01 NOVEMBER 2012, DETROIT, USA
Summarysizzlepig™ is a new intuitive web browser tool that processes batched images or photos in the cloud, syncing directly with Dropbox. Made by a team of creatives and developers to eliminate the need for software and scripts. sizzlepig saves time and the integrity of the original images and photos. sizzlepig is useful for any digital image processing, including e-commerce site builds, content management systems, digital asset creation, and more. Opened Oct 27th, with visitors from 58 countries.
sizzlepig™ is a software as a service (SaaS) tool integrating directly with Dropbox. sizzlepig resizes large numbers of images/pictures with precision. It eliminates defects, and creates craftsmanship quality pieces — all controlled visually, all without a file size limitation.
The simple tool has three key sections: Blueprints, Folders and Projects.
- Blueprints can be set-up with an unlimited number of sizes. Images or photos can be scaled, compressed, named, sized, and cropped.
- Folders sync with a shared or private Dropbox account and the folder is continuosuly monitored for edits or new images, which are then pulled into the appropriate project, automatically resized, named and compressed as saved in the Blueprint. Entire Dropbox folders can be processed.
- Projects are created and saved, applying the Blueprint and Folder settings, and offer a unique visual feature — to see every crop, every edit, every fine-tune live and on one page prior to processing.
Processing in the cloud allows the sizzlepig tool to produce results very quickly, saving time.
Visually fine-tuning and cropping each image size in one area eliminates re-work due to error.
Monitoring new files or image edits in Dropbox and creating additional resized and edited images significantly reduces workload.
sizzlepig allows the creative team to spend more time on design and less time in production.
sizzlepig can be tried for free (creating watermarked files), in addition to pay-as-you go pricing, monthly and annual subscriptions.
