    Default Any freeware photoresizing programs?

    Heya,

    Any freeware for photoresizing to recommend?

    Looking for the following:
    1. Light, utilize little resources
    2. Can batch process
    3. Can set compression ratio and output size

    I can do resizing in PS, but it takes a little too much time for the casual resizing. Currently i use a windows powertool (image resizer), but it's compression ratio is a little too heavy.

    Thanks!

    I just tried irfanview...find that the interface is abit cluttered. Actually i believe most of those recommended here are imageviewers...i'm actually looking out more for purely image resizers.

    eg. Like the windows powertool - image resizer. Allows me to right-click an image and choose the size i want from explorer itself. Very fast and convenient. Only pitfall is its compression ratio is too strong.

    Anyway thanks for the replies so far!

    Try this

    http://www.showyourphotos.com/

    It is free for the first 30 uses.

    But what you can do is to uninstall the program after 30 uses and then re-install again.

    Picture Resizer 2.0
    http://www.rw-designer.com/picture-resize

    Small - one single EXE file, no installation needed
    Easy - drag and drop photo files onto the program's icon
    Powerful - create shortcuts on the desktop with various parameters (file size, compression ratio, sharpenning, setting DPI etc.), or context menu "send to"s for easy operation.
    Free - as in free of charge.
