I am looking for an easy to use image resizer for someone who is not a computer wiz. I use CS2 myself, but what he needs is something that wont confuse.

What operating system?

If it is XP, then I would recommend the Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx) and their Image Resizer application. It is only a tiny program (521 KB) and just adds a new right-click context menu option. If you right-click over an image file, you will see an option to resize image. Selecting that gives you the options of resizing that image from a small selection of commonly used sizes. It also gives you the option of picking a custom size if you wish. It will not touch the original image and just makes a resized copy. Good for retaining your original images untouched.

My fav is imagetasks (http://www.imagetasks.com/)

Simple to use and can resize in terms of quality/kb easily as well as dimension.

I like IrfanView, mostly its what I use to do resize / cropping because its fast, easy, and I like the ability to save in a variety of formats :)

If you want to resize lots of images at once ( batch resize ) try Irfanview.
Anything you can do to one image in Irfanview it can also do as a batch process.
You can set it loose on a directory ( including sub-directories ) of images and it will do anything you want to all of them as a batch process..

Very handy for photographers that take thousands of pix..

[ the linux eqivalent of Irfanview is gThumb ]
