Bulk Resize of Images using Terminal in Mac

I recently tried to bulk resize several hundred large photos in OS X Preview. This repeatedly failed (spinning wheel of death).

In search of a method to resize these images, I found an easy way using Terminal.

  1. Open up your Terminal app (can open Spotlight and search terminal).
    1. cd into the desired image directory (e.g. if they are in your Pictures directory, you may: type “cd Pictures/”).
