That sounded pretty cool, so I installed it:
$ apt-cache policy nautilus-image-converter
  Installed: 0.3.0-2ubuntu2
  Candidate: 0.3.0-2ubuntu2
  Version table:
 *** 0.3.0-2ubuntu2 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid/universe Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

However, doesn't seem to want to work. Right clicking a jpg brings up no
options to resize etc. Even restarted Nautilus.

Sounds like this old bug:
[Nautilus-image-converter does not work immediatly]
[Doesn't show up in nautilus menus anymore]
