      1. Choose Resize by Percent.
      2. Enter the desired percentage (1-500).

    2. The original pictures are not modified during the resizing process. The resized pictures will be stored in subfolder called "Processed" located under the folder containing the original pictures.
    3. Once complete, Windows Explorer automatically launches and displays the resized pictures.
    4. QuickResizer resizes pictures in proportion to the original width and height. It will not stretch pictures out of proportion. Any leftover space will be replaced with a white background. You may change this background color as explained in the Advanced Options section.
    5. QuickResizer automatically saves your current settings and remembers them the next time you start the program.

ADVANCED OPTIONS
If your main purpose is to shrink JPG pictures to a smaller size, QuickResizer is set and ready to go. If you wish to work with other file formats or tweak additional settings, you will need to use the Advanced Options. To do so, click Options on the Main Screen and then select Advanced Options.

INPUT FILE FORMAT / OUTPUT FILE FORMAT
By default, QuickResizer is set and optimized for processing JPG/JPEG files. You will get the best picture quality when both your input and output files are JPG/JPEG format. Nevertheless, QuickResizer supports five graphic file formats:
  • JPG/JPEG
  • GIF
  • PNG
  • BMP
  • TIF/TIFF
QuickResizer is not case-sensitive and recognizes different file format naming conventions (JPG/JPEG, TIF/TIFF). Please note that QuickResizer doesn't support resizing of multi-page TIFF or animated GIF images. It only resizes the first frame of the image. The rest of the frames will be lost.

OUTPUT FILE SUFFIX
By default, the Output File Suffix is empty, meaning your resized picture files will have the same file names as your original picture files. You can add suffix to your file name if you like. For example, if you set the File Suffix as _resized, a file called Vacation.JPG will be resized into a new file named Vacation_resized.JPG.
OUTPUT FILE QUALITY
By default, quality is set to High. While pictures created in Low and Medium require less disk space, this benefit is typically offset by the reduction in picture quality. For most purposes, it is recommended that this option be set to High.
DISPLAY PROCESSED FOLDER
After pictures are resized, QuickResizer will automatically start Windows Explorer and display the new pictures within the Processed folder. By default, this option is set to YES. If you would like to disable it, simply select NO.
BACKGROUND COLOR
QuickResizer resizes pictures in proportion to the original width and height. It will not stretch pictures out of proportion. Any leftover space will be replaced with a white background. To change the background color, click the Modify Color button. A color palette appears. Select the desired color and click OK. QuickResizer will save and remember this setting for future use.
