Picture Resizer 5.0.0.1
Batch resize a whole folder-full of images with a quick drag and drop

Picture Resizer is an interesting portable tool which makes it surprisingly easy to resize multiple images.

And this is because, at its simplest, there are no dialog boxes to explore - everything the program requires is contained in its own name.

The default file name, for instance, is PhotoResize400.exe. The "400" tells the program it should resize your target images to be 400 pixels on the longest axis. And so if you drag and drop a bunch of images onto the file, that's exactly what it will do, resizing those images and saving the reduced versions alongside the original (so "picture.jpg" would become "picture-400.jpg").

You need to resize your images to 640 pixels, say? Right-click PhotoResize400.exe, select Rename, change it to PhotoResize640.exe - job done. Now drag and drop your photos onto the file and they'll be resized accordingly.

Picture Resizer can do much more than this, but that's where life becomes more complicated.

If the file is called PhotoResize_400.exe, say, then it'll resize the minimum side of your image.

A file called PhotoResizeP50.exe will resize its target images to 50% of the original.

PhotoResizeG1024x768.exe will use content-aware resizing to change the aspect ratio while preserving the content.

While PhotoResizeA400x300.exe will crop the borders of the image, resizing what's left to 400x300.

(See the author's website for even more options.)

Plainly setting up these individually will take some thought, so if you never need to run the same resizing task twice then the program probably won't be for you.

If you always need to resize large numbers of images to the same target dimensions, though, Picture Resizer should be able to save you a lot of time and effort. Give it a try, see what it can do for you.

Verdict:

Picture Resizer is a handy tool which carries out simple resizes with great ease. And it has some more sophisticated features available, too, although these require considerably more thought to configure.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
