Image resizer is just one of those must have tools to have on your home PC.  The project is a clone of the old power toy image resizer.   One of the reasons it is a must have is I made the change this past year to a Cannon T2i DSLR camera.  Sending a 8-12 megabyte picture to family and friends is nearly impossible.  This tool makes it quick and painless to resize pictures down to an acceptable size limit.  It also comes in very handy when you are trying to upload profile pictures or send pictures to mobile devices.  Below you can see a screenshot of the option you have to choose from.  You can basically choose from small, medium, large, mobile, or a custom size.  The nice part about the tool is that it will automatically save a new picture and and onto the file name the size you chose.  I have also included the link for the project homepage where you can download it from.  If you use it let me know what you think by leaving a comment in the post.
