There are many ways to resize an image. Shrink pic is the ultimate solution to image resizing You do not need to do anything and it will automatically resize your photo when you attach it to your Outlook to send it to a friend, or even sending the photo to your friend via Windows Live Messenger or Skype.
All you need to do is install Shrink Pic. It automatically detects when you’re sending large photo files and compresses them in the background. Shrink Pic runs in the background. It has a taskbar icon which tells you it’s waiting for photos to be sent.
Then, when it detects that you’re sending a large photo, it automatically creates a temporary copy, resizes it and sends it instead. It gives you a notice message, so you’ll know the photo you sent was resized. Of course, the original photo doesn’t change, only the temporary copy.
You can control how Shrink Pic resizes your photos. Select between three automatic resize levels or enter your own custom sizes. Shrink Pic also recognizes rotated photos (portrait layout) and resizes them intelligently, so you don’t need to worry about that too.
If you don’t want Shrink Pic to automatically resize your images, just right click on the Shrink Pic icon on your traybar and uncheck Enable.
