Bug Description

So I am becoming a bit anal retentive with my book library. I have found that when I re-size a book cover by pixels to be 366 x 500, an then when loaded onto my Kindle, the cover fills the Kindle screen quite nicely. Minimal negative space showing. So I am in the process of re-sizing all 10,000+ book covers. But I have to do them individually using the paint program on my computer.

I think that it would be awesome if I could do this in BULK with the edit meta-data! We are allowed to delete covers in bulk so why not re-size them too! Would also be nice to be able to do a re-size as you download a cover individually as well.

Just a suggestion, thanks for listening! Either way, I love Calibre!

Go to preferences->plugins->get new plugins and install the resize cover plugin. It should do the trick.
