yeah I'm not saying it's not good, it depends of the situation
like resize a 640x480 pic with a 300dpi resolution that will be close to a megabyte
there are as many different ways to do things as there are situations that need different things done.
Personally, anything larger then 640x480 on a forum like this is just too big. I hate having to scroll back and forth to see the whole picture.
But there is a time and a place for everything and for ease of global resizing, not to mention resizing on the fly ~IE: you go to insert a picture into your post but realize it's too large, no need to go to another program to fix it up, merely right click, resize, and WAHLAH,
as they say in the deep south, you got'r done, yer posted and on yer merry way!~ I have to agree with Mr Willy that Microsnot Resizing utility is the TITS!! And I am a regular user of Corel Photopaint 12, Photoshop, Irfanview and quite a few other programs of that type.
