For PC users there is irfanview, it's free, has lots of photo editing capabilities (including resize) and it's 100% free

Here is the web site:
IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide (http://www.irfanview.com/)


PS It's also got a really good thumbnail viewer/slide show viewer

Hi Mark,

Thanks for sharing this software with the forum.

One thing I like to do when I share a software program with the forum is to include a tutorial on how to use it that usually includes screenshots. Our forum attracts a wide spectrum of people, some that are very computer savvy and some that need a tutorial, especially with screenshots to show them how to use the software to successfully do the thing the software is supposed to enable them to do.

Here's an example of one I just wrote....

How to crop out the fluff and resize your pictures! - Using FREE online software! (http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/tips-techniques-how-articles-interacting-discussion-forums/23918-how-crop-out-fluff-resize-your-pictures-using-free-online-software.html)

I know it takes a little time to take the screenshots and create a "dedicated thread" helping others, but that's what brings so much more value to the link to the software.

Maybe the Infranview site has a tutorial? If so feel free to include the link or feel free to create you're own tutorial to go with the link?

It's REAL easy to take pictures with a digital camera, the problem most people have is resizing them to a usable, viewable size, plus unloading them to a gallery and then inserting them into a message.

That's where a helpful tutorial comes in real handy to go along with a link to great software.

Thanks for sharing the link with our forum.

The irfanview folks also run a support forum should you have any problems/questions about the software.
