I wonder how much time people spend tweaking images. While we're overrun with various pictures—downloads from websites, output from digital cameras, and all that—what are the chances that you're going to be able to use this picture or that one without having to get in there and mess with it some way or another. Maybe the colors aren't right, maybe the dog's got that demon-possessed look in his eye from a goofy flash setup, or maybe your image just isn't the right size. There are lots of tools out there to do what needs to be done, but if you're looking only at resizing your images, Photoshop, GIMP, or many of the others may be a lot more horsepower than what you're looking for.

Image Resizer for Windows is a tool with a single purpose in life: take a picture and make it a different size. It comes with some handy preset sizes you might want to use for small, medium, or large screen sizes, as well as a selection for mobile devices and a custom option, that lets you choose the size of your resulting resized image. By default, it will take your image and modify it to make the result be either larger or smaller than the source, but you can set it to only shrink larger images if you prefer. Also, while out of the box it creates copies of your pictures with your desired new dimensions, you can tell it to resize your originals instead. With this option, you'll save space, but you'll probably want to make sure you've got an archival copy of your original somewhere in case you ever need to get back to the unprocessed version.

As you might expect, Image Resizer for Windows is a Windows app. You should be able to use it with Windows 2000 and later.
