Able Photo Resizer. Features

Resize Pictures, Resize Image and Photo Resize Software.

Most photos acquired using a digital camera or a scanner are too large for use on any web page, they must be resized first.

We have provided Able Photo Resizer to allow you to easily resize your photos in three easy steps.

Photo Resizer includes the ability to batch resize pictures, batch resize photos, and perform batch image resize functions for the purpose of email (to friends and family) and web sites, or just to save space on your hard drive, or whatever reason you might have.

It can be used to enlarge a small image for better viewing using different filters for optimum results.

The resizing allows you to force a specified width or height and keep proportions, or define fixed image dimensions. Besides, the program can rename file and more. You will be able to process thousands of files in a few seconds.

This Photo Resizer can keep or remove all metadata information (Jpg EXIF, Tiff Tags etc). Most cameras add information about aperture, light, comments and much more to the photo. You can delete this to reduce the file size even more.

Able Photo Resizer support more than 60 picture file format.


It supports 18 output formats: JPG, TIF, GIF, PCX, PNG, BMP, TGA, PXM, PPM, PGM, PBM, JP2, J2K, PDF, PS, DCX, PSD, ICO.

This program was created out of frustration of users asking questions like How do I resize images? How do I make images smaller? How do I shrink this picture for an avatar? and How to create a thumbnail?

So, we created the Able Photo Resizer tool and now anyone can Resize Images and Digital Pictures.

To resize your images it is as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4 and no need to open an image editor for this!

Browse your computer and select your image/photo to resize [Add Files / Add Folder...].

Set the new size for your picture (in percentage or in pixels) - use a preset or choose a custom size.

Select destination directories for the resized photos and thumbnails.

Click "OK".

The program offers several different resizing methods to choose from and can automatically recognize image sizes to calculate the best fit.

Click the drop-down list to specify a unit of measurement.

"Use Width and Height": both Height and Width will be used to resize an image (without keepping aspect)
"Use Width (keep aspect)": Width will be used to calculate new Height (keepping aspect)
"Use Height (keep aspect)": Height will be used to calculate new Width (keepping aspect)
"Use Width or Height (keep aspect)": both Height and Width will be used to resize an image (with keepping aspect)

Detect Landscape/Portrait: Base the orientation of the original image.

Advanced parameters.

Remove EXIF information:
Most cameras add information about aperture, light, comments and much more to the photo. You can delete this to reduce the file size even more.

If you want to maintain a specific width to height ratio, select one of following options from the "Aspect Ratio" drop-down list:

Original: maintains the original image's width to height ratio.
1 x 1: forces the width and height to be equal.
2 x 3: forces a width to height ratio of 2:3.
3 x 2: forces a width to height ratio of 3:2.
3 x 4: forces a width to height ratio of 3:4.
4 x 3 forces a width to height ratio of 4:3.
3 x 5: forces a width to height ratio of 3:5.
5 x 3 forces a width to height ratio of 5:3.
16 x 9 forces a width to height ratio of 16:9.

Select a resample filter from the "Resample Filter" drop-down list.

JPEG Compression: JPEG images can be compressed with different compression ratios. The more compressed the image is, more compression artifacts you see, and the less compressed the image is, the more time will it take for the viewer to load from the web.

By quality: Set the fixed value of the compression strength. The bigger is the value, the better is the quality and the size it is. With this setting, images that have more small details will be bigger in size than those that have not (for example, picture of trees will be bigger than a picture of sky). If you don't know what to set, the recommended default value it 80.

By size: Here you can set a fixed size in kilobytes that the size of output JPEG files will be less or equal to. Less detailed pictures will be compressed with better quality, and all pictures processed with the same By size setting will take exactly the same time for a viewer to load form the web. For example, the recommended size for a 640 by 480 pixels image is about 60 - 70 KB for fine quality, and about 90 - 100 KB for a quality that in most cases will look like perfect.

Note. If the picture looks bad, it means that you've set a too low value of size/quality.


You can resize all images or select requested condition from the drop-down list.
All images
If image Larger than
If image Smaller than
If image in Landscape mode
If image in Portrait mode

Anna Maria De Matteis

1) What do you use Able Photo Resizer for? How does it help you?

I have a real estate agency and I have to load a lot of Photos on a lot of Web-Sides. I always take pictures of the properties I'm selling, that are too heavy. Able Photo Resizer is very quick and make possible to choose very simple the number of pixel, that the Web-Side requires.

2) What do you consider to be the most interesting feature of the program?

I'm really nota reallyvery techonological woman. This also the reason why I love this program, than it is very easy to use. So I'm not able to imagine the future of this program. I think, it is already in the future!

3) Where did you first hear/read about Able Photo Resizer?

I was just looking for a good program to resize Photos. I also tried other programs, but no one is useful as this.

Gary Lehman

I frequently post pix to facebook and with my high resolution high megapixel DSLR, the images are too big so I use Able Photo Resizer to cut them down to size for easier uploading and transmittal to friends.

The program just works, and works well, and is intuitive, and provides exactly the function I want, and it does not corrupt colors or introduce any distortions.

I originally found out about it either by trolling the internet or reading about it in one of my photography magazines, or perhaps in one of my computer magazines. The RESIZER from Microsoft I also use but it is too limited in function for me and so cant be my only utility. I use this utility a lot more for downsizing files.

I really cant think of any added functions to add. It does what I want it to do and it does it very well.

Thanks for a great product which is an important part of my workflow for social media and friends/family socializing !

    I downloaded the 30 day trial and found I could resize my photos in minutes in bulk instead of doing them one at a time. This saves me hours of sitting at the PC.
    The best thing about the programme is the speed in which it resizes the pictures so they are small enough to email and also they do not take up so much space on the hard drive.
    I looked on a Google search for a programme to resize multiple images. Read about a few and downloaded yours. I hade not been using it for half an hour when I thought "I have to have this programme: so I proceeded to buy it there and then.
    For myself I see no need for any improvements as it works brilliantly for me.

Chris Wood

Thank you for a great program, save me hours batching photos for our site, worth every penny, would recommend the programme to any body that has large amounts of images to resize, the speed is incredible and the quality of images is fantastic.
Great Product, Great Service, Great Price.

Jennifer Hanson

I purchased Able Photo Resizer to resize photos for my web-site and to make them smaller so I could email them with ease. I tried many demos and this was the first that worked. After using for a few weeks, I purchased it. Thank you.
