Light Image Resizer
Quickly rescale your pictures with Light Image Resizer

Resizing images for any purpose can be a chore. If you are putting together a web site and need to ensure that all of your images have the same dimensions, it can take time to load each picture into an image editor and apply the relevant settings. Some image editors offer a batch processing option and there are also many standalone tools that do this too. Light Image Resizer is a similar application that can be access via the context menu so it is always to hand whenever you need it.

You can opt to work with a single image at a time, or select several at once, or even choose to work with an entire folder. Having activated program from the context menu you can then specify the resizing options you would like to use and the images with be saved as new files on one fell swoop. But it doesn’t end there – there are plenty other options to explore in the program that give you greater control over how your images will appear.

You can also convert images to sepia or black and white, apply special effects and add borders. Watermarks can also be added to prevent pictures that you post online from being used elsewhere and you can decide whether or not Exif information should be retained. With the ability to send converted images to Facebook, save as PDFs and much more, there’s plenty here for you to do to your images. The program usually costs $23.79, but for a limited period it is available free of charge in return for liking ObviousIdea on Facebook.

While this is an incredibly useful tool, we should point out that the installer does include a number of optional extras. Once you reach the end of the main program installation, you will be invited ot install a number of browser add-on and apps. If you aree not interested in any of these, take a moment to ensure that you untick all of the boxes as well as selecting the ‘I don’t want one’ option and indicating that you do not want to change your search engine for homepage.

Version 5.0.8.0 brings (Changelog):

NEW: background color selection for collage
FIXED: subfolders command line parameter was not handled correctly
FIXED: parsing of subfolders when using wildcards could add files several times
FIXED: background color of watermark text was not applied
FIXED: don’t add temporary profiles to recent list
FIXED: some collage templates were producing the wrong layout in the saved image
FIXED: profile was not cleared in some cases, which could wrongly override parameters from command line
FIXED: wrong image and file size displayed in preview for multi-page images (TIFF)
FIXED: last used profile was not selected correctly in some cases
IMPROVED: expand relative file paths from command line with working directory

Verdict:

Easy enough to use, but nothing special, this is a tool that gets the job done, but there’s better available.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.40

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.40

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
