    I thought the mighty vista would comes with a simple image resize tool in
    the photo gallary, which already has the ability to crop file / change
    brightness or contrast....

    thanks

    When viewing the image in Photo Gallery, select Open/Paint from the Toolbar.
    This will open the current image in MS Paint and you can perform the resize
    from there.

    I think most versions of vista come with the Office Picture Manager? I know
    my beta 2 ultimate did, I have office on it now and I know that is part of
    office. Picture Manager will resize photos real easy!

    I like VSO image resizer. Although, it no longer puts an option
    in the right-click context menu. You can use "Open with">"Chose Default Program"
    to find imageresizer and then it will be included in the "Open With" list from
    then on. Just be sure to uncheck "Always use" or it will change your default
    program used to display your pics.

    Mainly for batch conversions, but still useful.

    That's good to know. Don't know why it's not in mine.

    It does show up when right-clicking folders, but doesn't show when
    right-clicking an individual image.

    I think it comes with Office instead, right?
