    While it's great that newer digital cameras can take beautiful 5-, 6-, or 7-megapixel pictures, e-mailing such large photo files can clog up your recipient's Inbox. Resizing pictures before you e-mail them—or even before you burn them to a CD—is made simpler using a free Windows XP download called the Image Resizer, which is one of the many handy tools that make up the Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP.
    You can also use the Image Resizer to resize photos so they'll fit on a compatible cell phone, personal digital assistant (PDA), or Portable Media Center so you can enjoy your photos while on the go. Using the Image Resizer is easy, and it will preserve your original photos for other uses you may have in the future.
    Using the Image Resizer

    You'll want to begin by making sure your pictures are well organized. Because your digital camera probably gives pictures an arbitrary and confusing name, such as dscn0809.jpg, be sure to rename your photos to something easily identifiable at a glance, such as flowers.jpg. Ordinarily, it's recommended that you make a backup of your original digital photo before resizing it. However, Image Resizer creates a duplicate file in the same folder as your original and resizes the duplicate; your original picture file is not altered in any way during the process.
    1.
    Open the folder that contains the pictures you want to resize. In Thumbnail view, right-click any picture you want to resize, and click Resize Pictures.
    2.
    In the Resize Pictures dialog box, click the size you want your photo to be, and click OK. In general, Small is a good selection for most of your needs, such as e-mailing pictures or posting them to a Web site.
    3.
    The original file, flowers.jpg, is still intact; and a new, resized file, named flowers (Small).jpg, has been added to the same folder.

    Resize multiple photos at once

    To resize a sequence of photos at once, click the first photo in the sequence, hold down the SHIFT key, and click the last photo in the sequence. All the photos in between those that you clicked will be selected. Follow the steps outlined previously to resize the sequence of selected photos.
    To resize nonsequential photos in a folder, click the first photo, and hold down the CTRL key while you click the other pictures you want to resize. Once you have your photos selected, follow the steps outlined previously to resize the selected photos.
    Advanced features

    Image Resizer includes some additional advanced features. Click the Advanced tab to show the following options:
    Custom lets you manually set the size you want for your photos.
    Make pictures smaller but not larger constrains resizing to only sizes smaller than the original photo.
    Resize the original pictures (don't create copies) permanently applies resizing to your original photo.

    With this easy way to resize your pictures, you just might start sharing all your photos—rather than just a few—with your friends and family.

    That's pretty slick. I just installed it. I usually take most of my pictures in email mode and have no problem but I do belong to one hot rod forum that has real tight size restrictions. This should make it easier and faster than using Photoshop.

    I like to use if for the fast sizing, PS takes more time than I sometimes want to fuss with so this works out pretty good.

    I have been using this for several years now and I can say nothing is easier or faster. You can select several photos and resize them all at one time. I usually take the biggest photos my camera will take and resize them to 640X480 for use on the forums.
