Does/can this tool resize images? Apparently not. This would explain the dreadfull and persisting error message "Error packing images: Failed To Pack Image". I guess it's okay for creating sprites, where images are small and have the same size, but it's less usefull otherwise.

Well it is called Sprite Sheet Packer. ;)

But in seriousness, this tool was created for sprite based games to combine large numbers of (generally) small images into one big image to increase batching and performance. For some games all of sprites fit into one image. Others may need multiple images. If the images are too big, then yes, it will fail. The tool doesn't alter the images in any way because generally that isn't helpful to game developers, especially resizing down where you are guaranteed to lose quality.

If you want a more advanced tool (albeit with a price tag), I'd recommend TexturePacker. Not sure if it will have all the features you need, but it definitely is more advanced than Sprite Sheet Packer.
