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.
