If you’ve recently purchased a new digital camera, you will probably noticed by now the very large file sizes created for each image. While this is usually not a problem for storage of these raw files, it can be an issue when you are trying to email photos or upload them to a web server where smaller file sizes are desired and recommended. If you’ve tried re-sizing photos, it can be a laborious task dealing with each photo separately.
To help you easily resize your photos, here is a link to some software that you will find handy. Go to:
and download the software program (and the GDIPlus if you are using Windows XP or 2000) and install.
1. Open the directory/folder that you have your desired photos in.
2. Open the PicResizer software, set Max Width and Max Height to 1600 (or whatever pixel size you prefer) and Quality to 100.
3. Then select and drag and drop your photo(s) onto the PicResizer window and it will automatically resize the photo(s), create a sub-directory within the original directory (called small by default) and place the re-sized photo(s) in that new directory.
As you can see, I’m also inferring that it will handle multiple selected photos and re-size them all, automatically.
