Too often we see photo utilities that fall into the trap of having only one feature; they can crop or rotate, for example, and that's it. We feared something similar from Picture Resize Genius, but the program turns out to have many useful features that make it worthwhile.
The program's interface is quite intuitive, with all of its functions well organized down the left side. Users can select one image, multiple images, or a folder full of images to be resized, and the program lists them all by file name for easy access. Users then select the functions that they want to perform, and Picture Resize Genius takes care of the rest. In addition to the expected resizing options, users can add text-based watermarks to images, as well as save them in different formats, including JPG, BMP, GIF, and several others. Users can adjust image quality, rename images, and create a destination folder from within the Output Settings menu. The program also includes a basic image editor, with options for cropping, rotating, and flipping images, as well as controls for adjusting contrast and brightness. Taken together, the program's features create a very easy-to-use suite of basic photo-editing tools.
Picture Resize Genius has a five-day trial period. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users seeking a lightweight way to resize photos and perform other basic photo-editing tasks.
