Editors' review

High Quality Photo Resizer is a lightweight image editor replete with options. Unfortunately, it also suffers from some snags.

The interface is basic and mostly text based. You start off by loading an image or group of images. It's frustrating that you can't drag-and-drop images or add an entire folder, although you can select multiple images and add them that way. You then choose one of eight output formats, including JPEG and TIF, and set the output size. Users can manually set the height and width or use a preset, but the "preserve aspect ratio" option didn't work for us. That's a pretty major flaw.

The next step offers users a wide range of effects to add. The changes include converting the image to black and white, posterizing, sharpening, adjusting the contrast, adding noise, and more. After you make your edits, you can preview the image. This process was a bit odd, though, with the preview pane taking up the entire screen and only showing one image out of a batch job.

Still, HQPR offers resizing and more in a tiny bundle for free, and you can't argue with that.

    "Just fine for what I needed !"

    July 14, 2010   |   By Drhombeat

    Version: High Quality Photo Resizer 5.02

    Pros

    I had some PCD files to open and I was looking for a program to open and convert those pictures to JPEG and I found this program. It's true there's no "fancy frills" but it's FREE, light, works just fine for a easy basic conversion !

    Cons

    Nothing to say here !

    "Install error-not completed."

    June 04, 2009   |   By danajohnson

    Version: High Quality Photo Resizer 4.5

    Pros

    Written as a partially good program, with deficiencies stated.

    Cons

    Attempts to install result in an error on XPP sp3 with full accessory Windows dll.s, and Windows add-ons.

    Summary

    May retry the installation, but the other reports of errors upon installation should have resulted in a corrected program attempt at some point. I'll wait for the next version perhaps, one with fewer 'bugs'.
    Below is the link to the precise error statement on XPPro, P4.

    .
    Are all the errors upon install, the same?
    I'll try the next version, or correct this machine, but the error does not 'que' a solution attempt by the program, nor the installer program.

    Linked instructions:
    http://www.naturpic.com/resizer/index.html
    At the bottom of this product page is the instructions for VISTA, and possibly other users, to simply ignore the error message, and proceed with installation by hand selection. I haven't tried that, can't advocate you try it, but, it may install successfully as Naturpic Software instructed. The instruction indicates that the problem is known to Download.com, to Naturpic, and to many prior installing users. It also is the only location I have seen the admission, and instructions.
    If you try this install over-ride, please give a review to inform others.

    Updated on Jun 5, 2009

    Over-riding the advisement box does work, resizing is cryptic but workable. Many alterations listed, multiple file types read/written, generally good, but for the small 'browse' box, which limits the ability to see the altered image in detail at 1:1. Also as others warned the image size 'jumped' a few pixels during the process both 'x&y' but I don't know why.
    Reasonably pleased.

    "Good results but disposable software"

    November 15, 2007   |   By anastamosis

    Version: High Quality Photo Resizer 4

    Pros

    Good results, pretty fast, nice fun options,

    Cons

    It can be used only once after installation ... i am using a Windows Vista Home Premium machine ... On starting the software second time it says ... Component 'Xwpdlx20.ocx' or one of its dependecies not correctly registered: a file missing or invalid ... If I re install it , then it works but again for just one time !!

    "Good for what it does, but..."

    November 15, 2007   |   By duepeace

    Version: High Quality Photo Resizer 4

    Pros

    Works as advertised, handy little tool.

    Cons

    It's hard to recommend this given the rather unbeatable Irfanview - for 400KB extra, you get a ton more features. Including batch resizing, of course. And with additional plug-ins to boot. HQPR kind of becomes redundant in this way.
