Frequently I was asked how to resize pictures for viewing on the Internet.

Now that I'm using Windows Vista - I need to look for a replacement to Microsoft's Powertoy. For more information - here is the link that has info on both MS Powertoy (for XP users), and VSO Image Resizer (for Vista user)

I like the convenience to right mouse click on an image to resize.

Image Resizer for Vista (PowerToy replacement)

Windows XP has an excellent utility for quickly resizing a batch of images made by Microsoft called Image Resizer Powertoy. It's a cinch to install and adds a context menu option to resize images by simply right-clicking in Windows Explorer. However, this PowerToy only works on Windows XP.

Fortunately there's a great replacement for image resizing on Windows Vista made by VSO Software called VSO Image Resizer. It works almost exactly like the Image Resizer PowerToy. Select one or more images in Windows Explorer and right-click. A simple UI is shown to set a few options before resizing. The default options should work fine for most people. There are also advance options for renaming, image optimization, etc.
