A simple way to resize photos

Many times photos taken by digital cameras are too large for storage on digital photo frame, attaching to emails, or used on a website. It's very common that you will want to resize the photo or all the photos inside a folder in a batch processing. There are quite a few image resizing software on the internet to download. Microsoft Image Resizer is one of the easy ones to use. There are three main reasons:
  1. Very simple to use. Just a right click on the photo(s) and select Resize Pictures, you are good to go.

  2. Batch processing. No matter how many photos you have, you can select them all and process in a batch.

    Batch resizing:

  3. Intuitive resize options. The photo resize options can be matched to four standard computer screen sizes. This has definitely eliminated your wonders about what size you should reduce or enlarge a photo to. In addition, you can also set to resize the photo to an exact size.

    Simple interface:

The only drawback about Image Resizer is that you can't change the image output format. It does not have a built-in image conversion function that enables you to convert the image to a different type while resizing.

Enough said, now it's time to download and install Image Resizer.

Image Resizer is one of freeware provided in Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP.

  1. Download Image Resizer.

    Go to Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP and scroll down about halfway of page. In the right column, you will see ImageResizer.exe in a link. Click it to download to your computer.

  2. Double click the file downloaded (ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe in my case) and follow the instruction to install it.

    After install, there is no program to launch the Programs menu. The only place to lanuch Image Resizer is in the context menu of Windows Explorer when you right click any image(s) and select 'Resize Pictures'.

Happy resizing!
