Ultra Resizer is fast, and very easy to use: you just have to choose the images you want to resize, select an output folder, choose the desired output size, and when you press the "Resize!" button, all your images will be resized.

The software lets you select one of many resolutions or define a new one manually. You may process single or multiple images at the same time. The simple design of the interface allows any user, advanced or novice, to resize images fast and without complications.

Late Comment: Please verify Easy Thumbnails procedure. It was great at XP, where we could right click the selected photos and select Create Thumbnails from the menu. It didn't open the main program window, just did the job saving the files _th_Name.jpg in the same folder of the original images. The resized image settings could easily be set in the open program. Unfortunatelly, this freeware doesn't work that way in Windows 7, and that could be your market advantage! I've asked them to review their software, I could pay for those features, but they didn't listen. Would you?!

#7, you rotate losslessly, not resize, and this program doesn't appear to have any capacity to rotate.

Hi again, I would like to add something to my earlier Comment #37. My tests were done on good quality photos and good quality graphics - hence (I presume) the Results were to my satisfaction, and I stick by it.

I did some more tests enlarging (again good quality) 800x600 jpgs to 1600x1200 and was happy with those results too.

However! Enlarging average quality photos or paintings has my mixed feelings.., so I wouldn't say Ultra Resizer is in the same league as mentioned here more expensive enlarging Programs like for instance BenVista PhotoZoom Pro (accidentally one of my older "regular" Tools:), and other Programs I have, or Users are trying to compare Ultra Resizer to, or test against (quite rightly so, and always, always appreciated!), but - because of it's uncomplicated nature, size and speed, and naturally what I'm happy with - I give Ultra Resizer enough credit to keep it.

It really is one of those individual choices - either it works for you, or not. I could perhaps argue here that name "Ultra" might suggest something "ultimate".., but in this case I'm not going to bother, so - easy, lol.

lossless ?!?!? really?
You cannot say "lossless" and "jpeg" in the same sentence, and you certainly can't say them when you are talking about resizing.
Look at the math before you post comments like this one, that will just confuse the [other] noobies...

I'm not going to comment on today's giveaway except to say that if you're serious about enlarging photos, then you should use specialized software. ReShade Image Enlarger was recently on BDJ, and an earlier version was on GOTD. There will be the usual whining about how you can't recreate what's not there. To some extent, that's certainly true, just as you can't perfectly deinterlace when there's motion, as you have no way to know what the original pixels were. Specialized enlarging software basically determines the shapes of objects before they're enlarged, so that curves and lines can be enlarged reasonably accurately. Additionally, they usually have algorithms for reducing noise, such as JPEG artifacts. I took the images from the Ecmos soft website, and compared their enlargement to that using BenVista PhotoZoom Pro 4 (and no, they don't use fractals, those introduce artifacts). The difference was obvious. I test links before posting, and my photo-hosting service hasn't been responding all night/day, I don't know what's going on and I don't have time to hunt up a suitable alternative host. You can download trials of image-enlargement software, but when not on discount, they're very expensive.

Installation like it should be. I compared this progs resizing with Irfanview results. Irfan pictures were more crisp and Irfanview has more possibilities in modifying resizing pictures. But big point for this prog, using is easy and intuitive.

Downloaded and installed as advertised - once activated - closed adn then reopened the program to remove the logo across the pictures... worked great on my pics - I used it on recent vacation pics that I always shoot at the highest resolution so I can crop - and this program efficiently reduced and placed them in a new folder without a hitch.

Installed quickly without trouble on my Win7-64bit PC.
Worked quickly. Small footprint and works well.
Does many sizes that are easy to select.
It will do batches.
You can manually adjust pixel size, but NOT in inches/centimeters, or percentage.

Does not do Tiff files, so it is useless to me.
It wants to overwrite files if you try to duplicate in different sizes.
You have to leave the program and rename them manually.

My favorite and FREE Resizer program remains FastStone Photo Resizer.
http://www.faststone.org/
Another good one is Image Resizer:

Yes it does up size, as well as down size, and does it quickly and very well too ! Yayy ! Not an easy thing to find, especially bundled in with any other graphics editing tools. It installed and runs perfectly on my Windows 7 home premium, on an external hard drive. I tested the program before I had closed it, and re-opened after installation, so got a horrible white watermark right across the middle of the images ! YIKES ! I closed it and opened again, and it worked beautifully,even on some classic paintings. The resizing options in all of the usual graphics programs do not enlarge an image without destroying it. With this program, upsizing is fast and easy, and the result is a clean clear image, just like the original, to my eyes. Well done ! Not something I would use every day, but very nice to have in the graphics toolbox. Easy, fast....yes, not sure if I would pay twenty dollars for this as a stand alone, but I do not have a website to run, so I have no specific need for it. I do however like large images, and I think this will help in that area very often. Thank you for the program for free though, it is much appreciated, as always.

