Is there a native app/software that will get my photos all the same size?

I know how to do this with photoshop but I'm not sure if there is any Apple native app/software that will do this for me. 
Lets say I have 5 photos of different sizes and I want them all the same size.  I know I could reduce them all in preview but that doesn't allow me to move the photo around and cut out stuff I don't want in it.  Or I could crop them in Preview but then they are not automatically all the same size. 
The way it works in photoshop is:  I open up a new project that is the same size I want the photos to be.  Let say 900x644.  Then I copy one of the photos I want in that size (lets say it somewhat bigger) and when I paste it into that blank new project that is 900x644 I can move the pasted photo around to get it so what I want to fit into that newer smaller size is there.
Is there any way to do this without special software on a regular Mac.  I'm trying to help a family member who doesn't really want to buy or learn a complicated graphics program.  They have iLife 11 BTW but I don't see a way to do it with iPhoto.
Thanks for any ideas you may have!

Use the Automator app (it's in the app folder) to resize a batch of photos:

I just tried this and it works and is fast.
