I would really like to install the nautilus right click photo re-sizer in my Ubuntu Mate 18.04. I had it in UM 16.04 and have been trying without success to get it to show up in 18.04.
Thanks for all the help...

This instruction follows this tip.
First verify that you have nautilus as file manager:
The output should be something like Gnome nautilus 3.26.3
Second install ImageMagick
sudo apt install imagemagick
Then simple install the nautilus-image-converter
sudo apt install nautilus-image-converter
When installation has completed, restart nautilus by using the command
Open nautilus and right click on an image file. Select Resize Images ... and a window should open like the on below.
To uninstall simple type
sudo apt remove nautilus-image-converter

sudo apt install imagemagick sudo apt install nautilus-image-converter nautilus -q # Reloads nautilus configuration
Watch the screen carefully for error messages that may appear under Ubuntu Mate 18.04. There were no errors in Ubuntu 16.04 and two new options appear on the right click Nautilus menu:
Resizing an image appears to work perfectly.
