    If you are just after something to shrink your photos then something smaller may be worth looking at. Give Ifranview a go, it's excellent at batch conversions and shrinking photos. http://www.irfanview.com/
    please ask before PP my images

    For really quick resizing I just use a Windows Explorer plug in which resizes to small medium or large just by using the menu you get when you 'right click' on an image in Explorer. I find this handy for quickly posting to web or email.

    Same as mopsy;
    I use the free windows resizer 'plug in' for emailing - its an easy right click, and it auto saves.
    The original isnt affected.

    I've always used ACDSee, but only because I had the program. Now after a reformat of cx will probably follow the herd and go with the windows resizer 'plug in' with Thunderbird.

    Cath, what brand of camera do you use?
    Some of the programs that come with the camera are quite capable at basic editing ( along the same lines as Picasa at least ) and in some cases may even provide better raw file conversion to JPEG if you are using that format.
    There are quite a few capable "free" programs available and then you can venture into the realms of the complex editing programs available at moderate to substantial cost with features that require plenty of education to master.

    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.

    FastStone: http://www.faststone.org download and Ifranview http://www.irfanview.com download have great batch processing including resizing.
    I use http://picasa.google.com download as a viewer and shrinker but for some reason RAW images on my old Canon 400D sometimes come out purple. The people feature is awesome.

    Digital Photo Professional came with my camera and is quite good but slow.

    Regards

    ha, be prepared for years of learning. I have used it for about 8 years now, and i still learn new ways to do things. It is one HUGE program. Try getting Scott Kelby's "Adobe Photoshop for Digital Photographers" for the version you have, it is brilliant to learn from
