Resize Photos and Images with Customizable Output Settings.

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.

#37, mike, no, iResizer will try to remove from the red area first (depending upon result size, no guarantee), warping the image around it, both horizontally and vertically, no matter whether you selected resizing in one or both dimensions. That's why I find it interesting but not especially useful, in general there will be visible artifacts afterwards.

This could be a handy stand-alone tool for some, but as seen in their demo video on the product site, unless the background is practically solid color & texture (which it seldom is) when using this tool on an average image, even with a fairly common background like grass and trees it has a tendency to leave artifacts like "scars" which would need to be edited out by a tool like the healing tool in Photoshop Elements. Though if you have a recent version of Photoshop Elements then you have the re-composition tool which is what iResizer is trying to emulate, though doing a primitive job of it compared to the quality of Photoshop Elements resizer (recomposition) tool.
iResizer normally costs $40 which is half of what Photoshop Elements costs yet iResizer performs only one function (poorly) when PSE performs it well, plus the myriad of other high quality useful features.

a simple n straight-2-the-point app. even granpa will like iresizer flawles install on win7-32. one drawback is its sizing options. a pantograph is shown as part of the produc't icon, thou i guess this design has no relevancy as to its operation. still glad eor the opportunity!

Once again, **I am not an administrator**. When I administer I am an administrator.
But when I'm a user I'm a User.
It seems that iResizer will only run registered for administrators. I've installed as an admin, of course, closed the app and run activate.exe - then run the app as myself, a User. But it's not registered.
If I run iResizer as an admin then the app is registered.
I say that this is not good enough - requiring apps to be run as administrators. This kind of thinking is so last millennium.
I protest!
Have I missed something?

Hi
I downloaded and unzipped the program, but when I tried to install the setup.exe, i get the following error message:

The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

I tried the Activate.exe which did run, but obviously didn't have anything to activate. I then went to the website, downloaded iResizerSetup.exe, which is exactly the same size as the unzipped setup.exe file. When I tried to run iResizerSetup.exe, I got the same error message:

The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

I too am running Win 7, 64 bit. This is the first time I've ever run into this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?

im reading al the comments here and over half of them are complaints about it not being registered
now alot of you like to appear to be clever but if you had actually read the read me file you would NOT have any problem with the registration


run register when the program is CLOSED and not OPEN its simple

and for them who are comparing it to Photoshop do you realize that alot of people cannot afford Photoshop this is a cheap temporary solution for anyone who does not have advanced knowledge of computers

#2 - What does it take to convince you? Obviously you don't understand the purpose of the software. If you have a photo which needs to be resized and that resizing is not in keeping with the original aspect ratio, you may select subjects in the photo which will not be affected by the resizing, thus keeping their aspect ratio correct. Especially in photos where the main subject is a person, animal, car, etc. but the background, if the aspect ratio IS changed, wouldn't be noticeable (forest, ocean, skyline, etc.), this could be quite useful. You can accomplish this in other programs (I use Photoshop for my work) but that's an expensive piece of software. I'm going to install this at home for my kids to use (and probably me, as I DON'T have Photoshop at home). I have installed it here at work and it works as advertised...pretty cool, in fact.

You can undo and redo the changes with Ctrl+Z , Ctrl+Y or Edit-->Undo/Redo. The re-sized picture effectiveness is depending on the background too. When i tested more, It is working well with backgrounds like water, plain sky, etc., . Though i am not seeing a smooth re-size a group photo which is having 5 people in different sizes, i still think it is good app with some limitations. Thanks.

#10: "... Inpaint seems straight-forward and better for removing objects..."

It can be better for removing stuff... Inpaint looks at all of the surrounding area, & stretches that area to fill in the blank where whatever you removed was. If you paint something green, if you add/subtract to the image width, iResizer tries to look at the rest of the image & resize the less important parts. If you paint something red, then reduce the width, iResizer tries to do all the shrinking where you painted it red, looking just to the right & left of what you painted -- the only way it looks at what's above & below is if you reduce the height too. Both Inpaint & iResizer have their own advantages depending on the image you're working with & the intended results.

It would be nice to have some "standard" features such as reset to go back to the original picture and rotate.

#19: "I tried to use it on a large photo of a house with a pile of trash in front. removed trash but rest of photo distorted like a van Gogh although house was green selected."

