Shrink Pic 1.8.0

This enables you to send dozens of pictures as email attachments - quickly and with no effort at all
Shrink Pic is an advanced Windows software solution that can compress sent photos automatically.

Once you launch the program, it monitors computer activity, email clients and instant messengers in particular, and detects whenever the user attempts to send a photo.

Based on pre-defined parameters, the program automatically compresses the picture and thus not only that reduces the overall transfer time, but it also uses less bandwidth.

The key role in this whole process is played by the configuration screen that allows you to play with all available settings.

For example, you can tweak compression level and choose from a total of four different options, high, medium, low and custom. If you go for the last one, you need to input the new resolution and the JPEG quality you wish to get.

The same window is being used to show a preview of the resizing process, but also to show photo compression statistics, such as processes items, total original file size and total compressed file size. Shrink Pic can handle JPG, BMP, PNG, TIF and GIF formats, with a dedicated option to convert all photos to JPG.

The good thing is that Shrink Pic doesn't hamper system performance at all and quietly runs in the background to take care of every photo you are about to send. Support for more image formats could help however.

All things considered, Shrink Pic is clearly a very helpful product and with a few improvements here and there, it could easily become one of the top apps in this particular software category.

What's New in version 1.7.0
  • A nasty bug, caused by Explorer’s privacy mode (which is a pretty good thing by itself) caused Shrink Pic not to kick in.
  • Another bug, which some of you might have noticed (and many reported) was crashing Outlook. Yes, Shrink Pic sadly crashed Outlook when running on Vista.
