Looking for a simple tool to handle all resizing actions of digital images in Windows 7? Then you should consider Image Resizer Powertoy Clone for Windows. In case the name sounds somewhat familiar, it’s because you’re probably thinking of the Image Resizer Powertoy for Windows XP. While the concept behind both projects is the same, fact is that the term “clone” should give away the nature of the new Powertoy. Yes, essentially, Image Resizer Powertoy Clone for Windows has been inspired by the version of the tool designed to run on Windows Vista’s precursor.

What does the power toy do? Well, the label is pretty much self-explanatory, but there are some nuances to resizing digital images. First off, Image Resizer Powertoy Clone for Windows is set up to integrate seamless with the operating system’s graphical user interface. In this regard, users will be able to easily access the Powertoy via Windows Explorer, namely right-clicking on an image and selecting the Resize Pictures option from the contextual menu that will pop up.

The beauty of Image Resizer Powertoy Clone for Windows is that it does not restrict the user to resizing a single picture at a time. Instead, the Powertoy delivers batch resize capabilities, being able to handle multiple images at a time. The tool permits users to create copies of the pictures resized and to store them in the same folder as the original images.

The contextual menu offers end users four default sizes for images: Small – 640x480 pixels, Medium 800x600, Large 1024x768, Handheld 240x320. But in addition to the default settings, Image Resizer Powertoy Clone for Windows also comes with Advanced options. In this regard, the tool also allows end users to enter their own custom resize dimensions. Additional options include setting in place a restriction so that images can be resized to a smaller dimension, but never a larger one, and that no copies will be created, with all changes being applied to the original files.

“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. This clone was created to extend support to non-XP and 64-bit versions of Windows (including Windows 7 & Vista),” reads an excerpt from the description of the Powertoy. “Version 2.0 of Image Resizer Powertoy Clone for Windows has been re-written in C++. Because of this, 64-bit is now supported! Also note that the Alternate UI application has been removed (as it should no longer be needed).”

Quick Image Resizer
I post a lot of images in forums. They don't need to be stepped on in any way. The default image size from my camera is 5184 x 3456. I usually like to post at 1024x683. My default editor is Gimp. While I like it, it is slow to open and requires a bit of fiddling just to do this simple task. ...