Hi, I always rate such Programs by quality of Pictures at the other end of process they perform. Size naturally matters, but what good is smaller/bigger size when picture becomes distorted and of poor quality?? I have tested several photos/pictures - not as bulk mind, but individually.

IMHO - Ultra Resizer delivers very satisfactory results when ENLARGING!:), as well as shrinking. I urge you to do few tests in similar fashion (described below) to see the results for yourselves.

My tested photo, dimensions: 640x480, size: 275 KB - was enlarged to: 1600x1200, (new) size: 205 KB, and ended up pretty clear, no signs of pixelation "dirt", perhaps needing a touch of sharpening, but otherwise cool result!

All images I used for testing were jpg-s, set to be either enlarged, or shrunk to the size 1600x1200.
When performing these tests for the first time I created an outcome Folder in My Pictures (default destination goes to My Pictures, but just to be sure nothing over-copies itself it's best to create own Folder)

To see the results side by side I put original photo in New Folder on Desktop, renamed enlarged/shrunk image in outcome Folder in My Pictures, and dragged it to Desktop New Folder. This way I could see best what happened to my pic. Afterwords - pictures were put back where they came from.

I have a feeling I will be keeping this Program!:) Not so much for BULK actions (pity you cannot drag number of pics, but add only), but to resize individual photos.

Ultra Resizer is light in size, easy to install, does work pretty well and instantly (on individual images anyway)

Thumbs up from me, Thanks GAOTD and Ecmos Soft for this nifty little Tool!

A Very Curious GOTD Offer Today.

My first thought was the question posed by Comment #1: Does Ultra Resizer upsize as well as downsize? The ability to upsize would make UR a very useful tool for a relatively low price (most 'upsizer' software cost far more than $19.95).

Alas, UR does not upsize. And worse yet, UR imposes dimensional limitations on downsizing.

When one considers the aforementioned factors, it begs the question 'Why does today's developer think he can SELL this software?'

There are many superior Photo Resizer software available for free, offering more features than Ultra Resizer. I, myself, use the excellent RIOT resizer and the FastStone resizer: Both are free and both are far more amazing than today's GOTD gift.

Thank You GOTD & the UR developer for today's offering...but no thanks, your resizer is less capable than the free ones cited above. So, I am uninstalling yours...sorry!

Installed perfectly on an external hard drive, on Windows 7 Home Premium. Yes, this program does UP size as well as down. This is a fantastic boon, as picture quality usually suffers terribly with the slightest increase in size. I am a bit of an image freak, and work with pictures all day, every day. I have to say that this program works perfectly, and gave me perfect UP sizes in a flash, of some beautiful classic paintings I had recently downloaded. No problem with the down sizing either. This would be perfect for someone with a website, that needs to have exact sizes, and quickly. For the price point... well, perhaps if it came with other functions, but I honestly would not spend twenty dollars for this one function, even though it does a perfect job of it. Very pleased to have it for free though. Thank you very much ! ;-)

The batch resizer panel of Irfanview has far more facilities than this one trick pony... I suggest the developer take a look at the Irfanview program and consider if in good conscience it's even ethical to try and sell a stand alone very basic batch image resizer with less features than the batch resize feature of a mature freeware multi-function product like Irfanview. Irfanview sets the bar, the developer needs to develop a unique selling point or reconsider IMHO

No mention of preserve aspect ratio of content or stretch to new canvas aspect ratio, colour of padding bars if preserving aspect ratio or transparency of them...

@ #1....Instead of wishing you were clever, try reading Ultra Resizer's webpage first. "With Ultra Resizer you can enlarge or shrink all your images at once." And as the name says, ReSizer...not Shrinker. I have to agree with #2 (ASBY) though. The free image viewers that most people use these days already do the resizing, plus a whole lot more, and should already be on any thinking person's computer.

Judging from the website images it does have the power to upsize them but does not add detail as the better (fractal) programs have. What that means is a small image's detail will be enlarged and produce a "fuzzy", or blurred, larger image.

