iOS Shortcut: Bulk resizing photos

I often take screenshots when watching course video. Those screenshots are usually very sharp and large. That’s oversized as reference purpose. So I need to bulk resizing them into smaller size for storage.

The following shortcut takes multiple photos from share sheet and resize the images into 25%, 50%, 75% size. It will then prompt to delete the original photos.


  1. In Photos app

  5. Resized photos are saved to Photos.
  6. After running the shortcut, it prompts to delete original photos.

Here is the demo resizing 17 photos:
