Take note of a few things while filling out the registration page:

  • You are only required to enter your name and e-mail address – everything else is optional.
  • By default the registration page will have the “I want updates/news via e-mail” option checked. You do not need to subscribe to Balesio’s e-mail newletters in order to take advantage of this offer. So if you don’t want to subscribe, uncheck that checkbox.
  • This freebie is for personal use only. Companies, governments, schools, etc. need to purchase a commercial license.

You will get a confirmation message if you have successfully requested a license:

  • Check the inbox of the e-mail you registered with. There should be an e-mail from “balesio Team <>” with the subject of “FILEminimizer Pictures 2.0 – CHIP Vollversion Personal Edition”. In the e-mail you will find a download link, and your registration information:

  • Download and install FILEminimizer Pictures. (The program will be in English.)

    I tried to download the Portable Version, but I got the message “This file is currently set to private. ” 

    Please make it ‘Public’ and post here or send it to madhukk[at]
    Ashraf ,

    I just want to see what the time stamp says when I post.  Thank You, I missed this, but there will be other opportunities. There is the time zones we use here in the U.S. and worldwide to tell time, then there is Greenwich Mean Time I don’t understand, and Internet Standard Time, and then UTC another time measure, so I think Googling time zone standard conversions might help me to figure those all out.

    I really appreciate the opportunities of the site here, and the free software by the way, Ashraf. Thank you, I read your reviews at GOTD and then started visiting the forum here and registered, thank you.

    @Jaap: Yes thank you Jaap I am very aware of the time zones, being a retired navigator.  I was also awareof the time passing and had already submitted my fourth application.  Disappointing, but there will be other times and applications.

    Have made third attempt about half an hour back and still no reply.  Yes by all means it is thanks to Ashraf for finding and publishing these great bargains.  It is still a puzzle on why one gets through and another does not.

  6. George Clarke

    Sorry to say that there is no response after one hour to my registration attempt.  Have sent a second request with slight change to details on form such as reversing first and second names to make it more acceptable.  perhaps there is an exceptional take up for a chance at this very useful tool

    Thanks for another winner, Ashraf (and Murphy). Very handy for quick and easy minimization of images for e-mailing. Thanks, too, for the walkthrough on the German-language procedures.

    @erick: File size only partly affects the “look” of a print. Modern printers can produce excellent prints with a 200k file. Any concerns about minimizing/restoring can be addressed by working with a duplicate file instead of the original.

    I just tried it and shrunk a Jpg picture of my grand daughter from 5.02 MB to 200k.  Using default settings.   That’s a ratio of 50 to 2. Or as my grandson would say “Pop, that’s actually 25 to 1 ”
    Incredible.  Picture looks good to me.  Can’t tell any difference.
    I, too, appreciated the German translation.  Thanks.
