BIRT is a simple application that allows a large number of images to be resized in one go. It was created in order to facilitate the maintenance of an online photo album where each hi-res photo needs a low-res copy and a thumbnail.

Release Notes: The format (PNG, JPEG, etc.) of images can now be changed as they are resized. Lossless image formats now produce smaller output files. The build system should now work out of the box on standard Linux distributions. The output file name suffix is now inserted in the correct place.
Release Notes: The code base has been completely rewritten, and now uses Qt4. Functionality has been added and the UI cleaned up. The move to Qt4 has increased the number of supported platforms, and binary packages are available for the first time.
Release Notes: The code has been updated to allow compilation using the newer GCC4 compilers.
Release Notes: A problem with the Help dialog that would prevent it being re-opened if it was closed using the system's close window widget rather than the "Quit" button was fixed.
Release Notes: This release adds a "Smart Ratio Match" processing option. The new matching functionality allows BIRT to resize a mixed set of portrait and landscape images while maintaining the correct orientation of each image.
