    Default Pic size reduction

    Friend asked how to reduce pic size on his XP computer,told him to right click on a pic and there he would see resize picture in the drop down box,he says it's not there.
    Is there some- thing one has to download to get that option?

    I might add it is there on my XP os.

    MS have a Image Resizer , its free Download here Look for Image Resizer, can change to several different sizes.

    I also use VSO Image Resizer as well.--- More features - does batches of Pics as well

    Simply right click on the Pic you want, select Resize and a box opens to let you select what you want -- Applies to both apps.

    If you go to my pics and click on a single pic,the option to resize is there as mentioned,if I click on a folder of pics,then it is not there.
    There is also the mail option available.
    Seems funny I am the only one with this option?

    I do have power toys for XP,which maybe what Met meant?

    I will resort to Wai's ideas if he can't get what I have.

    Links for Powertoys and VSO Image Resizer:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx

    http://www.vso-software.fr/products/...ge_resizer.php

    I have both. VSO has more features but I usually use Powertoys as it loads about 0.3 seconds faster and the user interface is easier to use in a hurry.

    If the resize image is not available in XP try this

    Click Start, Run and type regsvr32 shimgvw.dll

    Restart Windows for the changes to take effect
