How To Resize Your Photos the Easy Way

Sometimes you need a quick and easy way to resize your pictures to email, post on your blog, or put on a mobile device. Today we take a look at the Image Resizer Powertoy Clone for Windows that allows you to resize pictures and images.

Image Resizer Powertoy Clone

This is a clone of the popular Image Resizer Powertoy developed for Windows XP. To use it, right-click on a photo and select Resize Pictures from the Context Menu.


In Basic Mode you can select between 4 different sizes…Small (854×480), Medium (1366×768), Large (1920×1080), or Mobile Device (320×480).


Click on the Advanced button to get more options and resize a picture to your own custom size.


It puts the resized image into the same directory as the original with the size type in parenthesis in the file name. Also, I was also able to select multiple pictures at a time and resize them…which saves a lot of time.


It provides an easy way to quickly resize your holiday photos and get them to family and friends through a variety of ways. It’s completely free and works on XP, Vista, and Windows 7 with a version for 32 & 64-bit users.

    Would reccomend using IrfanView instead. Its is much more powerfull application and its batch proccessing function makes it ideal for this task.
