Resizing pictures on the fly !
Daily millions of pictures are beeing resized
from camera picture sizes into thumbnails or other sizes suitable for websites and
photobooks.Most advanced photo software can perfrom this including resharpen the images or
giving them a different jpg compression.Because many people are find themself overloaded
with buttons und menues i wrote this little onlinetool which is very simple to use.Simply
load a picture and enter width or height of the desired picture, then press
"resize".Oher options are optional and are described below. Note:Maximum output
width is 1024 and height 768 pixels.-This site is free to use.Please read the Terms before
using this service.
Short Manual :
Load a picture above and enter either the
desired picture width or height or percentage, then press "resize".The resized
image will appear below "output".Then rightclick on the picture and save it on
your harddisk.Note:The resizing process can take a few seconds depending on the
Thumbnailgenerator / Picture resizer - ( in 7 Steps ) :
1. Picture height :
Enter the desired Height above. If you only
enter height , width willbe calculated automaticly.Percentage is not used here.
2. Picture width :
Enter the desired Width above.If you only
enter width , height will be calculated automaticly.Percentage is not used here.
3. Percentage :
If you wish an output picture to be calculated in a certain
percentage , enter a value here.You can leave all other fields empty using this
function.Note : 10 = 10 % of the original , 100 = Full size of the original (no change).
4. Sharpness :
Because of losing sharpness when resizing an image this value
can re-sharp your picture.A value of 1= very unsharp , a value of 99=maximum sharpness.If
you leave this field empty,the output will use a value of 80. Tip: experiment around with
this value for different results.
5 . Compression :
A jpg picture can be compressed in order to save diskspace or
speed up the up- or download of the image while keeping the quality high.A value of 1(not
recommened) = very high compression gives you a very small picture output (only a few kb)
but the image looks scrambled or funny.99 is almost no compression ( highest quality,but
many kb´s ).A value of about 85 or 90 is a quite good compression and gives you a medium
output size. Note: Some pictures need a higher compression rate depending on the number of
colurs or details of the photo. Please experiment with this value to find out how it
affects the output. If you leave this field empty a value of 90 will be used by the
program to perform this graphical function.
6. Load Iimage :
Load an image from your harddisk by clicking on the button
above.The picture MUST be a jpg ! ATTENTION: Large pictures can take a few seconds to
process ! If anything fails just try again.
7.Start program :
Click on "Start".After a few seconds the output
will appear below "output".Now rightclick on the image and save it on your
