Windows XP can use a Powertoy, which lets you resize images from the right click menu. This tool was not made available for Windows Vista. In search of a similar tool, I found the Image Resizer Powertoy Clone. Here’s how to do this in XP.

    In firefox I use Zoom Image to enlarge any photo or graph. My photo editing I like Irfanview for enlarging photos.
    I remember using XP enlarger, but in Vista and 7 you have magnifier which increases the area on the screen.

    This tool really comes in handy when you need a fast resizing of photos for quick preview and sharing … Must have and should be in the native application of Windows itself !

    Thanks for posting image resizers for both XP and Vista, my question is why doesn’t windows offer it to begin with? Resizing pics is something most of us have to toil with.
