A free and Fast Image Resizer app
The Fast Image Resizer allows you to open it up on your desktop, and then drop images onto the app to have them resized according to your settings. Similar to Dropbox, you pre-set where the image will be deposited. You can resize JPEG, BMP and PNG files; if you are dropping images into the program that have the same name, the outputs will have numbers put next to them so they are not replaced as they generate.
It is easy-to-use and has an old-fashioned, almost retro, look to it that is akin to Free Image Resizer. However, instead of a batch conversion tool, it has a desktop drag-and-drop function for quicker and more convenient image resizing.
Does this photo resizer compress images?
The primary aim of this image resizing program is to scale down images to a certain size. This means that a level of compression occurs, and a degree of resolution is lost. But, you can set the program to maintain or decrease resolution using a percentage slider.
Is the image cropped?
The primary aim of the app is to maintain the same aspect ratio as the original, which means there is no cropping and no image warping to fit pre-defined image sizes. If you want image cropping, then you can enable the auto-cropping function.
The tool is very lightweight because it sticks to simple rules and does not bloat the process. Its speed and ease-of-use makes it great for quickly creating thumbnail images for your website.
Can I rotate the images?
There are two rotation settings to choose from, one is the usual 90-degree rotation, and the other setting uses EXIF data to determine the rotation of the image when it was taken by the camera.
A drop and resize tool
With Fast Image Resizer, you have a utility app on your desktop, and you drop images into it, and they are quickly resized to whatever settings you have entered into the program. The tool resizes images so quickly that you can swiftly drop one after the other into the tool without any form of delay, which is this tool’s alternatives to batch/bulk resizing functions.
