Changed computers. Had an old 'HP Image Zone' program on the old one that I used to shrink pics to email size.

Any recommendations for any freeware programs to just 'resize' images?

What is your new operating system?

If a Windows, right click on the .jpg file and then click on "Edit". Click "Resize"...

As an aside, I "always" make a copy of the original (same method - right click/copy/paste) then crop/edit/resize the COPY.

I use a small window addon called image resizer. It makes a copy in the smaller size. It gives an option of the size you want to convert it to.

The 'edit' default to 'Paint' that CC mentioned, works in a pinch, but the old program I had would resize as many as you wanted in one whack, and had an automatic 'email size'. I'll see if an updated version is available.

Sometimes I have to send multiple pics to out of town customers.

Some software that I used to use did that... Can't recall the name of it now.

Let us know if/when you figure it out. wink

This is the one I use. You can do as many images as you want all at once.

Tried Jd's suggestion, pretty simple and looks a bit antiquated, but it will resize a whole folder full real quick, and then creates a separate folder for all the resized pics.

Looks like a keeper.
