Free Picture Resize Starter

CNET Editors' review

This program aims not just to resize images but to optimize them for particular purposes. Picture Resize's interface looks welcoming, and the minimal help displays right in the interface. A pull-down list lets you resize images to make them suitable for e-mailing, burning to a photo disc, displaying in an instant-messenger program, or publishing online. The Make It Fit utility helps you find image parameters that will create a file of a specific size.

The program also helps you instantly resize multiple files. You can set the Custom option easily, though apparently you can't edit the presets. However, you will find a built-in image editor with basic features, such as drawing tools and a rotation utility. The included tools for creating slide shows and icons are fairly basic, but we consider them nice bonuses.

Folks looking for an easy-to-use image-resizing application with a few useful extras should give this one a try.

    "Too slow for my needs."

    June 8, 2013  |   By netexports

    Version: Free Picture Resize Starter 4.5.10

    Pros

    Resizes as advertised.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to load the images beings processed, very inconvenient if you're resizing 50+ large images at a time.

    Summary

    I found Fotosizer to be more suitable to the task.

    "Photo editing software performance"

    June 6, 2013  |   By Dottiew428

    Version: Free Picture Resize Starter 4.5.10

    Pros

    - The purpose is not just to resize images but to optimize the interface displayed. drop-down list allows you to resize the image to fit the e-mail, burn disc images, displayed in a program-instant messenger, or online publishing

    - Easy customization options, though obviously you can not edit the presets. However, you will find a built-in image editor with basic features, such as drawing tools and a utility back. The tools included for creating slide shows and icons are pretty basic

    Cons

    interface is easy to use, widely used and multiple users

    "Awesome image editor!"

    May 29, 2013  |   By Mercedesv269

    Version: Free Picture Resize Starter 4.5.10

    Pros

    The good thing of app is that it hits right into the instant need of users like fast food: it is the answer to the question: why not to use Picasa. this is what i want to resize a batch of images instantly. this apps resizes very fast and quality of resized images is as good as it was configured.

    Cons

    it works beautifully for me. no cons.

    "Great free picture editor!"

    May 20, 2013  |   By Tonab4

    Version: Free Picture Resize Starter 4.5.10

    Pros

    as its name, this app suits me, a starter. it produces resized pictures with great quality. it can resize quite fast even with a batch of pictures. resizing a picture with a few clicks, that's wonderful.

    Cons

    i would be much happier if it can connect with FB so i can upload resized pictures to my FB right away!

    "Keep good image Quality !!!"

    May 15, 2013  |   By shelaz976

    Version: Free Picture Resize Starter 4.5.10

    Pros

    change the size of your pictures, rotate, convert and optimize them, as well as apply several image adjustments (e.g. brighten, contrast, sharpen, soften).

    Cons

    The features offered by Free Picture Resize Starter are pretty limited. You cannot even configure program settings (e.g. enable the tool to minimize to system tray). Plus, the interface is outdated.

    Summary

    Simple-to-use program requires a very low amount of system resources (which is barely noticeable), has a good response time, quickly finishes a conversion job and manages to keep a good image quality in the output images.
