Do you share your pictures with your friends via social community site like Facebook, Twitter, Orkut or any other or send them via email often? Then you must have to upload lots of images everyday and you might need to edit them too. Because nowadays digital cameras (even mobile camera) are capable of taking high resolution pictures and those pictures aren’t suitable for Internet Transfer. With the development of hardware of digital cameras, 10, 14 Mega Pixel or even bigger resolution of snapping device is everywhere. Pictures taken by those are enormous in size (>5 Mega Byte each). So you must have to resize them before uploading to anywhere. Fotosizer is a simple and freeware Windows application that allows to resize multiple images at once quickly and easily. It is an easy to use and simple application that can save your time greatly by batch resizing and adding effect to lots of pictures at once.
