    On XP, when in Explorer if I right clicked on a .jpg file I had the option
    to resize very easily. I don't remember the program or where I got it or if
    it will work on Vista Home Premium.

    TIA

    Don Guillett formulated the question :
    You probably mean ImageResizer.exe, one of XP's powertoys.
    Unfortunately
    this doesn't work with Vista.

    Not quite the simplicity, but far more utility, and FREE.

  4. You can double click on any image, that opens it in Photo Galley. From
    there click on open, any any application listed there like the default
    Paint from which you can do some crude editing as far as size. You can
    also crop direcly from Photo Galley and other minor touch ups. If you
    have other more powerful graphic application like Photoshop probably
    faster to just open in that and browser files from within that program
    directly.

    As a work-around :-

    In Windows Mail, there is a Resizer, so, if you send an image to yourself, you can choose your size - to the parameters available in XP.

    Why you can have a Resizer in Windows Mail & not in Vista, don't ask me.

    You don't have to actually "send" them. Once you get to that point, you can
    simply "Save Attachments".

    OK, further info, Windows Mail has to be the Default Mailer.

    I was very frustrated by the lack of this feature in Vista as well...
    Especially with the inclusion of related tools in the Photo Gallery.
    However I came across the program located here
    http://www.vso-software.fr/products/image_resizer/ which is very similar to
    the original PowerToy. Give it a go, it's freeware.
