I have been looking around for software I can use to resize images for use in my blogs because I am currently finding Photoshop too "heavyweight" for this simple need. I needed something that will enable me to quickly load the software and use it, and do batch conversions as well. I have not tried the batch conversion yet, but I have downloaded Irfanview and it packs a punch. Very easy to use, and lots of powerful features awaiting to be discovered! It's freeware to boot!
