Idea: Automatic Photo resizer
« on: July 18, 2007, 06:41:30 AM »
Just like most people, I have a large supply of photos on my computer. These are in good quality (about 3mb). To send one in an email, I have to find it, copy it to a temporary location, resize it, and then send it.
Could someone please write a hotkey program which ideally links into Picasa2 and copies the selected image to a temporary position (say desktop) and resizes it to a standard size. And most importantly, doesn't hurt the original.

Maybe use a screen capture of the image with the desktop coordinates in the right spot, then automatically save it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

justice

Also, there's Image Resizer, a powertoy by ms which adds an entry to the context menu of images, and is aimed at doing exactly what you are asking for ;)
You can find it at http://www.microsoft...oys/xppowertoys.mspx

Thanks for your help,
Actually I have now found that I was just too blind to see the button in Picasa which does what I want. It can automatically resize pictures when it exports them to temp folder.
Easy when you know how, the problem is that I never have the time to fully learn all the habits of my programs, it wasn't in the right-click menu so I finished looking.
My mistake, :huh:

Thanks anyway.