That would be difficult with most seam carving apps/plugins, & for the most part probably impossible for iResizer to handle on its own. What iResizer does is shrink or stretch an image along the vertical or horizontal axis or both. Lets say you colored the pile of trash red, then narrowed the image by slightly more than the pixel width of that trash... the result would be more-or-less like taking a pair of scissors & cutting that slice out of the middle of the photo print, then taping the remaining right & left pieces back together. The trash would be gone, but so would that portion of the house & everything else that was on that now missing slice.

TO actually accomplish that trash removal [as I'm imagining the original image] you *might* be able to use Inpaint on separate parts of the picture, then put the results back together -- whether it was worth the effort or not depends on the texture, lighting, & detail of the house, front yard etc. Using more traditional clone tools might or might not work better.

* * *

#25: "An interesting idea, easily done in Photoshop... I see too many technical issues to bother with a single use program, when you really need a multi-functional program such as Photoshop in order to handle all the pieces of the edit, and be able to step through it backwards and forwards, make adjustments at any step, and save each and every edit without starting a new file"

FWIW I'd have to say it depends on what you're doing. TeoreX also makes Inpaint, which uses the same sort of code but focuses more I think on removing parts of an image. When you're getting rid of something using either Inpaint or iResizer the rest of the image obviously matters, a Lot. Sometimes you have to exclude part of the original image to get the desired results, & you can do that, exclude part of the image by putting everything else on it's own layer in P/Shop (& similar apps) -- to do that sort of thing with Inpaint or iResizer I have to export that incomplete layer, run it through Inpaint/iResizer, then bring it back into P/Shop, which is a process that can get pretty involved, often to the point where it's just as fast/easy to use the clone tools. But with iResizer at least I think that's more an extreme or unusual use for the tool, & by itself it can work fine.

Wikipedia & other sites give a much better, in depth look into how seam carving works, but in a nutshell it's a way of analyzing content in the entire image, then the rest of the software shrinks or stretches parts of that image based on that analysis. The actual shrinking/stretching is no different than what's used when you shrink/stretch an entire image, & has the same pros & cons, but what makes an iResizer-type app special is it performs that resizing *Selectively* to *parts of* rather than the entire picture. When you encode MP3 audio it works by analyzing the file, determining the most important parts of what you hear, & then discarding the other stuff. An app/plug-in that uses seam carving does the same sort of thing, determining the most important parts of an image, shrinking or stretching the rest.

In more traditional methods of image editing you want a precise mask, e.g. when you're going to copy/paste a selection somewhere, but with iResizer you're giving the software a strong hint on what to avoid resizing, &/or where to focus the resizing most strongly, so those fancy masking tools are of little use. The same could be said of layers & most of the other tools in P/Shop, i.e. they tend not to apply. In a way today's GOTD, iResizer is like the regular resizing option or feature in an image editor in that you use it once, normally on the entire image, usually when you export/save. Included in an image editor an iResizer equivalent is convenient, but as you would use iResizer before or after working with the image in that editor, including it is not much more than a convenience.

Very nice piece of software. It installed easily on Windows 7 and did exactly as advertised. I chose a picture of my sister, highlighted her in green and took out a bookcase beside her by highlighting it in red. Then I reduced the size by 1/4 and the final picture was perfect.

I did all that with just a couple of brush strokes and it was much easier than I expected.

Be sure to save the image at highest quality if it is an important picture. You do have to make an adjustment on the save quality bar to get optimum results.

Not too bad if you want to re size image on the right side. The user of this program should have more control as to what part of image they want to re size or even make the image a little sharper. Not a really bad program but not a keeper for me.

Very Disappointed = I'm having the same problems as #14 Carl & using the same machine (7/64). I've opened up the read-me & followed d following instructions: "install the software by running Setup.exe, then run the activation program Activate.exe which is included in the package to register your copy." Rec'd: "iResizer 1.1 activated - what next?" page. Went thru d arduous ordeal of applying d program 2 a photo, went 2 save it & got d message dat u have 2 buy it B4 u can save it. There is no registration code given 2 us gotd users that I could find after reading & re-reading d instructions. Read comments that suggest completely closing program & re-open 4 registration 2 take hold. Tried that re-read help; about still no indication of any registration applied. Tried #15; Went thru the arduous ordeal AGAIN, tried 2 save & got groundhog's day results.

