Editors' review

Sure, Photoshop and its many clones do it all, but most of the time we just want a fast, easy-to-use tool for resizing or renaming a batch of images, or converting formats. Kevin Schneider's Easy Image Modifier fits that bill. It does those basic tasks and also modifies image borders, flips and rotates images, adds watermarks, and more. Easy Image Modifier is compact, portable, and (best of all) free. Recent updates include support for IFF images.

Easy Image Modifier opened with a Help-Get Started dialog describing the program's four steps: 1) Load images; 2) Configure Settings; 3) Begin Process; and 4) Result. A tool tip noted that many items in Easy Image Modifier also show text tips when you hover the cursor over them. Clicking OK closed the welcome screen and uncovered the main interface, which is also a dialog, with a menu bar, navigation sidebar, main window, and Load Image, Load Folder, and Process buttons. The Advanced Help menu includes extras like Wildcards, Placeholders, and Tips and Tricks. The sidebar menu lists Easy Image Modifier's Editing tools: Rotate/Flip, Resize, Add Padding, and Add Watermark; plus Sort, Edit File Properties, Change Format (JPG, PNG, BMP), and Rename -- everything we need.

We added some images. Easy Image Modifier has a neat way of displaying a selected item's thumbnail in a pop-up view next to the file list. Each tool proved easy to use. For example, the padding tool let us pad the image border to a chosen resolution (up to 1024 x 768) with a choice of filling: color, transparency, or pixel resolution. There is no fruit or cream filling, but clicking Color opened the next best thing, a yummy color picker. Our images processed super-quickly and appeared in the default Output folder on the desktop -- one of many options we could access in Easy Image Modifier's Settings, including EXIF, window, and after-processing options. This is an awesome little tool that can tackle some big jobs, but we especially like the way it makes quick work of day-to-day image editing tasks.

    "Feature Limited Editor"

    January 01, 2012   |   By ninja660

    Version: Easy Image Modifier 4.5

    Pros

    Couldn't find any here.

    Cons

    If you want an editor, try GIMP .. more features and it's not feature limited as the 'Free' version is here.

    Summary

    Look elsewhere for a better editor.

    "My search for a good compressor is over!!!"

    April 12, 2011   |   By howardferns

    Version: Easy Image Modifier 4.0

    Pros

    You can add a whole folder of photos with the greatest of ease, and very quickly shrink them all in one go. That to me is the prime feature of this product.

    Cons

    I'd like to see a bigger range of compression percentages.

    Summary

    In my search for a fast and easy to use photo compressor for archiving, I've looked at many and tried a few. Most didn't meet my requirements, some were quite good, but this one is the best overall for its ease of use, its speed, and of course it is free.

    Updated on Oct 29, 2012

    While this is another of my "can't do without" progs, the 28 September 2012 update from 4.5 to 4.7 would not work for me. After 3 attempts I was left with 4.5 on completion. Furthermore my emails to report the problem to the developer bounced, which makes me fear the worst. But I was able to get the latest version by doing an uninstall and then a new install.
