Tired of Picasa? Sick ofImage viewer? Can't afford Photoshop?
How bout' a free program, that does everything you need - and takes mere seconds to begin using once installed. It's called IrfanView and its the bee's knees!
IrfanView is an easy to use image viewer / editor which supports all major graphic formats and makes resizing images a breeze! IrfanView is 100% free!
(MAY NOT BE COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 7 - check IrfanView to verify BEFORE installing)
I personally have used IrfanView for the past four years, and its stable, solid, and glitch free. You can download it from www.download.com or www.tucows.com both great free software portals that only offer stable software at quick download speeds.
So how popular is it, compared with competing software (stats are for December 2008):
IrfanView can re-size photos, touch up color, crop photos, save in numerous formats or convert to numerous formats, adjust resolution, batch process (edit multiple photos at once), and even allows for advanced features such as color matching and .gif transparency (for images with single color backgrounds).
Resizing is simple:
Here's a screenshot of the entire edit menu:
Its great for MLS, becase once you use it to resize one photo - it will remember the dimensions you entered. So resizing additional photos is a breeze. Plus, if you need instructions a great FAQ is available on www.irfanview.com
