Digital photography gives us extreme flexibility. We can take the picture once and then use it for many different purposes. Pictures can easily be cropped, re sized and saved in different formats. There are many ways to transform your pictures but XnView makes transforming your pictures very easy.

Transform lots of pictures with XnView batch processing

Let’s do a simple exercise. I want to email some recent pictures and add some text on them and apply little sharpness and noise reduction to them. My Canon cameras produce flat pictures.

It’s true that in order to get best results I should take each picture separately and work on them. But many times I want to do this quickly. This is where XnView rocks!

XnView batch transform window makes it very easy to apply multiple transformation to many pictures at once.

I chose parameters for all the transformations (here you just have to play with the tool and figure out the parameters) and entered the date in the Add Text transformation. Then just chose the destination folder and…that’s it. Once my pictures were transformed, I can easily attach them to email.

Select the pictures and select the transformations you want to apply

Just select the pictures, pick batch processing and add all the transformations you need. Then save the results in the folder you want. I usually place them in a sub folder called email under the event folder.

What’s so great about XnView’s batch processing? The greatest thing is that once you select the pictures you can pick all the transformations you want to apply. This way you apply the same sequence of transformation to a batch of pictures without having to do it one by one.
