Sorry, been on the road till 1am yesterday..
Windows Explorer as Jim said is part and parcel of XP and has been part of Windows since 2.85 wayyy back when.
I first came across the Window Powertoys suite back in 95.. when the MS Developers Kit became accessible by accident.. and once the mouse was loose, it was hard to hide. Powertoys actually gave Windows Explorer the functionality that it was supposed to have, but has never even to this day, been incorporated into the right button pop up menu that is standard for Explorer.
I still install the sendto.dll extension in ALL of my microsoft O/S's .. from 95 right up to XP Pro and I use em all from 95, 98, Win2K, XP Home and Pro.. and even the pos ME is hanging around.
Windows XP Powertoys
, is probably one of the best add on tools Microsoft has released for the general public in a very long time.
The easiest and simplest photo resizer is the powertoys resizer. The links to it are on the main page, which unfortuantely seems to be down this morning. Hopefully it is the planned rebuild.. Irfanview
is also linked on the main page.
With photo resizer, all you have to do is right click and choose resize photos, choose smallest and you can batch resize a whole directoyr. Photo resizer does not change the file name except to just add the word (small) in the name.
Irfanview is a much more powerful program. I use it a lot when I want to batch resize to as specific
image size espcially for PowerPoint and other Presentation type projects. Makes it far easier... but it does take a bit of practice to learn.
