Easily Resize/Compress Images in Windows 7

A couple of days ago, I was updating my FaceBook account with the pictures I took during my TechEd 2010 visit. The images were of high resolution and there were around 120 of them. I wanted a tool that could easily resize these images.

On searching the net, I found a free tool called Image Resizer. Image Resizer is a clone of the Image Resizer Powertoy for Windows XP -- a PowerToy that allows you to right-click on one or more image files in Windows Explorer to resize them. It was created to extend support to non-XP and 64-bit versions of Windows (including 2000, Vista & 7).

After installing this power toy, all I had to do was right click on the image and choose the ‘Resize Pictures’ option

Clicking it popped up a dialog box

Then I chose the size I wanted and the results were smaller resized images! You can also select all the images in a folder and resize them at once!
