Image Resizer for Windows offers an easy and quick manner to resize pictures with one single click. It's a clone of the Windows Resizer PowerToy that was available for Windows XP, and was designed to work with recent versions of Windows. This utility helps you conveniently resize one or multiple selected pictures via the context menu on Windows Explorer, without the need to open an image editor.
Image Resizer has the advantage of being lightweight and easy to install and use. Since it works as a Windows shell extension, all you need to do is select the photo or photos you want to modify, and click the option in the right-click menu. A small dialog window will show up, offering several resizing alternatives. Apart from the default sizes (small, medium, large, and mobile) Image Resizer lets you set custom sizes using pixels, centimeters, inches, or percentages.
Besides that, the application provides a few other options, which include the possibility of replacing the original images or shrinking pics. And in future versions we can expect extra settings like editable default sizes.
In short, Image Resizer for Windows is definitely a great alternative for those who need to resize or batch resize images on a regular basis since it works flawlessly with all common image formats.
