ReImage is a great tool for converting and resizing images on the fly using Dolphin/Konqueror, if you are a Kde Plasma user. It unlocks some great features for processing images through some pre-selected options without too many worries.
Obviously, if you want a more consistent and complete tool for processing your images, you just can use a more complete tool like ImageMagick if you prefer to use the command line or Converseen if you prefer a more user friendly GUI application.
Anyway, ReImage is a great tool that I suggest to install on your system since it represents an handy way to resize and convert one or more images with a mouse click when you don’t need to pay too much attention to the more advanced options.
