Giveaway of the Day - iResizer

Advertisement
March 10, 2011This giveaway is not available any more.

iResizer scales an image without changing important visual content such as people, buildings, animals, etc. While normal resizing affects all pixels uniformly when scaling an image, iResizer resizing mostly affects pixels in areas that do not have important visual content.

iResizer lets you shrink or enlarge images to improve a composition, fit a layout, or change the orientation. It is a handy way to resize images non uniformly while preserving the key features of the picture.

You can mark important elements in the image using green marker, this technique is handy if you have areas of the image that you want to retain at the expense of other areas and it can be used to protect people in the image as well. You can also use red marker to select which features of the image should be discarded.

You can find a Video Guide here.

  1. If you use GIMP, you can try LqR filter. Of course, the most current versions of Photoshop includes the Content Aware filter that does this. Still, might be cool to have a stand-a-lone for this too. Maybe others will give it a try, but still cool that you are offering this one to the masses. Thanks GAOTD. :)

  2. This is a nice little app, but if you want to “discard” objects in your photo, it only works if you are shrinking the photo. If you enlarge the photo, the “discard” function (where you paint the object in red) does not work. If you want a more full “discard” function you need to also use InPaint (or an equivalent type app.)

    Would be far more useful if this app was combined with InPaint so you could have easy access to the best of both in one app.

    It would also be more helpful if after you resize your photo and decide to undo and try different parameters (change the height or width) the app would retain the objects/areas you had already highlighted in green (for protection) and red (for discarding.)

    While it is not free, folks may want to check out….

    http://tintguide.com/en/imageresize.html

    and compare it with iResizer and InPaint.

    Currently, I’d rather go with the Image Resize Guide for $45 than iResizer for free.

    Your mileage may indeed vary.

  3. As it states, the concept of iResizer is to preserve key features within a photograph when enlarging it or when scaling it down – by painting upon or around the subject you wish to retain. It does seem to work quite well ( see their video http://www.iresizer.com/video-guide.html ) and could prove quite useful so it may be worth adding to your collection of picture “touch-up” programs via GOTD.
    If you don’t have Photoshop CS4/Cs5 (content aware resizer) then try
    Image Resize Guide Lite – http://tintguide.com/en/imageresize.html .

    Slightly off topic – The other day GOTD offered us Image Assistant but for those who who required something deeper than the easy-to-use Image Assistant or add to the usual Irfanview, XnView etc, then perhaps you could try some of the following:
    For noise reduction etc. in photos, I’d recommend HeliconFilter4.93, http://www.heliconsoft.com/filter_downloads.html (learning curve is not too steep and a good Help guide is provided within – but it will probably take a little time for those new to photo manipulation to master but it’s worth it) also try their HeliconPhotoSafe) which is an excellent piece of software as is NDNoise which is available for both Linux & Win as well as Mac, and for those who require noise plugin for Photoshop, Infranview, XnView, Paint Shop Pro etc., then perhaps give .http://www.ximagic.com/d_index.html a go or try the free version of Neat Image.
    For those who dabble with drawing/paint programs then you may be interested in an all round free editing/drawing suite called Chasys Draw IES Artist which can be downloaded from http://download.cnet.com/Chasys-Draw-IES/3000-2192_4-10909426.html.
    Hope this helps someone.
