Current Version 184.108.40.20604
Web Resizer was made to convert and downscale common graphic format such as JPEG, PNG, WMF, TGA and so on… to standard web graphic formats i.e. JPEG and PNG for browsing friendly size.
When you are using this kind of software (image viewer or image resizer or some kind), perhaps you have experienced that once you select a folder it contains many big images, your application is not responding or your application is freezing.
Possibly you have a lot of Mega pixels images inside the selected folder and your application tries to load all those images. It takes a very long time even if you have a fast PC. And you are not able to do anything until it loads all image files on the memory and actually it must reload them all when you want to convert or resize them. But it will not happen with Web Resizer.
Web Resizer does not load images before you choose to load them – you will not see thumbnail images on the list view when you just select a folder.
With Web Resizer, the users are able to:
- convert common graphic format to standard web graphic format JPEG and PNG
- convert DPI
- apply resampling’s filter to make better quality
- convert sepia tone or black & white (grayscale)
- enhance compression
- make progressive JPEG file
- convert supported graphic file to 24 bit graphic (or even 8 bit PNG without having trouble)
- automatically apply contrast and brightness
- automatically sharpen images
- rename image
- insert text as watermark into image with nice soft shadow
- rotate image
- browse image
- preview image
- save a log file (multi resize mode only)
- save all resized images to a ZIP file (multi resize mode only)
- wide strings (chinese, japanese, etc..) enabled for watermark
Naturally, it is supported with batch mode resizing everything above.
Max image size will be the same as the original image.
Lets say you start Web Resizer for the first time. Try the following!
- Use Windows Explorer like folder view and file view to select a folder contains images
- Select an image file (you will see image preview)
- Select a destination folder (or check the same folder checkbox to overwrite an original image)
- Click on a button "Resize"
That’s it! You made a resized image! If your images are taken by a digital camera, I am quite sure you have got less weight than the original file here.
If you leave the other settings as it was, you have got:
- JPEG image
- 72 DPI
- Bicubic (Resampling filter)
- Image dimension (the same as the original file)
- JPEG quality: 75
Supported file formats
JPEG 2000 files
I haven’t seen this file format. And actually I have never used it myself yet. Then I tested files included with CorelDraw‘s CDRom.
