Mass Resize / Rotate Images Easily via Context Menu in Ubuntu 18.04

For those who want to quickly resize or rotate single or a batch of image files, without launching a third-party application, you can do it easily from files’ right-click menu.

Gnome’s default file browser Nautilus has an extension called nautilus-image-converter. To install it, open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run command:

sudo apt-get install nautilus-image-converter

Input your password (no visual feedback while typing) when it prompts and hit Enter.


After installed the extension, restart Nautilus file browser service via command:

nautilus -q

Finally right-click image files and you’ll see two new options “Resize images” and “Rotate images”


The two options allow you to resize / rotate images into a selection of pixels, custom size, or scale images.
