Dropresize – lovely little freeware utility resizes photos instantly


Dropresize is a fab little freeware tool which adds drag and drop simplicity to resizing photos and image files. Just fire it up (no install needed), set it to watch a folder of your choice and every time you drag or copy an image into that folder it will automatically be resized to the dimensions and quality you set. This could revolutionise your life if you do a lot of photo forwarding by email or embed images in things like websites, newsletters and such. A veritable keeper.

 Dropresize is a system tray application that watches a folder for new images and automatically resizes them into a web-friendly size. Currently it’s in a beta stage so don’t be surprised if there are still bugs. Only jpeg images are supported as of now. But other image formats will be supported in the future updates.

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?

  • My Mac has this function built in to Mac mail.

    • No it doesn't. Mac mail has a function to resize images manually as happens in Windows too. This freeware does it automatically.

  • 200 years? Better do your math again.
