The program has a nice interface that corresponds to its workflow, which makes it quite easy to use. Not only that, it is also integrated with Windows shell, so you can use it directly from the contextual menu. Moreover, there is a quick tutorial from which you can learn the basics.

The tool supports a long list of image formats, and it can even import RAW photographs as originally captured by your camera. To create a list, you can start adding files one by one, but it is also possible to import a complete folder. Yet, it would be good if it could connect to your camera and transfer the existing photos as well.

After this initial step, you can proceed to set the output, Probably, the best idea for inexperienced users is to pick one of the available target profiles, which are configured to match specific purposes and resolutions. However, more advanced users can also set every output parameter to meet their particular needs. In this regard, it is possible to choose a mode (fit, stretch, center and crop) and combine various ways to deal with resolution and aspect ratio. There other actions, like resizing and compressing, creating PDF or generating a collage. Likewise, you can use a group of advanced features, such as filters, effects, compression, and rotation. Finally, the converted photographs can be saved on a local folder or sent by email.

All in all, Light Image Resizer does not do anything you cannot do with other utilities available, even those that come with your operating system. However, it has the undeniable merit of making image conversion and resizing more efficient. The tool converts photos quite fast and without any quality loss. Therefore, if transforming multiple pictures is part of your daily activities, it is a good idea to take a look at this product, which can be tried for free.
