Notice

Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

I find that gimp is a little over kill for this. I tend to use Irfanview for this since it superfast to open and resize and has a great batch mode. only windows though.
Who are you and how did you get in here ?

If you think that's overkill, how about me remembering I have a license for Affinity Photo and downloading that to do some simple cropping and resizing? That rolls in at about 450MB.

You call that overkill? This is overkill:

As I have to constantly crop some screenshots to fit them into Google Docs tutorial files for work, I fire up a Windows virtual machine under Linux in order to run Photoshop (emulation on Wine doesn't cut it for newer PS versions)  - just so I can save said screen captures as JPEG files and not heavier-on-memory PNG ones - as it would be the case with Ubuntu's Snapshot utility and because PS's keyboard shortcuts and interface have become much more wired into my mind than any other program's.
Listen to the music, not the media it's on.

For simple image editing I recommend XnViewMP (free for non-commercial use), available for Windows, Linux, and MAC. Its comprehensive batch tool supports multi-threading which makes the conversion of multiple images super fast.

If you require a sophisticated solution check out paint.net (free, optional donation). It is versatile, accurate, very fast, and has a small installation footprint of just ~80 MB. Only available for Windows, though.
