Default Image Sizer - could do with some input

Hi everyone, I actually came here to ask about the Kodak LS633 but I'm not sure if it's for me yet (Upgrading from a dx3700, don't laugh!)

Anyhow I run a couple of forums and people are always putting pictures up and also my friends and family are never sending pics because they don't know how to resize images etc. So I ended up writing a pretty simple application to do this!

About 4 months on now, I've upgraded and modified it (and added a few silly fun things) and am about to launch it as shareware (keeping the cost down to $16.50). I would love some feedback from you guys on what you think? I'm happy to take any ideas/criticism etc. but please remember this is a WYSIWYG system that is intended for basic users, so I don't think it is of much use to any of you.

You can see it / download it from http://www.dps.uk.com/dpstemp/shareware_imagesizer.htm however the website is still in progress and the ordering system doesn't work (so don't please don't order!!)

Thanks for the time... Now off to ask advice on my next digital camera!

I don’t really know of anything better than Irfanview for resizing and that is freeware. www.irfanview.com

Open the image in the program and go Image>Resize/Resample. Pick one of the standard sizes and save it as a JPG. Make sure you have “Preserve aspect ratio” selected and “Resample” checked with the Lanczos filter – you have to do that only once and it will remember.

If you want it smaller just type a number in either the width or height. As long as Preserve aspect ratio is checked it will select the other dimension.

I use Ulead Impact 7 for resizing. Does a very nice job without loss of quality. See sameples at this site:

Origninal pics were 4mp size and resize to 640X480. I bought the program on Ebay for $20.

I've not used Ulead, but I'm not as keen on Irfranview myself. In any case the program I'm developing is desinged to help real new computer users get started, and to try and minimize the number of dialog boxes etc.
