The optimal choice to backup your old and scratched disc into the new one!

iResizer helps to resize images without destructing or cutting the content. It can scale a photo without changing its main visual content: people, buildings, animals and other objects. Unlike other resizing programs, which affect all pixels while scaling a picture, Intelligent Resizer affects pixels in areas that do not have important visual content.

Intelligent Resizer also allows you to "fix" the aspect ratio of a photo. It folds the image so that it will still look natural and will retain the quality, integrity and spirit of the original. In order to preserve important objects you simply select them and run the resizing, the rest is done automatically. Moreover, Intelligent Resizer can change the spacing between main objects as well as remove objects from image like you'd fold a paper photo. Creating square images for Instagram without cropping is also possible with the app!

Please note: You can purchase a Personal license (with support and updates) with 50% discount!

Many years ago, I downloaded a free program called XnView which was mainly for viewing all types of images. It also can resize images perfectly to any size you choose. XnView is, IMO, one of the best free programs out there as it does so many things such as rotate, adjust, flip, swap colors, adjust many things such as color saturation, extract colors, resize, crop, add watermark, red eye reduction, edit palette, add text, map levels, and this is just the tip of the iceberg with this program. Hence, I cannot see any reason to download this program. I'm sure it will do what it says but why not have one program that does it all?

Robert,

I hope you don't judge books like you judge software titles. The first post for this software had a similar comment, and thankfully someone pointed out to that user that they should at least view the samples on the software developer's website.

Yes the word "resize" is in the title, and XnView has a "resize" feature, but this software is not attempting to do a straightforward resize the way XnView and many other tools that can resize images do. If you resize an image in XnView but change the ratio of the sides (e.g., 16x9 to a 4x3), it may look fine for things like an ocean or grass or desert, or anything that does not reveal that the image has been distorted, but if you have a subject in the image that is easily recognizable, such as humans, recognizable animals, vehicles, or even structures, the image will surely look distorted. If you use something like PhotoShop, you could spend a considerable amount of time duplicating the original image into multiple layers, erasing portions of each layer, moving layers to alter the overall ratio, then blending the edges to create your final image, then you could end up with a pretty decent image that would not look distorted. This program attempts to to do the same with much less effort.

The purpose of the iResizer software is to change the width to height ratio without affecting the main subject in the photo. It works for images where the surrounding area is so similar that sections can be removed (or added) without altering the overall appearance of the image, ... except for the ratio. The way that is accomplished is by highlighting parts of the image that you do not want distorted (main subject). Specifying new dimensions for the final image, the software attempts to remove (or add) sections, and blend the remaining parts together (or stretch/duplicate parts to expand the image when you wish to make one of the sides longer), all while leaving the main highlighted subject the same.

XnView cannot do that.

Know the product you are speaking out against.

In cases where you think that a different program can do the same thing, but you are not familiar with the product, it is always a good idea to learn about the program, and read through the comments before posting against a product. Otherwise, by implying that XnView can do the same only confuses users, as they rely on the comments to be accurate, and from knowledgeable people.

I rarely would ever need or utilize Teorex iResizer, but I do recognize its unique features, and understand why it does exist. iResizer is not the greatest thing to ever be developed, as it is in essence a one-trick-pony, but if you need that functionality, it can do it much easier then attempting to do the same in PhotoShop or similar software, provided the image is suitable for this purpose. There really are not a lot of alternatives that do the same thing, although I am sure some competitors will come about. The same technique is used in other Teorex products to remove parts of an image. The software does the blending to fill in the removed parts.

I have used XnView since the earliest days, and it is a great program for what it does. While it would be great to have one tool that does it all, it simply does not exist.

I am not convinced that this is an "inteligent resizer" as it requires the human operator to use their inteligence to mark the important bits. I consider it to be an Adaptive Resizer adapting to the settings of the user and using non-linear resizing algorithims.

I wish that every time you open iResizer it occupies the entire primary monitor and does not re-open in the same size and position (on the primary monitor, or on a secondary one if you have multiple monitors).

Program seems nice and loaded on Windows 7 with successful activation. Thank you. Maybe I am missing something, but there does not seem to be a way to keep the aspect ratio while enlarging or reducing the size..... I need to look more, but I do not see this. Thank you!

I can see by the comparison someone else posted that my activation was false in spite of running the activation twice. I don't see any useful information on how to get it to activate.

I much prefer seeing something on the app where you can paste in the code and see that it is accepted. Why do they have to make it so hard and deceptive.

iResizer demonstrates the original reason behind the tech that makes Inpaint etc. work... the problem was how to reuse the same images on something like a web page, so that it looked good on both a PC's monitor & a cell phone's screen. "Retargeting images" [Google on those 2 words for more info] is supposed to preserve the more important features in a photo, condensing everything else but those selected objects in a way that [hopefully] appears natural.

