I have another way to resize pictures and this software is called PIXresizer. I used this freeware for more than a year now and this is what I used when I just want to plainly resize the pictures. It can support BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG and TIFF file format. You can resize a single picture and group of pictures. The interface is easy as 1-2-3. Below is the description of the freeware from the site:
The reduced files are saved in a different folder, so your original images are not altered at all. PIXresizer offers several different resizing methods to choose from and can automatically recognize image sizes to calculate the best fit. In addition, it can convert between image formats (JPEG, GIF, BMP, PNG and TIFF), rotate images, convert to grayscale and resize multiple images in batch mode. It also allows you to keep the original EXIF information from your images. A great companion for webmasters and digital photographers. - bluefive.pair.com
I definitely recommend this freeware to anyone who would like to resize their pictures. To download please go this link.
