    Need Help with Image resizer

    I downloaded an image resizer and got the added bonus of a trojan horse with it. Luckily, AVG caught it and isolated it. My question is, which one do you use?

    I do all my image editing in photobucket.
    I have chosen to be happy because it is good for my health - Voltaire

    I use Picassa. It's free from google. Just "export" the file and specify the # pixels you want on a side.

    I use Irfanview. I've been using it for years and it's easy to learn and use.

    I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager for storing, resizing, and editing. It's simply where all the photos are automatically stored on my PC and came free as part of the initial software. It's NOT part of MS Office.

    You can also resize in Paint, either by pixels or percentage, which comes with the accessories on most computers.

    I also just got rid of AVG, not the free version, after three years because it failed to get rid of/isolate a Trogan Horse that completely destroyed my internet capability. Major hassle.

    i have been using irfanview for about 15years. freeware. never ever had a virus or a trojan. i, too, use AVG & it found a virus on the home site of another program i have also liked for years when i was doing an update recently. so, irfanview is all i am using now. accepts photoshop plugins. also. i can resize, edit colors, red eye and all usual photo issues. i have looked at gimp too. another great program. but i am not sure it has the range of capabilities of irfanview.

    ...my son is a software engineer. he started out with degree in design of computer graphics/animation. he has commented on some of my nature photography, and is impressed w my photo editing. he also has installed photoshop on my pc, which is fun...but steep learning curve. so, being the lazy nonprofessional photographer that i be ---i use irfanview )
