Usually, when it comes to cropping multiple pictures, you would have to crop them one by one, rather than going through a batch operation, because you need different dimensions for each picture. However, if you wish to crop out recurring elements, like borders, you can do it as fast as possible with BatchCrop. This lightweight application includes more than just simple cropping tools. It comes with various transformation tools as well and it can process multiple pictures in a single run, as the name points out.
BatchCrop is free to try, with some minor restrictions. The application doesn't need to be installed, so you only need to extract its files from a ZIP archive and run its executable. It is compatible with all popular Windows versions and it works straight out of the box, so there is no need to install any prerequisite tools.
The user interface presents everything you need to choose and crop pictures and to perform other actions. Loaded images are listed on the left side of the window, where you can also find the application's main cropping and transformation controls. You can make manual cropping adjustments for each picture, by resizing a rectangle in the preview area or by inserting dimensions. Alternatively, you can use an auto-detect tool, to automatically remove dark or light margins.
Tools that don't require manual adjustments can be used on multiple images at once. For example, the auto-detect tools can affect an entire selection of pictures. Besides cropping, you can also rotate and flip the pictures, add new frames, clean or touch dust spots, convert your images and more. When your work is complete, you can choose one of four output methods. The processed images can be saved with suffixes, in the same folder as the originals, in a sub-folder, in a user-defined folder or you can simply overwrite the originals. Additionally, you can make a few tweaks, to name the files in different ways.
The application allows you to crop multiple pictures in a single run. It provides an auto-detect tool, which can make it quite easy to remove unwanted margins. You can also flip and rotate pictures and make other transformations.
The cropping rectangle has a solid color, which prevents you from seeing what you are about to crop. Fortunately, you only need to select a different image and return to the first one to fix this. Removing unwanted borders or making other fine adjustments to pictures can be done as fast as possible with BatchCrop.
