Recently, I stumbled upon an excellent tool to resize images via the right-click menu in Windows. It’s the Image Resizer utility written by Brice Lambson. This utility is similar to Microsoft’s Image Resizer PowerToy, and it works fine in all versions of Windows, including Windows 10.
Resize Images via the Right-click menu in Windows 10
The resize dialog lists four preset options and also allows you to choose a custom setting where you can specify the output file dimensions:
The Resize the original pictures (don’t create copies) option is unchecked by default to prevent accidentally overwriting the source image.
When you choose the custom option, the output files will have the suffix (Custom) — e.g.,
Image Resizer – Advanced Options
To customize the output file name, click Advanced options in the resize dialog. In the File tab, you can change the file name suffix as desired:
For example, setting the parameter to
%1 (%3 x %4) will result in the image dimensions suffixed with the output file name. See 3rd file listed in the following image.
In the Encoding tab, you can set the Fallback encoder, JPEG quality level, PNG interlacing, and TIF compression settings.
In the Sizes tab, you can remove or customize the four preset options and add your own options to the list with custom dimensions.
The sizes mentioned here will show up in the resize pictures dialog’s preconfigured list.
