I'm trying to get my computer back to normal after the hard drive failure and replacement . In the past I used Xnview to resize my photos for posting on RRL . The new Xnview download ,as offered in another thread about posting pics on RRL, doesn't look anything like the old Xnview ....can't figure out how it works for resizing pics .

Anyone got another idea ...even a different download that is , hopefully , FREE ?

Personally I like http://www.irfanview.com/ . It's free and great for batch conversions. I think it is pretty simple to use.

Good stuff! and IMNSHO it knocks spots off XnView - I dumped that two days after downloading it! The screen grabber is superb

Hi Terry,
Did you down-load XnView.
If so the opening page is different on my computer.
Just x out of the first page view and this leaves you with a batch of tabs on top of the page which is blank aside from these tabs.
Just click on file and open the picture you want to resize.
Hope this is what you are seeing as when my computer crashed this replaced the first page when I down-loaded it.

Thanks for those sites Joe and Jack , I'll have a look . Bags , I'll see what I can do with that opening page as you described ....the one that downloaded with the "Xnview Browser " makes no sense to me .

Thanks Guys .

Heres one more Terry:

Take a look at PhotoRazor Photo Resizer 1.4 - http://www.stormdance.net

I find it fast and easy. I use setting of Width 600 pixels and 85% quality takes my 3mb images down to ~50kb, does multiples or singles.

And its free.

Terry, if you want an older copy of XN let me know. I'll email it to you.
