    ImageResizer Powertoy on Server 2003

    We use the ImageResizer.exe powertoy on our XP desktops as a simple right click tool that enables users to resize images. I'd like to use this on our Citrix boxes and I wondered if anyone else has tries this on Server 2003.

    Cheers.


    EDIT - Well it doesn't install so that's out. I use VSO Image resizer at home but it does have a nagware button. Anyone have a better alternative that has similar features.

    hiya,
    there isn't a image resizer tool for server 2k3 from microsoft (to my knowledge)

    what i do here is just use a xp machine with admin privs of the folder with the images, search for all files larger than 2MB then just highlight them all and use the tool from that xp machine.

    *BACKUP FIRST*
    Not exactly the right tool as you will need to shutdown host, but has always worked well for me.
    Linux Live CD - Gparted - GParted -- Welcome

    Or try this from DELL http://ftp.us.dell.com/app/ExtPart.exe (no gui)
    extpart c: <size>

    You can do batch file resizes/covnerts/watermarking/etc using irFanView (IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide) and I think that will install on 2003.

    I'm a bit warey of fudging it on a production box.


    @ aptproductions

    We have a couple of pieces of software including Irfanview that will do the job but the Powertoy only requires a right click so it's very straight forward.


    @ apaton

    I'm after an image resizer e.g. .jpg files not a partition resizer.

    this is what i use.. see attatched.

    place exe in root of c: and import the reg file.

    this will give you a context menu on most image files and will create the resized file next to the original.