If I understand this correctly, it does not by default create a renamed file, but overwrites the original? This means you have to, OUTSIDE OF THE PROGRAM, create duplicates for processing - of what possible benefit is a program that cannot prepare files for its own processes? That's my feedback.

I'm sure it does what it's supposed to, but $20 ? No thanks. I wrote an image resizer in vb.net in just a few hours, with printing capability.

That way I could shrink jpg's down and print them as a pdf to carry around on my poor quality chinese android tablet.

There are many image resizers that are free. I particularly like image resizer 2.1 that can integrate with window explorer shell context menu. 
http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/documentation
Support bmp, dib, gif, ico, jpe, jpeg, jpg, png, tif, tiff, wdp. However, Image Resizer will also be able to use any Windows Imaging Codecs (WIC) that have been installed. File size is also small as compare to today's offer. To batch resize using Image Resizer, just multi-select your image files in window explorer, right click on context menu, select 'Resize pictures'. Couldn't be easier and it's free. 
Thanks for today offer but not worth installing.

Installed quick and easy with automatic code activation. GREAT
Simple to use with handy list of sizes to choose from. GOOD
Resizing upwards does not change the resolution (ppi). BAD
Interface is boring and will not go full-screen. NOT SO GOOD
Improvements
Would need to show original image sizes to compare and decide if they need resizing (this would be important in a folder full of different image sizes).
Allow drag and drop.
Allow different image formats to be resized in one batch.
Overall handy to have but too pricey for its limitations.

I doubt very much if it could be of any use to me - my pix are often 1280x960 or 768x1024 when I've finished "titivating" them.

Bet this program can't differentiate between "Normal Views" & "Turned on their side" type, and then how would it handle pre-cropped pix?

Thanks, but no thanks - Now back to editing my 400+ pix of Shanghai that are awaiting my attention from last weekend, and the thousands I took in the Balkans & Moscow from last month!

I tried it out, just in case there was something "special" about this resizer, because I really enjoy working with my photos. It works just fine but I don't see the point of having it, even at only 2.4 MB. I generally crop most of my pictures before I resize them, and there are probably already many comments awaiting moderation that will point out that there are numerous freeware applications that do both (and more), just as well or better. Frankly, I'm always amazed to find companies that still charge for things that have been available for free for so long. It's actually a little insulting.

I always appreciate the free sample, but there is absolutely nothing about this software that makes it worth the time to download, much less paying $20 for.

This software is version 1.5, so I wonder how v1.00 looked like. Those people who have Visual Basic v4+ is able to make programs like this one !

All photo editor programs have a resizer function, so there isn´t any need for stand-alone software.

Lets say that a standard photo editor have at least 20 different functions then should you open 5+ stand-alone programs every time you are going to edit a photo !

That is very time consuming and need more RAM to work at the same time. $20 isn´t a fair price when you can get so many freeware/open source programs with many more functions !

The key word for any resizer or rotator is "lossless" i.e. using lossless techology based on JPEG coding knowledge.
The description "very good output quality" is non-professional and smells not like "lossless". If I marketed a resizer the way as today's product is presented I would not sell it even for 1$
witn a lot of open source and freeware lossless converters out there (and hundreds free non-lossless converters).
With foggy description from developers I guess this resizer either not lossless (i.e. it is rather useless) or it is just front end to one of free lossless engines (in this case it should have a very special additional features to prove 20$ value).

Also, I went to their site and they have version 1.5 there so I downloaded and installed it and it is still registered to Giveawayoftheday.

Also on this site it says: Ultra Resizer is a batch image resizing tool. You can resize as many JPEG, BMP and PNG files as you want at once, and with a very good output quality

On their site the 1.5 version now supports GIF images.

Installed and registered easily. Seems to perform as claimed. Have upsized and downsized a few images successfully. I have not assessed the quality of the upsized images but for most normal purposes going from <1.2 MP to 11.1 MP produced a result no worse than you would get with Irfanview and with a bit less fiddling.

However, for quality enlarging I don't think you can beat SmillaEnlarger from http://sourceforge.net/projects/imageenlarger/. It's free but it is not capable of batch resizing like this giveaway.

I'll keep this for a while and see how it works out. I suspect it might be of value for upsizing low-res photos taken on some cell phones which are often of appalling quality due to the low resolution.

Installed very fast. It does what it says. The re size feature has preset settings and it does not work for me because most of the pictures I have are less than 2MB. If you must have a stand alone re sizer try Microsoft's Power Toys Re-Sizer.Or like most use Irfanview, XnView, or Fsviwer. $20 is a little too much for just a re sizer.
