row, you can now disable revealing converted photos in Finder using a new option in the Preferences window.

Slick, Lightweight, XOXO Sent Me

First off, XOXOer here. 👋🏼
Second, this is really a neat tool. I spent countless hours trying to find a similar thing but were overtly complicated, lacked intutive UI, or simply costed way too much.

Very impressed with it just living in the toolbar, and quick/easy options.

One quick note (and may not be an annoying for some), if you click the UI open, it doesn't automatically hide if you shift focus to another window, or click off onto the desktop, which is (I think a common) capability with menu bar apps.

Anyways, thanks for sharing, and I'd be happy to send a paypal donation for this, or buy a license when it does come out.

Developer Response ,

This is a great note, Jack. Thanks for it! I built your suggestion about an easier click-to-close flow into the latest version. The new default is to close after a single click and it can be customized in preferences to a double-click or no autoclose at all.

It does the thing it says it does

I've had to resize bulk batches of images for a web publishing job for years, and this tool makes it really easy to do so!

Why change the resolution?

The app could be very useful, but it seems to change the resolution of the image arbitrarily to 72dpi. There is no mention of this fact in the app store description nor is there a way to configure the dpi in the app.
