Hi

I'm using VSO Image resizer, its free and good but the file size is to big for CS. I usually have to convert at 70 to 80+% of its original quality to get it below 100kb.

Any free software to resize but keep to 100% image quality?

none. There is no way you can save with 100% quality yet having a small file size..
if its possible, then there wun even be a need to have different quality

I find Google Picasa to be the best amongst the "free". It can do much what a photographer wants for basic correction including re-sizing, cropping and etc etc. It does conversion with a very very slight loss in quality not visible to the naked eye. If you want to convert a jpg file into 100kb, of course there'd be a very very much loss in quality no matter what software you use. Where to put 'lah' the pixels info/data into such a small file?

Actually, you must do all your resizing in raw or tiff format first and then convert to jpg - minimal loss.

give xnview http://www.xnview.com a try. it runs like acdsee and have some basic image adjustment capability as well as resizing, cropping and renaming.

btw, it's freeware. iirc, there's a paid version with additional features but the free version has served me well.
