Fast Image Resizer

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Jul 27, 2010

We resize images all the time--to e-mail to friends, post on blogs, share on Facebook, and much more. Although we often resize images in a photo-editing program as soon as we take them off the camera, it's not uncommon for us to need a resizing tool that can be used the rest of the time. After all, who wants to launch a big photo-editing program for tasks that can be completed with a lightweight utility? That's where Fast Image Resizer comes in. This basic program lets users resize images as quickly and easily as anything we've seen.

The program's interface is plain, just a small square with a couple of buttons and a dropdown menu. To resize an image, simply select the desired resolution from the drop-down menu, drag and drop the image onto the program's interface, and the program will automatically resize the image and save it in the original folder, a subfolder, or a different folder of the user's choosing. The program comes with nine preset resolutions in the drop-down menu, but users can add custom sizes as well. Users can also choose whether to save the image as a JPG, BMP, or PNG file, and the program lets users rotate images and optionally copy EXIF information from the original file. The program's online Help file is well-written and thorough. Overall, Fast Image Resizer is a fairly basic program and doesn't have as many features as some others we've seen, but it does a great job of quickly resizing images with very little hassle.

Fast Image Resizer installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
