Imager Resizer

Image Resizer

Image Resizer for Windows is a utility that lets you resize one or more selected image files directly from Windows Explorer by right-clicking. I created it so that modern Windows users could regain the joy they left behind with Microsoft’s Image Resizer Powertoy for Windows XP.

Paint.NET

Paint.NET

Paint.NET è un software di manipolazione immagini, scritto in C#, freeware ma con funzioni proprie di software commerciali, come la possibilità di usare layers.

FEATURES:

  • Simple, intuitive user interface.
    • Every feature and user interface element was designed to be immediately intuitive and quickly learnable without assistance. It is also designed to be immediately familiar to users of the original MS Paint software
      that comes with Windows.
  • Layers
    • Usually only found on expensive or complicated professional software, layers form the basis for a rich image composition experience. You may think of them as a stack of transparency slides that, when viewed together at the same time, form one image.
  • Powerful Tools
    • Paint.NET includes simple tools for drawing shapes, including an easy-to-use curve tool for drawing splines or Bezier curves. The Gradient tool, new for 3.0, has been cited as a huge improvement over similar tools provided by other software. The facilities for creating and working with selections
      is powerful, yet still simple enough to be picked up quickly. Other powerful tools include the Magic Wand for selecting regions of similar color, and the Clone Stamp for copying or erasing portions of an image. There is also a simple text editor, a tool for zooming, and a Recolor tool.
  • Unlimited History
    • Everybody makes mistakes, and everybody changes their mind. To accommodate this, every action you perform on an image is recorded in the History window and may be undone. Once you’ve undone an action, you can also redo it. The length of the history is only limited by available disk space.
  • Special Effects
    • Many special effects are included for perfecting your images. Everything from blurring, sharpening, red-eye removal, distortion, noise, and embossing are included. Also included is our unique 3D Rotate/Zoom effect that makes it very easy to add perspective and tilting. Adjustments are also included which help you tweak an image’s brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, curves, and levels. You can also convert an image to black and white, or sepia-toned.
  • Open Source and Free
    • Paint.NET is provided free-of-charge, and the source code (all 133,000 lines of it) is also available for free under generous licensing terms. The bulk of Paint.NET is written in C#, with only a small amount of code
      related to setup and shell-integration written in C++.
  • Changes in Paint.NET 3.5.6:
    • Improved: When pasting an image, Paint.NET will be smarter about ensuring it is placed within the area that has been scrolled/zoomed to.
    • Improved: Performance and quality of the Curves and Hue/Saturation adjustments.
    • Improved: Some minor improvements to memory usage, which should help out a few scenarios on 32-bit systems.
    • Fixed: Copy-paste from a Remote Desktop session will no longer be ‘shifted’ by 3 pixels.
    • Fixed: Copy-paste from Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome should preserve alpha/transparency.
    • Fixed: Copying from Paint.NET and pasting into Windows Live Writer should now work.
    • Fixed: Taking a full-screen screenshot with Print Screen on a multimonitor system, where those monitors don’t form a simple rectangle, will now fill the ‘gap area’ with transparent instead of black. (Example: two monitors of the same size, one of which is rotated by 90 degrees)
    • Fixed: If Paint.NET is opened without specifying an image to open, and then the default image is modified and saved, then Paint.NET will no longer close that image upon opening another one. This was causing
      data loss if that default image had layers, and was then saved in a format that did not support layers (anything other than .PDN).
    • Fixed: Some systems were showing ‘red X’ thumbnails for .PDN files in Windows Explorer, instead of the real thumbnail.
    • Fixed: The EXIF “Creation Software” saved along with images is no longer localized. This prevents certain languages from seeing “Paint.NET ????? v3.5.6” in the image properties (metadata).

Fotosizer

Fotosizer
Fotosizer is a freeware batch image resizer tool. It resizes your photos in just 3 easy steps:

  1. Photo selection
  2. Select resize settings
  3. Start the resize!

Increasingly, sharing photos on the internet is becoming more and more popular. Photos, represented as JPEG files from digital cameras, taken at high resolutions are far too large to send over the Internet, with some photos ending up at 5 mega bytes. Uploading one photo to a photo sharing website is fine, but 10, 20, or even more, this can take forever, especially on a dial-up connection.

With Fotosizer, you can shrink JPEG image files, along with other supported formats, and dramatically reduce internet transfer times, enabling you to quickly and easily prepare your image collections to be published on the web.

Help unlock the photos from your digital camera. Use Fotosizer to batch resize your photos making it easier and faster to email to friends, upload to photo sharing websites or upload to websites that offer photo printing services.

Fotosizer lets you resize in 3 easy steps, allowing you to choose the photos you want to resize, the dimensions, and where you want to save the new photos.

Resize quickly and easily using a preset list of sizes including iPod, iPhone, and Sony PSP screen sizes.
