Simply drag a few images or even an entire folder containing many images onto the program icon and the folder containing the resized images will open automatically.

Licence details ???

Reply   |   Comment by JEDIGEG  –  27 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

At the moment my comment/question has -3 votes .

Usually the licence details info is available in the description box .
In fact it's clearly visible in the description box of the other program that is given away today
(AnyMP4 TransMate 1.0.16) .
When I've posted my question the licence details where missing from both the description box and
the comments section of the page .
So , my question is legitimate .
I have the right to know the licence details , before I spent time and money , downloading this offer .
Also , the comments are always read by the Moderator and sometimes by the Developers .
So , my question was aimed more at them than at the other commenters .

Now .... I would like to ask the persons that down-voted my comment/question , two things .

1)
Is the licence details visible anywhere in this page and I don't see it ???
If yes, please tell me where ...

2)
Do you (somehow) have this info ???
If you do , please share it .

Thank you .

I have no idea why all the thumbs down as I consider this to be a perfectly reasonable question

If I have some important family photos and my sister would like a digital copy of said photos. I can send them in a zip file and I assume what is unzipped to be an exact copy of my file, whereas, this program only send a poor quality version of the same photo. from what other have remarked.

Why must everyone be o n the attack all the time.

Berger3, if you are refering to your earlier comment you were asking for the impossible so people found it not useful... as that is what the yes no votes on a comment mean... thumbs down and thumbs up are the user votes rating the entire giveaway on offer today and nothing to do with any comment or question usefulness ratings.

Many email programs will automatically resize pictures attached to an email. Some email clients ask you first, others may not. Some email clients will not resize an attached JPG file if you use an attach file option rather than attach photo. Unless the photos are uncompressed BMP or uncompressed TIF files there will be little or no reduction in file size by trying to compress them with ZIP Deflate compression method. Another option is to use some free cloud storage space like onedrive or google drive or dropbox and upload the photos to the chosen cloud drive and share the photos either as an entire folder of photos or individually and have the cloud drive generate the special URLs that you then email to your sister. Once again it is likely the majority of readers will not find this comment thread usefull since it is nothing to do with what this giveaway claims to do. No published comments have attacked you personally for your off topic questions one was a little sarcastic but that's still not attacking anyone. Also remember your published comment never mentioned you had a specific digital photograph comunication need. No idea if your original comment did include it but the published one did not. Please be aware that our comments may not be published as originally typed since site adminstrators can and do silently edit users comments as they did with one of mine earlier today and may well do with this one too!

If you must attach photos to emails I recommend only sending one attached photo per email and not try to send several full resolutions photo attachments in a single email as doing so puts undue strain on connection durations and could result in some mail software timing out or some email server rejecting overly large emails.

Berger3, when you shrink an image file you loose information as it discards it to make the image smaller. When you compress it, such as a zipped file, you loose information but it can be rebuilt because of the type of lost information. Keep in mind that all digital files are a series of "1's" or "0's", an off/on type of system and not a wave. The reason for the 'thumbs down' as you have queried may be based upon a the notion that explaining it should be 'common' knowledge and given that type of audience they are ignorant of anyone lacking the knowledge. It is not your fault, rather theirs. What is required of you, however, is education about the technical sided of digital manipulation and I would suggest you do some investigation.

I use XnShell extension, free and super easy to use with a right click in the Windows File Explorer.
XnView, IrfanView, FastStone....all are good.

JiM,

FWIW, I prefer XnView [xnview[.]com] because of its ability to also rotate jpg images without recompressing -- true lossless.

I downloaded this. Fortunately made a restore point before install. The software EULA insists that you also agree to install Adobe code because it uses some element from Adobe. I then installed the software, got the serial code and duly activated the software. The user interface is very minimal and amateurish.
It cannot open a folder. You have to manually click and pull selected photos on to the top left corner patch. I chose to output to my preferred folder.
Guess what? It crashed. FAILED to work. An error window message popped up. It read as follows:
...............................................
Server Busy
This action cannot be completed because the "Fast
Resize" program is not responding. Choose "Switch
To" and correct the problem.
Switch To... Retry Cancel (greyed out)
...............................................

You cannot exit this error message window nor close it.
I had to use Task Manager to close the software.
And.... why is it saying SERVER BUSY ???
That means every time you use it, the software connects to an external server and what does it do to your PC and the information inside it?
I uninstalled this.
And then to be safe, did a System Restore to remove all the remnants in Registry.
I noticed that this seems to be Germany authored.
From my past experience with Germany authored software, I have a bad impression of them. This case has reinforced that impression.
Free software such as Faststone Image Resize is much better.

ricohflex, the server being described as busy is the program itself not responding to certain windows messages. It does not normally mean or invlove a network server.

Today in the modern email clients or email providers already giving this system to automatically batch resize photos in attachments.. mail.ru, outlook, yahoo, gmx already have these options.. so I prefer no software for using just only batch resize photos !! beside the software have 45mb size don't know why so big with $25 !!

Gopinath, Download the app, open it, input your email address and send it. They will send the key code. Input the code and register. It took me 3x today before I got it. Good luck, geo

It is a bit disappointing that the downscaling algorithm is not selectable (e.g. Sinc, Lanczos3, Bicubic (sharper) or Bilinear) and it should be possible to sharpen after resizing.

Install successfully.

However, not able to start the program due to windows capability. I use windows 7 32 bit.

No choice, uninstalled.

This is ideal for sending a batch of photos via email but will they convert back to the original size at the other end, if so wished?

Reply   |   Comment by Berger3  –  28 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-17)

Berger3, yes, just like you can spend money twice.

Of course not: resizing differs from lossless compression, if resizing is used to lose pixels. Those deleted pixels are gone forever, like the dollars you spent on an icecream.

Reply   |   Comment by gergn  –  28 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+15)

Berger3, no, this program is not about a reversible compression, it does scale down (resize) the resolution of the images.
