CNET Editors' review
When all you want to do is shrink or expand an image to a specific size, launching an image-editing application such as Adobe Photoshop, or even GIMP, FastStone, or Paint.NET is overkill. Unburdened by all those powerful effects engines, VSO Image Resizer loads quickly and does you the favor of popping open an image-selection window in the process. The nag screen reminding business customers to buy a license does drag you down each time you open, but it's smooth sailing after that.
VSO Image Resizer accepts hand-typed dimensions in pixels or percentages and offers presets from a drop-down list for common sizes. The expanded mode (click "more") includes controls for safeguarding the aspect ratio and quality, and adding a few color-changing effects. Choosing the output destination and whether to resize the original or create a copy are actions you can take from either mode.
Don't expect to see a preview image or an editor for manual resizing. When it's done, it closes. This no-nonsense approach may be too toughened for your tastes if visual scaling is what you're after, and that autoclosing makes it a pain to use for frequent or sequential resizing. However, on balance, VSO Image Resizer is a speedy, no-fuss solution for one-off resizers who know what they want.
The VSO Image Resizer software organizes your photos by changing their resolution or moving them within your hard drive. VSO Image Resizer is the perfect tool for those who store their digital pictures and images on their PC and who want to resize, compress, convert, create copies, create thumbnails, and import or organize photos.

"The little image re-sizer that could"
Version: VSO Image Resizer 2.1.2
A straight forward image re-sizer that gets the job done, simply. I use it to re-size images for E-mails.
It could look a better but no big deal.
Need to re-size images? Try this one first.Most current version does not install in Vista. Have reinstalled ScreenHunter
This is an unbiased opinion, BTW.

"Don't bother Nag screen on start up unless you BUY it"
Version: VSO Image Resizer 2.1.2
Would be good without a NAG screen
Nag screen every time it is used
Use older version which does not have a NAG screen.
