Allows the scaling of images from within Quicksilver.

Use the "scale image" action and give it text in the form:

  • SCALE_INFO: "[fit] WIDTH [x HEIGHT]"
  • FORMAT_INFO: "JPG/PNG/GIF/TIFF [low/med*/hi*] [prog(ressive)] [inter(laced)]"


  • "fit 640x480 as jpg high progressive" - creates an image that will fit within a 640x480 rectangle
  • "50% as interlaced png" - creates a png with dimensions half of the original"
  • "x72 as gif" - makes a gif 72 pixels tall, with width to maintain the proportions
