    I have tried resizing a picture for a friend but for some reason I need to set to 1600 by 2400 pixels but even if I do have it set by Paint.net it says its the wrong size when she tries to upload it.

    Home on the range.
    IrfanView is another excellent FREE program to accomplish this and much more.

    Always,

    The FastStone products are excellent. I use the FastStone Image Viewer. It includes the viewer which makes it very easy to resize images.

    FastStone Resizer can do many files at a time. So, to me, that is an advantage over the FS Image viewer. Both are superb products.

    Yes, batch resizing is a great feature when you have multiple pics and you want to resize them all at the same time (to the same size). I like the image viewer because I often need to resize individual pics to nonstandard sizes. Why not install both of them? :thumb:

    It's worth taking a look at the free version of Zoner too, it all depends on your needs:

    ...or the same percentage, or different or the same destination directory...
    Both is is the way to go for max flexibility.

    XnConvert is probably one of the most extensive.