What made d ordeal arduous:
1. no crop tool included
2. Too much testing, completely undo all work done, re-test, MAYBE Yes, maybe no - if no have to go thru all that again & repeat, repeat, repeat again & again! You have too REALLY WANT it 2 go thru that & especially if u have several photos u want to apply this program to - if you don't, $40 is way too much to pay 4 a program that u have to work so long on (certainly NOT a PRODUCTION product - the time expended would eat ur day away=no profits. Could be frustrating.
3. same as#4 John states "you can’t see the brush size until you actually start to paint; a change of cursor to indicate brush size, as most paint programs have, would help here."
4. same as #8 tomcat "the result may not be optimum" sometimes not even close & that's AFTER U EXPENDED THE TIME -oops not usable (it's not rare)
5. same as #10 ric "it is not precise. User cannot exercise fine control. Not talking about the brush size which you can adjust." & "Agree with others on need for auto scaling tool. This software is in urgent need for multi-step Undo and Redo controls."

I am a Photoshop user & this program takes A LOT LONGER to get the results u want than just using Photoshop.
Since the registration doesn't come w/this & can't save, there is no reason to leave this program on my computer taking up real estate - the real estate is bad IF it did the job as ez as u would like a potential customer 2 believe.

Seam Carving [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seam_carving ] has been around a while now, as this method of analyzing/altering images is finding its way into more & more apps. It's not something most people will use every day or on every image, but the capability is something you want in your toolkit... For web design it can help when/if you're creating a mobile version of your site(s), making images better fit the smaller screens of cell phones. For image editing seam carving apps/plug-ins can sometimes help a lot getting rid of something in a photo you wish wasn't there. And seam carving can in general help recomposing images so the image content you have better fits the space you want/need to fill. On the downside seam carving works best with more uniform backgrounds -- more complex textures &/or backgrounds may not stretch or shrink well enough to look natural, plus they'll sometimes fool seam carving algorithms.

iResizer focuses on stretching/shrinking images -- when you stretch an image the stretching is performed on anything painted red, avoided on anything painted green, & otherwise spread across the image -- shrinking works the same way, with anything painted red getting shrunk the most, disappearing if you shrunk the image enough. The way it works, both green & red masks are more like guidelines, telling iResizer's algorithm(s) what to try to avoid &/or what to focus on most heavily, so the rather imprecise paint-on masks are all that's required. One way to get a better idea of just how iResizer works is to visit gocomics.com , save one of the comic strips [usually right-click the strip/image], open it in iResizer, & just start playing... the Undo/Redo buttons make comparisons very easy. [FWIW I think comic strips are ideal in this case because there's little or nothing to confuse the seam carving code, so the results you see are just what iResizer does.] And once you have a fair idea of how today's GOTD works, you can either put it to work, or just have fun, e.g. you can make a car [or just parts of it] Much longer/taller or shorter.

iResizer is a small one file app... The "iResizer" program folder holds 3 files, ~8 MB, while the registry gets one key for the app & one for uninstall. While the Open Image dialog just lists .jpg, .bmp, .png, & .gif, selectng "All files (*.*)" for image type it had no trouble importing .tif images -- unfortunately without a complete list or help file you'll just have to try & see if your preferred image format's supported. Saves can be done in any one of those 4 listed. Multiple levels of Undo are stored, but the masks you painted on are not preserved, so if you click undo you have to recreate them. The resize dialog is a bit sparse, but you can change height & width independently -- you might want to just stretch or shrink to get the proportions you're after, then use your regular image editor to reduce/enlarge & optionally crop the entire image.

You can do the same things with or without seam carving apps/plug-ins, but it takes longer & is [sometimes Much] more work without them, so they're handy to have around. At the same time you might hardly ever use one of these tools because they are so specialized, & what you don't use you'll sooner forget. From that perspective, even if you have the same capabilities in your image editor of choice, if you can spare 8 MB & work with images at all, iResizer is probably worth having IMHO because it's so simple you can dive right in -- you might even be done in less time than it would take to read that image editor's help file, refreshing your memory on how to use its built-in seam carving features.

An interesting idea, easily done in Photoshop, and I imagine in the free Paint.net as well. Issues may be; artifacts left over from the selection tool - you may put green on parts you don't want, and then erasing them will require something like Photoshop's clone tool to make jagged edges appear smooth and related to the adjacent pixels; pixel mismatch - what you are actually doing is either holding the 'green' pixels in place and cropping the rest, or resizing the rest. Re-sized pixels do not look the same as unre-sized pixels, so the result may be fuzzy here and there. Repositioned pixels may cause artifacts and lighting inconsistencies. From the comments here, the author has some sophistication to add to it, and those additions might make it worth while. Any pixel that is re-sized looses information that cannot be retrieved, so I see too many technical issues to bother with a single use program, when you really need a multi-functional program such as Photoshop in order to handle all the pieces of the edit, and be able to step through it backwards and forwards, make adjustments at any step, and save each and every edit without starting a new file; in other words, to use this technique well, I think you need tools not available in the program itself, so why bother?

