Windows 7: Quick Image Resizer

29 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit Retail
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.

Any suggestions?

you could try several different tools for that task
I use this one

Image Resizer Powertoy Clone For Windows 7/Vista

the advantage: it sits in your context menu so you could just right click a bunch of pics and set the options to your liking.

I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager. The app is great and changing image size is as easy as pie!

You could also try It's free BTW

Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for computers that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plugins.

It started development as an undergraduate college senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is currently being maintained by some of the alumni that originally worked on it. Originally intended as a free replacement for the Microsoft Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple image and photo editor tool. It has been compared to other digital photo editing software packages such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel Paint Shop Pro, Microsoft Photo Editor, and The GIMP.

You can use paint for photos, its built into w7, and windows live movie maker 11 comes with w7 but is a separate download, it comes in a package, but you can get only movie maker if you want- just check only it for download etc.. I use both for somethings, but use them lil..>

Windows Live Movie Maker 2011

I like and use [irafan view] for screens and photos, It is easy to use and is free, it can play videos but not edit them. It can batch resize convert and rename all at the same time. It has a screen shot key and can take screens every so many seconds if you want it too..>

IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

I use free [any video converter] for most all my video edits conversions or splits etc. I will use [virtualdub] for some video things or to get screen shots from videos to make animated gif's etc. Virtual dub can make animated gif's on its on from parts of videos, but will be what ever size you photos are. I use free [unfreeze] to make the actual animated gif's.

Free Video Converter - Any Video Converter Free Version - convert video to any formats, avi to MPEG, avi to MP4, flv to MPG

Welcome to! -

UnFREEz 2.1 - WhitSoft Development

I used this as a basic guide to make my animated gif's..>

All the programs I use are free..

See ya..
