Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes I get asked questions that aren't speciffically related to using the software. I'll try to provide answers to those questions below.
  • How can I donate to the Image Resizer project?
Call me crazy, but I don't accept donations. My employer pays me enough to code. Everything I do outside of work, I donate to the community for free. The biggest contribution you can make is to spread the word: Tweet, Like, blog about, or do whatever you do to let your friends know just how handy this little utility can be!
  • What formats does Image Resizer support?
By default, image files with the following extentions can be resized: bmp, dib, gif, ico, jpe, jpeg, jpg, png, tif, tiff, wdp. However, Image Resizer will also be able to use any Windows Imaging Codecs (WIC) that have been installed. For example, after installing the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack, vendor-specific formats from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Pentax, Leica, Minolta, Epson, and Panasonic can also be resized.
  • Does Image Resizer use nearest-neighbor, bilinear, or bicubic interpolation?
Starting with version 3, Image Resizer actually uses a Fant resampling algorithm, which produces a higher quality output than all of these. For more information on the algorithm, see A Nonaliasing, Real-Time Spatial Transform Technique.

App seems to be working just fine, downloaded on my HP TouchSmart All-In-One Desktop running Windows 8.1...

I've posted the reply from my FTP server and SmartFTP prgm; Image Resizer causes intermittant freezing of my computer. Removed Sizer, problem stopped. Waiting for Image Resizer ver XX to resolve. According to SmartFTP, problem lies in a shell.dll file.

It did work well for resizing but it does not offer the option to put the pictures in a specific folder. I ended up with the original and resized all intermingled in one folder.

Yea!!!! I found what I was looking for! Sorta, that is...When my laptop died, and with it my XP professional, and the Tinypic Power toy re-sizer, and then the new laptop with Windows 7 on it, and no more re-sizer......until I found the Image re-sizer clone....YES!, a big success! Thank you, for doing the clone. It works just like the old version I used to have. It worked well with multiple photo images, and was very easy to use after the easy installation.....
