Light Image Resizer
Quickly rescale your pictures with Light Image Resizer

Resizing images for any purpose can be a chore. If you are putting together a web site and need to ensure that all of your images have the same dimensions, it can take time to load each picture into an image editor and apply the relevant settings. Some image editors offer a batch processing option and there are also many standalone tools that do this too. Light Image Resizer is a similar application that can be access via the context menu so it is always to hand whenever you need it.

You can opt to work with a single image at a time, or select several at once, or even choose to work with an entire folder. Having activated program from the context menu you can then specify the resizing options you would like to use and the images with be saved as new files on one fell swoop. But it doesn’t end there – there are plenty other options to explore in the program that give you greater control over how your images will appear.

You can also convert images to sepia or black and white, apply special effects and add borders. Watermarks can also be added to prevent pictures that you post online from being used elsewhere and you can decide whether or not Exif information should be retained. With the ability to send converted images to Facebook, save as PDFs and much more, there’s plenty here for you to do to your images. The program usually costs $23.79, but for a limited period it is available free of charge in return for liking ObviousIdea on Facebook.

While this is an incredibly useful tool, we should point out that the installer does include a number of optional extras. Once you reach the end of the main program installation, you will be invited ot install a number of browser add-on and apps. If you aree not interested in any of these, take a moment to ensure that you untick all of the boxes as well as selecting the ‘I don’t want one’ option and indicating that you do not want to change your search engine for homepage.

Verdict:

Easy enough to use, but nothing special, this is a tool that gets the job done, but there’s better available.

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.
