works perfect for my particular needs and works from command line. not too expensive to buy if you use the program regular and want to remove the nag screen..The developer is responsive and been very helpful in fixng any issues. A previous poster mentioned the interface being old style? its been updated recently this year.

You do not need this nagware.
Here is what you need, a free and easy to use utility, Image Resizer for Windows v2.1, get it from here and enjoy:

The clone of Power Toy also works fine in windows XP .

Nagware, no thanks. The Microsoft image resizer powertoy works very well on XP systems, and someone has written a clone of it for Vista and 7.

(I did not review this software.)

I'm not clear whether this is "Freeware" or Pay?
Seemingly, Nagware at the least.
Perhaps it is Free if you want to put up with the nags? Or is Free in that manner for Personal use, but requires pay for Commercial? Not sure.

What a joke. You are nagged with a surprise web page that opens up when installation completes (advertising VSO's stupid toolbar), you are nagged each and every time you start this crapplication (with a dialog nag), and you're even nagged when you uninstall the bloody thing (with an "Uninstall Survey")! And if you submit the survey (for example, to vent your frustration over having your time wasted on all this nonsense), you are delivered to yet another nag--this time for their "Software Partners"!

As for the crapplication itself, the interface is a joke. I was expecting something similar to what I'm used to with the program I normally use (RIOT, http://luci.criosweb.ro/riot ), yet what I was presented was a ridiculous interface.

Consider this review a digital punch in the face to VSO.

Pros: option to run from the command line (good for power users).
not too expensive. un-licensed there is a nag screen.
program is still actively devloped.

Cons: none

Bottom Line: works perfect for my particular needs and works from command line. not too expensive to buy if you use the program regular and want to remove the nag screen..The developer is responsive and been very helpful in fixng any issues. A previous poster mentioned the interface being old style? its been updated recently this year.

Even though this is supposedly free for private use, it will nag you each and every time you try to resize a picture. What a joke.

I don't think this version is free. Crashed when I dragged an image to the shortcut.

Why...because XP Power toys is not for Vista or Windows 7 silly.

Program does what it says it does but..........
Why even bother with it or nag screens when Microsoft Power Toys XP has a right click and resize tool. http://www.microsoft.com...ertoys/Xppowertoys.mspx
Never mind that there is a Alternative for Vista/Win7 since April/09 http://imageresizer.code...es.aspx?ReleaseId=26281
There is no need for this program and I hope it goes open source as there are to many alternatives that can do the job better, faster and quicker
If you can find it Ulead Smartsaver Pro 3.0 (date 2000) will reduce # of colors to make pics web smart and it still works in Win7, if have a version installed just copy the folder to xp/vista/win7 and make a shortcut. Works just fine
G' Luck VSO!
