I just made a nice find in FastStone Photo Resizer Version 2.4. None of my image editing applications seemed to do a batch resize fast and easy so I went looking and found this.
It’s a free download and is so easy. You just set the destination folder, rename, and the percent of original. This is Continue reading “Great Free Photo Resizer”