I have given iResizer a try and I can´t use it to anything in my work.
The cost of iResizer is too high. $40 is among the more professionel tools that you can buy. iResizer has only one feature, so it don´t stand a chance among any other tools that can crop and resize.

If iResizer should have a chance among many other programs that I have, then should iResizer have:

- a ruler vertical and horizontal with a measuring line which can show the number of pixel that is needed for the object that I want to keep.
- a erase function for green and red marker.

I think that the Zoner Photo Studio 13 Home Edition 64-bit do a much better and faster work.
(offered here some months ago and ZPS13 only cost $45 for a lot of functions that todays offer don´t have !)
Even when you have to crop first and then resize after to get the same basic result as iResizer.

@Carl (#14) Sounds like you probably didn't give "activate.exe" enough rights on Win7 to do its job.

The "setup.exe" of today's giveaway is identical to the trial version available from the publisher's website. It is "Activate.exe" that does the registration, but that program requires admin access to the registry to do so. ("Activate" doesn't check to verify it actually *has* those rights before saying "successfully activated".)

No serial key was provided by the folks at GAOTD because "Activate.exe" does that part as well.

I echo the sentiments above. What is "free" if you have to buy the program to print or save the results?
I downloaded and installed this program easily. I had to play with it to figure out how much smaller to make the end result, but, it turned out pretty good! The only thing is, now I have an image I can't use! Bah!

Used with mixed results. I tried to use it on a large photo of a house with a pile of trash in front. removed trash but rest of photo distorted like a van Gogh although house was green selected. another photo selected a large mesa and re-sized and it looked great. really for use selecting a few items in a photo to get to a new aspect ratio.

Not bad for free. Installs and works well on Windows 7 32-bit. Tried on photo of two people, and was able to bring them closer together with minimal problem.

One suggestion. When a person makes a mistake with the "markers" and needs to redo a portion, there is no way to "undo" just the last brush stroke. Undo is basically "start over" and I would find that unacceptable in a paid program. Freeware, maybe, but I would never buy it with that flaw.

Nice program, a little on the small and limited size for $40 but I won't complain since it's free today (also got it previously on another GAOTD offering).

Note to potential users -- make sure the program is closed, not just minimized, before activating the serial number. It won't work if the program is open.

Nicely improved from Version 1.0 offered 03/10/11. Removes unwanted portions of a photo a lot better than before as long as you set the new photo size to accommodate the area you want removed.
If you don't like the result, you can undo and try again until you get a satisfactory picture to save. I like it and it is fun to play with.
Definitely a thumbs up!

Quite fun.
However it is not precise. User cannot exercise fine control. Not talking about the brush size which you can adjust.
Am talking about the resultant image that you will get.
Agree with others on need for auto scaling tool.
This software is in urgent need for multi-step Undo and Redo controls.
Then the user can experiment until he gets the net effect he wants.
It will refuse to function if you don't change the size, since the name of the software is resizer.
Inpaint seems straight-forward and better for removing objects.
Thanks anyway, GOTD and TeoRex.

You use this program for different purposes than Inpaint, so you cannot really compare the two.

Though the tool is simple, fast and convenient to use, the result may not be optimum. It seems to me you can get much more control on the final result by using the cropping and resizing features of any simple image editor plus, if required to remove objects, the Inpaint tool offered by GAoD in the past.

Can TeoreX inform us what advantages the present tool offers over the above described simple alternative?

My experiences with software of this vendor have been excellent in the past. Whether you have use for this particular program is up to the individual need, but I like it.

I like TeoreX products, clean install. It's true that most of these auto-modifiers are best suited for web photos where the imperfections aren't as noticeable. It's interesting to see the decisions that the iResizer algorithms make. It's hard to find images that aren't going to result in obvious artifacts, but it's still a nice tool to have. I don't know what the changes are from the 1.0 version. I went ahead and activated without checking whether the 1.0 GOTD activation would still work. Note that the aspect ratio you select is going to matter, it would be much better if the Undo kept your selections so that you could try different aspect ratios, and crop rather than resize where appropriate.

Regarding the companion product, Inpaint, which has been given away several times, the free Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 single-image, not batch, editor (not available on obsolete XP) is an interesting alternative. It identifies probable objects for removal automatically, restricts you to selecting only those objects, and determines their boundaries automatically (you have limited control). It generally does a very good job of removal.
