Reviewed by Chris Thomas

"Resize, import and or compress your images."

Overview

Light Image Resizer is a useful application that gives you the ability to compress images into smaller sizes/resolution for aesthetic and disk space conservation purposes. This software lets you quickly resize and reorganize images to accommodate the visual and space allocation needs of users.

Installation

With a file size of about 9 MB, this compact application downloads and installs in less than 2 minutes on most modern computers. Compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and 7.

Interface

At first glance the interface appears to be extremely simplistic, with no clutter and a professional appearance that is easy to navigate. However, after you have imported an image for resizing, all of the advanced options and features appear, instantly converting the main window into a complex control center that some would say is a bit overwhelming. Nonetheless, advanced users appreciate this complexity due to the enhanced functionality it provides.

Pros

  • Lets you resize multiple images simultaneously using preset criteria that can be adjusted to accommodate the needs and preferences of users

  • Use resizing presets that are already predefined within the application, or type in your own custom values to control the amount of pixels and the percentage of image size increase or decrease

  • Configuration settings give you the ability to create copies of images, resize original files, and even relocate them to a different directory on your hard drive

  • You can add basic special effects like Sepia, Transparency, or Black and White, and you can even add watermarks on the fly

  • View EXIF data properties

  • Lets you convert images to and from all of the most commonly used graphics formats

  • Preview function lets you get an accurate look at what the new image will look like when the resizing process is finished. You can even zoom in and out of previews and view them in full-screen

  • Integrates seamlessly with the Windows shell menu, so you can right-click any image and instantly launch and perform specific tasks within Light Image Resizer

  • Lets you save disk space by compressing high-definition images into 1600x1200 resolution without significantly sacrificing quality

  • Rename multiple files at once using preset templates or user-defined values

Cons

  • Some believe that the developers should hide the more advanced options within the interface so that they don't take up space and confuse novice users.

Alternatives

Notable alternatives include RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool), FastStone Photo Resizer, Image Tuner, XnConvert, and Fast Image Resizer. Of these competitors, RIOT is by far the most popular, offering a compression ratio and output quality that is equal to or greater than that of Light Image Resizer.

Conclusion

If you're looking for a quick and easy way to shrink or enlarge images of various formats, this software provides an ideal solution with intuitive functionality and powerful compression capabilities. Light Image Resizer not only lets you quickly resize multiple images, it also lets you rename, relocate, edit, and convert them all in a single streamlined process.

What's new in this version: New Extend to square mode (for Instagram), Animated GIF creation, Rename action to just rename image files without changing content, manual visual crop, background removal (powered by remove.bg), new collage templates, and lots of other improvements
