Editors' review

PhotoRazor provides users with a fast and efficient way of shrinking photos without diluting quality. With only a few commands and impressive results, this will be an asset for frequent photo editors.

The program's interface is an intuitive affair that most will feel instantly comfortable with. By only offering a few well-placed command icons, users will understand almost immediately how the program works. A useful Help file is available. The program begins by users selecting a folder they'd like to convert. Each of the photos is listed along the right side, with one featured in the center of the screen. Along the left side, users are able to customize their shots with two sliders that pick the new photo's size and its picture quality. Users choose a radio button to convert just the photo on screen or the entire folder. They then hit the Convert button and their snapshots are shrunk in a matter of seconds. We were pleased with the results and felt that the smaller images were just as crisp and clear as the larger ones. The program's features include the ability to rotate the photo with a single click. Additionally, users can convert their images to black and white just as simply.

PhotoRazor did install a desktop icon without our permission, but it uninstalled cleanly. With impressive results and simple controls, this freeware program is a winner for those who deal with large images.

    "Nice program but comes loaded with malware"

    February 04, 2013   |   By SailkorJerry

    Version: PhotoRazor 2.5

    Pros

    Nice simple program for reducing photos down to a manageable size whilst maintaining maximum possible quality

    Cons

    I installed it and ended up with blekko and coupon companion adware/spyware which infected Firefox and my PC in general, and I'm not 100% sure I've managed to get rid of. Time will tell. Disappointing as I expected better for a program reviewed on CNet.

    Summary

    Don't bother - it's just not worth it.

    Summary

    I had an older version of this on my WinXP system that crashed & burned. I downloaded the current version on my new Win7 PC. It works very well, no glitches and easy to use.

    "A wonderful and super-easy resizing tool"

    September 21, 2008   |   By Loes_NL

    Version: PhotoRazor 2.5

    Pros

    PhotoRazor is an easy tool to resize images, rotate and colorize/ black/white them and keep a perfect quality.
    The smaller photos are placed in a separate folder, ready to be emailed or used on a website. Easy!

    Cons

    Hopefully a future version can crop photos too. The splash screen when opening the program stays a little long (when clicking on it it doesn't go away, instead it takes you to the website). But okay, that website has other neat programs.
