Picture Resizer

A utility for resizing and cropping multiple image filesWindows

Picture Resizer

Picture Resizer makes resizing and cropping one or more images a breeze. Resizing tens or hundreds of images is no more difficult than resizing one. Image files produced by modern digital cameras tend to be much larger than the native resolutions of most electronic devices - Picture Resizer helps to fit the maximum number of images on the target device and display them without distortion.

Picture Resizer has many uses, possible applications include:

  • Down sizing images for sending via email, which helps keep the overall size down and makes sure the recipient's inbox isn't overloaded.
  • Creating thumbnail images for websites etc.
  • Converting multiple files for Digital Picture/Photo Frames, MP3 players, mobile phones or any other devices with image viewing capabilities.

The main advantages of Picture Resizer over other similar software tools are:

  • Image size presets are used (which can be user-defined) to speed up changes between dimensions. Very useful when you have several devices with different screen sizes.
  • The ability to rename files using date and time information - handy for sorting image files by date.
  • The option to confirm cropping settings with each image - vital for images that are different in composition or subject.
  • Letterboxing with user-defined colours.
