I finally found a good quality image editing software that is free and works great. Fookes easy thumbnails is a quality product from a well known software distributor. Its very small at only about 1Mb and quickly installs. Using it is very easy and took me less than 2 minutes to figure out. I quickly took 60 pictures taken from my digital camera, shrunk them and renamed them.
Easy thumbnails was much easier to use and free in comparison to Smaller Animals Thumbnailer which I formally used. The trial ran out and I felt no need to buy it.
Easy To Use Software
This software is so user friendly and so easy to use that I was able to teach two of my computer illiterate web design clients via email. They're now able to take pictures with their cameras and shrink them to a reasonable size so they can email them to me. Beats the hell out of having to get them from their cameras! So if you have people you want to suggest an easy picture shrinking software this is it.
