Batch image resize. What is the best tool?

There are plenty of tools out there but the one that is simple to use and does its job really well is
Picture Resizer 2.0. You can download it from here.

How does it work?

1 Download PhotoResize400.exe and place it on your desktop.
2 Drag and drop JPG files or folders with JPG files on the application icon.
3 The resized files will be placed next to the originals. The bigger size of your image will be 400 pixels.

If you want the biggest size to be say 600 pixels than simply rename the desktop file from PhotoResize400.exe to PhotoResize600.exe.
If you want to resize the pictures in a folder and ALL its subfolders them add an R to the file name – PhotoResize400R.exe.

And if you want the resized images to overwrite the existing ones add I, add H for higher quality, so if you rename the desktop icon to PhotoResize600RIH.exe and drag and drop a folder with images on the icon all the images in the folder and it’s subfolders will be resized overwriting the existing files.

If you need to work with images in diiferent formats (than JPG) then you can download irfanview – also a free software that is widely used.

Games are running slow on a new computer?! What could be the reason?

Make sure that you have the latest version of DirectX installed.
Make sure that you have the latest drivers for your graphics card.
If that doesn’t help try turning down your graphics settings.

And last but not least adding more RAM or better graphic card wouldn’t hurt either.
