    Needing to resize digital photos i have recently taken. WinXP had a great little tweaker toy for this...i can't seem to find it in Win7. Is there a small program to do this. In WinXP all one had to do was right click on the image and voila, one could instantly resize an image. Cheers and beers and Happy Holidays:beer_mug:

    There is a ton of picture resizer on the web - have a look. Hard to tell which one you used previously.

    The former Power Toys / TweakUI Image Resizer is no longer compatible with Windows 7 (not even as a standalone application). You may want to take a look at something like this and see if it fills the bill.
    Image Resizer for Windows - Download: Image Resizer 3 Preview 2
    Seems to work OK on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Install. Of course I'm not exactly sure what you are looking for, but it does launch from a right click context menu, similar to what you have mentioned above.

    Not sure what exactly the issue is that you are having. The resizer doesn't actually have any of those menu items.
    You just use the right click context menu and choose Resize Pictures.
    This launches the resizer and you choose the size from the list of set a custom size.
    You evoke the program by first select the picture or pictures you wish to resize and right clicking to get the context menu.

    Quite a while back, my friend and software Guru put me on to a little FREE program called "Photo Filtre". (it's French)
    I set it up as the default viewer for all my picture types.
    It a full featured picture editor, to resize, rotate, add brighness or contrast, add text, change picture type, etc.
    I even use it for quick and faultless "Screen Capture" and 'Screen Print'.

    I put the shortcut to Photo Filtre in the Quick Launch Toolbar for ease of access.

    This picture of my Suzuki SX4, has been cropped, and text added, all with Photo Filtre.

    Did I mention it's FREE?

    For easy download......

    Happy Holidays!
    :cool:
