There's no point in firing up a huge image-editing suite when you just need to perform a simple task like resizing or cropping an image. That's why there are programs like Quick JPEG Resize and Crop. It does exactly what the name suggests and nothing more, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. If you find yourself frequently needing to perform these tasks, this program is one of the most efficient ways to get them done.
Quick JPEG Resize and Crop has a simple interface that's quite easy to figure out. Users can navigate to the desired image from within the program's file menu, or simply drag and drop the image onto the program's interface. The image can be cropped either by dragging a box over the desired area or by adjusting the cropped area numerically. To resize images, users can enter the desired size dimensions and also adjust the quality of the image, making it possible to reduce the size of the file without reducing the actual size of the image. Buttons allow users to save the new image by overwriting the original, adding _rsz to the original file name, or saving the file with a new name or to a new location. The program comes with a surprisingly detailed Help file that explains each of its features. We do wish that Quick JPEG Resize and Crop were capable of rotating images, a basic task that often seems to go along with cropping and resizing. But if you need a utility to quickly resize and crop images and do nothing else, this program is about as easy as it gets.
Quick JPEG Resize and Crop comes as a ZIP file. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
