adionSoft Fast Image Resizer Documentation
Resizing your images using Fast Image Resizer is very easy.
If you need a resolution that is not listed in the drop-down box, it is also possible
to add your own resolutions.
Fast Image Resizer always preserves the aspect ratio of your pictures, which means they
will not be stretched to match the resolution you selected.
Fast Image Resizer has 2 options to rotate the images before resizing them.
JPEG Quality is the quality of the saved jpeg files. The higher this value,
the better the quality, but the larger the files will be. Values higher than 95 will
only make the files larger, without a visual improvement. 90 is usually enough for high
Resize Quality is the quality of the resize algorithm used. 'Good' will give good results and works quite fast, but creates slightly softer pictures. 'Excellent' is the recommended setting which is a bit slower, but gives you sharp results. 'Best' is usually not recommended, because it will take a lot longer than 'Excellent' and the difference is only very small.
JPEG, BMP or PNG is the compression algorithm used. JPEG is the most popular and used on the web.
It will create the smallest files, but can degrade image quality.
Destination allows you to select where the resized images will be stored. They can either be stored in the same
folder as the original pictures (but with a different name), in a sub-folder in the folder of the original pictures
or in a specific folder.
Output Filename is the filename of the resized picture. Special strings that you can use are %SRC% which will
be replaced with the original filename, %DSTX% which will be replaced with the final width of the picture, and %DSTY% which
will be replaced with the final height.
Copy EXIF data from source: Most digital cameras store additional information in the picture such as the date it was taken
as well as other technical information (flash, exposure time, camera brand and model, etc.)
Always on top will cause the main window to be always on top of other windows, so that it is easy to drop files on it.
If you want to put Fast Image Resizer on an USB Stick or CD to use on other computers without having to install it,
that is possible too.
