    Never tried this one before. Just like you said, an image captured via camera is most often too large and could take ages to be uploaded. My personal favorite to do image resizing jobs is PhotoScape. After that, to further reduce the size a little without affecting the image quality, I use Yahoo! Smush.it.

      Hi Peter! πŸ™‚

      PhotoScape is a nice tool! πŸ™‚

      About Yahoo! Smush, I din’t like it much, ofcourse its a nice tool to reduce the size of an image, but what Yahoo Smush does is, 1st uploads the image, reduces the size and then we have to download it & then upload it wherever we want..

      Rather than this, I would directly upload the image on the place I want, rather than uploading the full size image for conversion and the downloading it and then again uploading the reduced sized image! πŸ˜›

      I wish Yahoo! Smush was a desktop application! πŸ™‚

    Haven’t heard about any of the tools above. I use Corel Draw for resizing the images which I use for my blogs and it does the job pretty good.

      Hello Naser,

      Corel is a very nice software.. The tools mentioned in the post are small apps which would only help to reduce the size of the image.. They are nowhere in any comparison with Corel Draw.. Corel is much much better software, as you have hell lot of great option to in Corel! πŸ™‚
