Image resizing is very important especially for people who develop websites, as they have to upload images of different sizes to different sections of the web page. Larger size means that the image will take more space, more time to upload and consequently increase the loading time of the web page for users. Other than that, if you are a fan of upload your pictures to Facebook or any other social network, resizing them will greatly speed up the uploading process. Previously, we have covered a lot of image resizing applications for Windows, such as Plastiliq ImageResizer, Shrink O’Matic and ImBatch. Today, we have another image resizing application called Fotosizer, which allows you to shrink image files, enabling you to quickly prepare your image collections for publishing on the web. The application supports TIF, JPG, PNG, BMP, TGA and GIF image formats. More on Fotosizer after the break.
The developer has listed the following features of Fotosizer on the product page.
- Choose to resize by percentage of width and height
- Choose to set custom width and height
- Maintain aspect ratio
- Choose where the resized images will be saved
- Change image quality
- Parameterised output filenames: Choose the format of the output filenames using parameters such as new image width/height, current date, number of image in the list being resized
- “Auto-save” of settings on exit
- Resize portrait and landscape photos at the same time
- Resize quickly and easily using a preset list of sizes including iPod, iPhone, and Sony PSP screen sizes
- Change Print DPI settings
Moreover, the application allows you to copy image metadata after resizing, lets you do batch rotation, and includes multiple effects for photos including Sepia, Black & White and Negative.
To resize images, simply drag and drop them over the interface to add them to the list. Now, choose the required settings from the right side, such as Custom Size or Percentage of Original Size, Destination Folder, Output Format, and configuration settings for applying different effects to the images.
Open the Option settings menu from the right side to specify the Effects, Rotation and other settings for the selected images. Click Start when all settings are done.
The Option dialog box (accessible from top-right corner) allows you to choose the language and the image types which can be added to the application. You can select between JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, GIF and TGA image formats.
Fotosizer has a memory foot print of 7.5 MB and works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of all Windows.
