Softpedia Editor's Review for Image Resizer Powertoy Clone
A clone of the Image Resizer Powertoy for Windows XP
Written by Elena Opris on March 28th, 2013
When you work with images (in web development, for example), you certainly need a reliable software for changing the dimensions of the pictures.
Using complex graphic editing programs is not necessary for this easy job. You can use a time-saving software like Image Resizer Powertoy Clone instead.
This application doesn't have an interface and appearance that you might expect. Instead, it integrates perfectly in the context menu and you can select it when an image is highlighted in Windows Explorer.
So, the GUI of Image Resizer Powertoy Clone consists of a standard window in which you can select the size of an image - small, medium, large, mobile device or custom.
Furthermore, if you press the "Advanced" button, you can enable Image Resizer Powertoy Clone to make photographs smaller, and to resize the original pictures without creating copies. If you don't enable the latter option, the image copy will be displayed in the same directory as the original file.
The program barely uses CPU and system memory. It doesn't include a help file but that's because Image Resizer Powertoy Clone is extremely easy to use, even by novices.
We would have liked the possibility of setting a different output destination for the image copies and to batch-resize pictures. Even so, Image Resizer Powertoy Clone is a very simple and effective tool for re-dimensioning digital pictures. We haven't come across any kind of problems during our tests and strongly recommend this tool to all users.
