Using Windows Image Resizer for Windows XP

If you don’t already have the Image Resizer installed on your computer you can download it for free from the following Web site:

You will find the link in the right column of your screen titled “Image Resizer”.
    1. Download “ImageResizer.exe”
    2. Save it to your desktop
    3. Double-click the “ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe” on your desktop
    4. Follow the directions in the wizard to install the software

Usually, it is a good idea to make a backup of your original file before resizing it. With Image Resizer a duplicate file will be created in the same folder with no modifications to the original.

After the software is installed follow these directions to resize your images:
    1. Open the folder that contains the pictures you want to resize. Right-click any
    picture you want to resize, and click “Resize Pictures”.

    2. In the Resize Pictures dialog box, click the size you want your photo to be
    (small, medium, large or handheld), and click OK. In general, Small (640 X 480) is
    a good selection for e-mailing pictures or posting them to a Web site.

    3. The original file is still intact and a new, resized file, named “filename
, has been added to the same folder.

Resize multiple photos at once:

To resize a sequence of photos at once, click the first photo in the sequence, hold down the SHIFT key, and click the last photo in the sequence. All the photos in between those that you clicked will be selected. Follow the steps outlined previously to resize the sequence of selected photos.

To resize photos scattered throughout a folder, click the first photo, and hold down the CTRL key while you click the other pictures you want to resize. Once you have your photos selected, follow the steps outlined previously to resize the selected photos.

Advanced features:

Image Resizer includes some additional advanced features. Click the “Advanced” tab to show the following options:
    • Custom, lets you manually set the size you want for your photos.
    • Make pictures smaller but not larger, constrains resizing to only sizes smaller
       than the original photo.
    • Resize the original pictures (don't create copies), permanently applies resizing
       to your original photo.
