Free Windows tool No. 6: Image Resizer for Windows
Once upon a time, the Windows XP PowerToys project included a fabulous, simple, fast image resizer. Right-click on a photo fresh out of your camera, choose Resize Pictures, and the photo’s reduced in size to a fraction of the original. But XP came and went, and Microsoft didn’t keep the PowerToys updated. Enter Brice Lambson, a Microsoft employee with a heart of gold – and a mission to bring the free Image Resizer PowerToy to the latest versions of Windows. The updated PowerToy installs in seconds, and works without a hitch. Microsoft still doesn’t support Image Resizer. But you can submit tech support questions on the download site, and they’re likely to be answered by Brice himself.
