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.

June 08, 2013  |  By netexports

2013-06-08 02:22:20  |  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.

"Does not work on OS Win7"

February 02, 2013  |  By fotobarje

2013-02-02 03:25:52  |  By fotobarje

 |  Version: Free Picture Resize Starter 4.5.10

Pros

No pros find

Cons

Does not work on OS Win7 64 bit. Missing some dll, not included in installation

Summary

I do not recommend for users Win7 -64. Maybe that the installation file is corrupted or simply not adjusted for OS. Due to this, the computer got crazy and seems to erase the installed program by securities incorporated.

"Watch Installation of Extra Apps"

January 11, 2013  |  By Dierkdk

2013-01-11 17:37:30  |  By Dierkdk

 |  Version: Free Picture Resize Starter 4.5.10

Pros

Free basic picture resizer with a handful of (very) basic editing funtions.

Cons

Default Installation will put Babylon browser bar, DropDownDeals, and FreeOnlineBackup on your machine. The option to DECLINE these apps is a Gray Button against a Gray Bar - with a Bright Green "NEXT" encouraging rapidly flipping through the install screen.

Summary

Caught the Optional (But DEFAULT) Extra Apps, and PicResizer did install without them. Funky looking & basic interface - not intuitively User Friendly, so a visit to Help is called for.
Was hoping for Quick & Simple solution to resizing photos, but not convinced this is any easier than Paint.net - or half a dozen other options.

"Load the Picture, Pick the Size, Done"

February 28, 2011

2011-02-28 15:46:07

 |  Version: Free Picture Resize Starter 4.5.10

Pros

Very intuitive to use, powerful for the functions included, has defaults for common use for those not familiar with what size might be right, just the right amount of tools for the casual user. Batch mode was a nice plus.

Cons

None for me.

Summary

This is one of those gems you just stumble across, I needed to resize some pics and don't do a lot of that kind of work, and I did not need the complexity of a high end photo tool, this really hit it perfectly, all the features I needed for resizing and some picture manipulation. The actual job I got it for was done a few minutes after loading this, if I needed more I would gladly pay them, the program loads clean, no call home updaters, installs clean, and does just what it says.

"Did not work well for me."

August 31, 2010  |  By warbear1

2010-08-31 06:13:17  |  By warbear1

 |  Version: Free Picture Resize Starter 4.5.10

Pros

It did two things I needed just badly.

Cons

It was Ozzy Ozborne on Purple Haze smoking Thailand Hashish to use,, form Hell.

Summary

I needed to turn a picture upright, enlarge it and enhance the picture' appeal i,e fix the face. Well it turned it fine. It enlarged it fuzzy after that it was a nightmare program for me. All sorts of bizarre images appeared as I tried to use it. There was no way to correct the image so in the end I deleted it.
