Thanks to Jérôme Launay SIR now has it own domain.

A simple application for resizing images,inspired by GTPY - ImageResizer (www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=32338)
But I used C++/QT and QImage class to convert the images.

SIR - Simple Image Resizer can convert into and from the following formats:

· JPEG
· PNG
· BMP
· GIF
· XPM
· PGM
· PBM
· PPM

SIR also can rotate your images.

The downloads are totally free, but if you like Sir, please send me a postcard of your city :)

I love SIR, its very useful. Thank you very much.

I'm concerned by the "last release", does that mean you are dropping the project?

Sad to think this is the last release if you are.

Hello Rafael

1.Your sir.desktop in sir sources is service menu file but not an application shortcut. So please change in sources to look like mine /usr/share/aplications/sir.desktop:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Sir
GenericName=Simple Image Resizer
Exec=sir
Comment=Qt4 Image Resizer
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/sir.png
Terminal=0
Type=Application
Categories=Graphics;

Correct the icon name if needed in both service and shortcut files.

2.Your sir.desktop is a service menu but it is broken. When I put it in my KDE4 /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus it is not visible. I fixed it changing your sir.desktop to look like this:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Service
ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin,image/*
Actions=openWithSir
Name=openWithSir
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/sir.png
X-KDE-Priority=TopLevel

[Desktop Action openWithSir]
Name=Open with SIR
Name[pl]=Zmień rozmiar obrazka z SIR
Exec=sir %U
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/sir.png

3.So it looks like it has to be 2 files sir.desktop in sir sources first for service menu and second for application shortcut or change the name for service menu f.e. sir-service.desktop.

4.Your debian package in Your launchpad repository has no service menu entry as /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/sir.desktop(sir-service.desktop) and /usr/share/applications/sir.desktop is a service menu entry not an application shortcut. Please fix it, because sir is not present in KDE4 menu and it's service menu is broken.

Thanks for developing sir. It is very usefull and I like it much since qt3 version ;-)

Could use a function that handeled both landscape and portrait pictures at the same time, i.e. persentage reduction would be nice. And/or it could detect that the height is bigger/less than the width of the picture. I have a large collection of pictures, and many of them are in a rather huge size, and they are in many subdirectories. I would like to size them all down to maby half, and most preferably in one operation =)

Maybe your downloaded file was corrupted. Try to download and compile it again.

plz add one option so that one can resize an image keeping Aspect Ratio constant. Otherwise, it spoils the image after resizing.

Can I suggest a cleanup of your interface?
Specifically:
* Convert All / Convert Selected should just become Convert. A select all button (or availability in right click menu) should be present as well as the normal shift and control keys to select multiple objects.
* Remove All and Remove Selected should be changed to just Remove or Remove File for the same reason as above.
* Maintain Aspect Ratio should be underneath width and height.
* Add Dir should be removed and you should have the ability to add a directory by using the Add File box. All other programs seem to have this, is there something in QT4 that makes this impossible?


Just these simple steps will provide a much cleaner interface and make it much easier to use without losing any features.

Thanks!

Hi there,

I'm trying to install SIR, but this is how far I get:

kunde@kunde-desktop:~/sir-1.9.1-qt4/sir-1.9.1-qt4$ ./qmake sir.pro
bash: ./qmake: No such file or directory

And I have build-essential and qt3-dev-tools installed!

Hello,

To install sir-1.9 you will need libqt4-dev and qt4-dev-tools.

And the command to generate the makefile is only qmake-qt4 (or qmake) and not ./qmake.

Rafael Sachetto

How about some screenshots in english, which is the language to use at KDE-x.org sites, so more people (like me) can understand how the program can be useful for them?
