While resizing images is a fairly straight-forward task in Windows, it requires multiple steps. You need to open the file that you want to resize with an image editing tool, select the resize tool, enter the new dimensions, and then save the copy.
Did you know that you can resize images on your Windows 10 PC without opening any of these programs? Yes, you can quickly resize image files right from the context menu (right-click menu).
Image Resizer for Windows
Image Resizer for Windows is a free program designed to help Windows 10 users to resize image files right from the context menu without opening any additional image editing tools.
You can either use one of the pre-defined sizes or use a custom size for your images.
It’s worth noting that the Image Resizer for Windows doesn’t resize original images by default settings. It creates a new copy of resized images and saves at the location of original images. That said, there is an option to change this default behavior. Select Resize the original pictures option to always resize original images instead of creating a new copy of pictures.
This is how Image Resizer works. You need to either select a single file or multiple files, right-click on it/them, and click Resize pictures option in the context menu to open Image Resizer dialog. Here, either select one of the pre-defined sizes or enter a custom size and then click Resize button to resize image(s).
There is only one major drawback. Although you can select multiple pictures for resizing, you cannot assign different sizes for all selected pictures in the batch. That is, you can set only one size for all images.
The latest version (v3.0) of Image Resizer is fully compatible with Windows 10, both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. Visit the following page to download the newest version of Image Resizer.
The developer plans to add a couple of interesting features to Image Resizer for Windows in coming versions. In upcoming versions, you will be able to edit default sizes, give custom filenames to resized images, select JPEG picture quality level and more.
The program is definitely worth a try, especially if you often resize image files.
