Nice, but I bet many already have software on their Windows computers which will accomplish the same thing.
If you have MS Office you should have MS Office Picture Manager as part of the package. If not you can probably go back and install it from the DVD.
MS also has their free Image Resizer Powertoy for Windows XP. It does not work under Vista but there is another free version available for Vista. I did a post on it in a thread about 3 years ago on how to post photos to the forum.
The advantage (to me) of the Image Resizer Powertoy and its Vista counterpart is that they both can be quickly enabled with a right-click of the mouse. You can choose to resize w/o overwriting the original or you can replace the original. While the Image Resizer Powertoy does not offer as many options as the pixresizer software Mark talks about here, there are less steps required to quickly resize an image for use in an email or for inclusion in a post here on the forum.
I like the look and all the output options available using pixresizer, and I will probably download a copy and give it a go.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
