Guide - Resize image faster, without using any image editing software.

Wednesday, April 21, 2010
This guide is for...

1) People who want a quick way to resize their pictures without opening any image editing programs which take considerably long time to load (like paint/acdsee/photoshop).
- commonly happens to... people who blogs, and like to put pictures from their digital camera etc.

2) ...and don't like installing new software. (This guide still requires you to install something though, but it is simply a windows extension rather than a software.)

3) Of course.. using Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

Image Resizer Powertoy
This is a clone of the Image Resizer Powertoy for Windows XP -- a PowerToy that allows you to right-click on one or more image files in Windows Explorer to resize them.

Many people may have solutions of their own. However I still like to stress why this one works better.
1) Only 2 steps... Right click the picture, and choose the resize option. Both take below 0.1 second.
2) Works for multiple pictures. You just select those files, and right-click on them.
3) It is based on Microsoft's powertoys. Microsoft has discontinued creating any more powertoys after XP. So, the creator extended its compatibility with Vista/7. For the less savvy... this implies that, it simply adds a new feature to Windows, instead of installing new program etc.

Download link: go to their website =), it should be more convenient for them that way I think.

Batch editing is a trait that's not uncommon in the photography field. While we need a lot of pictures watermarked or resized, batch editing software or batch image converter be able to take care of it for us...
