Here's one (http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/). There's also a 64 bit version, if you use 64 bit

I am now trying the 64 bit one Wainuitech mentioned rather than the 65 bit version that nmercer came up with :-0

Looks ok too.

Thanks lads,will try those.

None seem as good as the windows power toys,where you just had to right click the pic and reduce to size required.

I read that the windows one was written by the lads at Microsoft in their spare time,just for XP.

The one I posted has that ability and powertoys were not written by Microsoft.

"PowerToys for Windows XP

PowerToys are additional programs that developers work on after a product has been released to manufacturing. Windows XP PowerToys are designed for Windows XP, Tablet PC, and Media Center PC."

Microsoft didn't release PowerToys. They were done by Microsoft employees in
their spare time (sort of a gift to the Window user community) and were
unsupported by Microsoft. Maybe the employees currently do not have any
spare time.

I don't think that all powertoys for XP were written by Microsoft employees.

But I could be wrong.

Who cares so long as the one you want works for whoever especially you in this case?

Right click and resize and the one I downloaded does just that under Win7 Pro 64 bit.

The other I had recommended does batch resizing.

Suck it and see.