Note that TeoreX included Inpaint's feature of being able to remove objects from the scene in iResizer, though it's more limited in what you can do compared to Inpaint. Like Inpaint -- & similar apps, plug-ins, and built-in features in image editors -- Retargeting apps like iResizer don't work as well with more complex backgrounds, e.g. standard examples almost always include beach scenes.

Setup went fine and also Activate, after the DTOG-progam was closed.
I searched the internet for some photo's.
And sometimes it went fine:

And sometimes it went wrong; mostly because I did spent just one second time per photo:

First of all let me say that I have always got my money's worth from TeoreX. I have purchased a few of their programs and I was always pleased with their performance. However I am having some problems with this one. I have used several resizers in my time but I can't get this one nailed. I resize to a common scheme ie: 400X600 resize to 600X800 and the photo goes out of focus. Either I am using the program wrong or TeroeX has finally slipped. Hope I am wrong because I really like their Programs.

Reply   |   Comment by Lars  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Lars, Going from small to larger, you are using the same number of pixels and spreading them out more, which results in the "out of focus" effect. Try increasing the photo's resolution if you can, or use a software to sharpen/focus the image after you resize. I'm unable to make software recommendations, but do a Google search, there are lots of sharpening/focusing softwares out there.

Kyle,

TeoreX apps can be used portably, but the registration key unlocking them is stored in the registry. An app like the free Cameyo can usually turn this type of app into a fully portable version, but if your laptop is locked down so you can't add the key to the registry the 1st time [for Cameyo to record it], you still need access to an unlocked Windows device.

If the work laptop will allow you to boot from a USB drive, a external win10 Windows To Go drive [created using the wizard in win10's Control Panel with a mounted win10 Ent. ISO (Insider?)] could be one solution to this sort of problem while traveling. If it won't boot to a USB drive, a Windows tablet wouldn't add too much to what you had to carry, & you can sometimes find those fairly cheap on sale.

Kyle, try Cameyo, the packager is free and you can create 50 portable apps with it.

Interesting software - it works as promised, making it easy to change size and aspect ratio without distorting elements you choose to protect. The results can be a bit strange if you're sloppy when defining the protected element(s) but the software reverts your image quickly so it's easy to play with it until you get what you're after. This is especially useful if your source material has important details at the edges and can't be cropped, yet you don't want borders. Landscapes work very well.
A keeper; thanks GOTD and iResizer!

Very useful for re- sizing 2-4MB photo's to 300kb one's - makes emailing multiple photo's very easy.
Photo quality degradation is not noticeable, especially on smart phones.

from the homepage:

Intelligent Resizer (iResizer) allows you to "fix" the aspect ratio of a photo.

Want to change from 4:3 to 16:9?
No problem, iResizer folds the image so that it will still look natural
and will retain the quality, integrity and spirit of the original!
In order to preserve important objects you simply select them
and run the resizing, the rest is done automatically.

With iResizer you can easily create 1:1 photo (may be for Instagram)
without cropping in two steps:
1. mark areas on the photo you want to preserve
2. run Instagram resizing

I use the portable version of Xnview to resize my images, It works fine for me. So unless someone can tell me that this is much better than Xnview I will pass.

Reply   |   Comment by brenda  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-17)

brenda, with this program you can resize to any ratio you want and keep the correct ratio of the important parts. With editors like xnview you have to tick the keep aspect ratio box and therefore can only resize with the same ratio if yoy don't want the subject to look incorrect. It actually adds bits to the picture to achieve this. Nothing like a normal resizer. Check the homepage above and it will show you examples.

Reply   |   Comment by Rich p  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+26)

brenda, Thanks for that "insightful" review of Xnview as well as the review of iresizer. There are people here that sometimes wait to see what the reviews are before downloading. I fail to see why people post such nonsense without so much as an iota of information as to why they like product "X" over the current giveaway.

By the way, the first sentence is complete sarcasm. If you don't know what that word is it's in the dictionary.

Because some people might already have a similar program as the giveaway...and instead of possibly wasting time downloading and trying...the comments give you a general idea of how it is.

Reply   |   Comment by Mothman  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

brenda,
I use XnView too as a pure image resizer. There are other software that do likewise.
Teorex resizer is a different type of software.
It claims to be able to resize the aspect ratio and keep images that you specify as important, unchanged.
There is nothing "intelligent" about it.
Hmm... I do not need such software.
If others do, good for them.
Teorex quick and dirty, simple image manipulations sometimes work and sometimes they don't.
Consider it a cheap toy software to play around with, if you want to.
