Resize images from right-click context menu with Free Image Resizer [Windows]September 13, 2012 0 Email article | Print article
Looking for an easy way to resize your images? In Windows, there is none by default. The only way to resize images is to open them in Paint, scale them, and save them. Once you install Free Image Resizer, however, that all changes: you’ll get two context menu items and a full program to let you resize images however you need.
Free Image Resizer is accessible in one of three ways. First, you can just open the program and use it that way. The other two are both context menu options: Resize Images, and Resize Images Pro. Clicking on the non-Pro option lets you resize the images to a set template, while the Pro button lets you resize it to whatever resolution you want.
You can even export the images as a PDF, or compress them into a ZIP file, using the Action pane. It’s overall a nice app, but its annoying Tweet and Like box that pops up on every close can get annoying. If you’re looking for an image resizing app, it’s an option, alongside almost identical apps such as Image Resizer.
