Today, digital cameras can take beautiful multi-megapixel photoss. The problem  is the photos are humongous in size. E-mailing such large photo files can clog up your recipient’s Inbox and even impossible sometime.

We showed you how to quickly resize photos before you e-mail them or transfer to your Mobile devices with the free Image Resizer, which is one of the many handy tools that make up the Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP. Unfortunately, I just realize this PowerToys utility is no longer supported in Windows Vista…

and there is no easy way to do that under Vista. Luckily I found this free utility from VSO Software called VSO Image Resizer that does exactly the Microsoft PowerToys Resizer for XP.

Once install, you can browse to the folder containing the photos; highlight one or several of them using standard Windows Shift, Ctrl; right mouse click and select resize. A copy of the newly resized will be created in the same folder.

    This option is possible via Web Sessions, Skype or Phone conferences and direct visits
    onsite (in the case of the large scale project). So it’s up to the few remaining independents like Lions Gate, Millennium and Anchor Bay to provide a platform. The text tool allows you to type the content of your ad directly into Inkscape.
