    Ace free jpg (etc) cruncher.

    This is an excellent wee, free piece of software. At it's normal setting I can reduce a jpg photo to a great quality thumbnail and reduce the file size 30X.

    Any web developers, I would suggest you have a look at this. Anyone just interested in reducing filesizes dramatically will also like it.

    Easy Thumbnails is a popular free utility for creating accurate thumbnail images and scaled-down/up copies from a wide range of popular picture formats. An elegant interface makes it a snap to find your images and select them for processing individually, in groups, or in whole folders, using a simple file selector and built-in image viewer. You can use slider controls to rotate images and adjust their contrast, brightness, sharpness and quality, and check out the results with the built-in viewer.
    Key Features
    Scale images up or down in batches
    Nine resampling filters, including Lanczos3
    Sharpen soft images from digital cameras
    Real-time preview of target image
    Supports the new JPEG 2000 image format
    Preserves EXIF data in JPEG images
    Supports lossless JPEG rotation
    Free software producing quality results
    It really is the bees knees.

    This is just what a lot of people on this site need. Not everyone can cope with Photoshop, it can be daunting, and many people post images that are far too big. This software should be remembered, maybe someone could make a smiley pointing to it, that can then be aimed at those who post half megabyte pics.

    It also batch converts. I just did 174 photo's to thumbnails in one go.

    Took 1 or 2 minutes. It also renames the thumbnail to tn_filename.jpg (or whatever).

    Good point.

    It would also solve the avatar, sig issues. At least for static images. People could have any picture they wanted, as long as they stayed within the height / width rules.

    I'm really not fussed.

    If a mod wants to move it that's cool. I was just trying to be helpful.

    As this appears to be the busiest place and the one which would benefit most, I put it here.

    No problem either way.

    Perhaps you could report it in the "report anything unusual" thread.

    No no, I'm not going to report anything and I agree that this is the busiest place and yes it's very helpful, but I thought I'd say it before someon else did

    That great J'Pol, I'll be adding that to my site when I have a little time.

    It probably belongs in Softwareworld, but I'll let it rest as the comments already here would look a bit wierd there
