If you've got photos you need to resize, and want to do it quickly, with no muss and fuss , you'll want Free Picture Resize Starter.

Free Picture Resize Starter resizes your photos, but does much more as well, including zooming, cropping, rotating, sharpening, softening and changing the contrast and brightness.

To resize a photo, open it in Free Picture Resize Starter, enter a new size, and the program goes about its work.

You can resize using a variety of measurements, including pixels, millimetres, and centimetres, among others. Before you resize, Free Picture Resize Starter tells you how many kilobytes the resized photo is, compared to the original.

In addition, you'll be told how much time it will take to send the photo via email.

Free Picture Resize Starter's photo-editing tools are on the righthand side of the screen. Choose one, select your options, and you'll be able to see previews of the finished photo as you work, so that you can alter your changes.

Particularly useful is the fact that Free Picture Resize Starter includes batch mode. That way, you can resize multiple photos in a single pass.
