If you take digital photographs (and who doesn’t, these days?), you probably find that you need to resize them at times in order to make practical use of them.
Nowadays, even fairly low-end smart phones take photographs with millions of pixels. This is great for quality, and for retaining detail when printing out large photos, but even a 3 megapixel image is sufficient to produce a 5”x7” photo-quality print.
So, much of the time you end up with photo files that are of a higher quality than you really need for many modern purposes, such as uploading to Facebook or emailing to friends. In these cases, the large file sizes are more of a hindrance than a help, and that’s where image resizers come in.
Here’s a list of ten image resizers that won’t cost you a single penny:
PicResize is an online service that you can access via a Web browser. You simply find the photo you want to use on your computer, upload it using a simple interface, then crop, resize, and add effects as needed. It’s very simple and does the job with no hassle.
Resize Your Image is another web-based service, and one that’s stripped down to the basics. Sometimes, however, the basics are all you need.
Web Resizer is another online tool that keeps things simple, but we particularly like the way it instantly shows the impact of the changes you are making in terms of pixels and file size.
It may seem a little strange to include the iPhone in a list of image resizers, but if you use an iPhone it may help you to know that an image resizer is built in. Simply email one (or several) photos, and you are automatically given resizing options, and told the total email file size as part of the process.
Pixlr Express is more than just an image resizer—it’s a full web-based image editor, but it makes resizing photos very easy. When you save your photo, you can drag a quality slider and see the filesize impact immediately.
Picasa takes things even further, and is a full downloadable photo organizer and editor that’s free for Mac and PC. Needless to say, image resizing is built in, and you can even add watermarks at the same time—ideal for web uploading and blogging.
Resize Me! is a free resizer for Android devices that you can download from the Google Play Store. It’s quick and simple, and has some good user reviews.
If you’re an iPhone devotee, Blend Lab is worth a look. Free from the Apple app store, this handy app does image resizing but also lets you play with lots of simple filters, gradients, and effects.
Fotosizer is the perfect choice if you’ve got a bunch of images that you want to resize in one go. You may need to do this often if you run a blog or upload images to Flikr. The program (for Windows only) is simple and completely free.
Batch Resizer is another Apple App Store find that is perfect for those who use their iPhone as their main camera. You can resize lots of images at a time, and then email them or upload them to a Dropbox folder.
