Image File Resizing Using the PowerShell Community Extensions

A reader asked me about using PowerShell to process image files.  While PowerShell doesn’t natively support doing this you could perform this task by using PowerShell’s support for .NET which supports image resizing.  However if you have the PowerShell Community Extensions (PSCX) installed you can do this pretty easily using cmdlets like so:

PS> Import-Bitmap .\Foo.jpg | Resize-Bitmap -Percent 50 | 
>> Export-Bitmap -path fooSmall.jpg -Format jpeg

Can you feel the power?!
