  Great Software    hits: 423

Very Good Software. Its so easy to resize mass of images ... But Ive one hint, which would improve it and I think it is not so complicated to do. Why rename images with "mini-" . Why not make a directory under the actual directory named "resized" or better "resized_640" for images, which were resized to 640px and than use the original-filename ? So I could resize the same images moretimes in several resolutions. Would be very pleasant for web-developer who want to make image-gallerys in several resolutions.

Hi!

Thank you for your hint. Actually, this is already done! You can select the Options tab, and set the desired renaming options. There is one option that puts the images in a subfolder named 'resized'. Your suggestion that there should be a folder named 'resized_640' is very good, I might add this in the future versions.

Thanks!

Have fun,

Miha.

  Access Violation message    hits: 902

Hi. Great sottware - thanks. But I have an
image that won't resize. OS is
Vista.

Type of file, quoting from properties: "JPEG
Image (.jpg)".
Size 1.15MB;
What happens:
- I select the file/image.
- Select box JPG.
- Select Better Quality.
- Click Resize.
There is a click but no file (image name)
appears, as in "mini-filename".
I try again and get the message: "Access
violation at address 004662AD in
module Reszer.exe.
Write of address 0389000" (this number
changes on each re-try)
(And the meaning of the last sentence is not
clear: write of, off, from? What
does it mean?).

I also tried "JPEG quality" button and got the
same message. I stopped
and clean started computer.

Finally used MS Paint to resize to 613KB.
Then after 3 attempts Mihova
resize worked - down to 35KB

OK, problem solved; but why the access
violation & need to use another
progarm first?

Thanks for any help

Hi,

I'm glad that you've solved the problem.
The access violation message is a system message, so I don't really have a lot of control over it (and also don't always know what it means). In your case it might have been an error in my program or even an error in the photo. These errors are really hard to analyse, they don't happen often and they differ from one computer to another.
Basically you don't need to use any other program before you use Mihov Image Resizer, but in your case it looks like this helped.
I hope this doesn't happen again in the future!

Thank you for your report and best regards,

Miha.

I had the same problem. In my case there where problems with the images. In MS-Explorer you can see the images. But if you try to open this images with Internet-Explorer or Firefox you will see nothing. So I opened every image one time with ms-paint and saved it again. Afterwards the image-resizer worked without problems.
This was a problem with the images not the resizer ...

  great software but 1.2 filenaming option request.    hits: 611
Posted by    
Reply      Monitor
hello,

great software, works like a dream. my technically challenged aunt just came over to "change the roll of film" in her camera. To my dismay her card had 1600 pictures in it and now I have to rotate them properly. Well along comes this program to do it in batch and bam! I'm done. its wonderful.

One request though, the rotated files all were named with the orginal name and a prefix, eg
abc.jpg ---> right-abc.jpg

but I'd prefer:
abc.jpg --->abc-right.jpg

or even better a user selectable string:
abc.jpg ---> [prefix]<name>[postfix].jpg

where the user gets to set the fixes.

I thought the 1.2 was supposed to have some more options on this feature, but I can only find:
add prefix
create in subfolder
overwrite.

help --> about shows I'm running version 1.2 on and I'm on a Windows XP pro system.

TIA,

Jon

Hi!

Thanks for the compliments and your comments.

You have seen right: currently there are only three naming options in version 1.2. Where did you hear that it should have a customizable naming system?

Maybe I will add this in the future, but there are quite some good programs out that do this much better. I use Total Commander for this task.

Have fun,

I can't seem to find it now, but in one of your descriptions of 'new features' you talked about more options than just "mini-" I remember the prose definitely had the string "mini" in it.

I do have and use quite frequently a batch file renaming program (http://www.1-4a.com/rename/) It just would be nice if your program allowed me to skip this step.

I still find it amazing how Windoze still won't acknowledge batch processing and scheduled (non-user activated) tasks.

Maybe in Windows 7... By the way, Mihov Image Resizer works on Windows 7 beta, tested and passed. It resizes images perfectly and fast.

Hello!

I hope you've managed to recover from all the holidays and that you've had fun doing it! I sure have and as a New Years' present I have released a new version of Mihov Image Resizer, my most popular utility. The program is still free, which is my way of helping you through the times of recession.

The new version 1.2 brings some frequently requested features:
* hidden and system folders are visible with the program now
* selected pixel size is remembered for the next program run (separate for JPG, GIF and BMP)
* selected JPG quality is remembered for the next program run
* remember last used folder and load it next time the program runs
...and others.

You can download the version 1.2 of Mihov Image Resizer from its web site:
http://www.imageresizer.com/

I wish you all the best!

Have fun,

Miha Psenica.

  +s Attibutes hide folder from program dropdown    hits: 794

Reply      Monitor
Is there anything that I can do to get this flawless program to show folders with + S Attibutes. I have a few folders with the desktop ini file changed to show a back ground image and change the text color. It seems that this causes the Miha Utilitie to ignore the folder. I am using Win XP Pro. Other than that, a most usefull program. I down loaded 2000 thumbnails from www.netflix.com of my rental history and wanted to put it in a slide show but the thumbs were to small, but this program if I put them in a different folder enlarged them from 5k 110x150 to 400 and it looks suppriseingly well. I am going to try it at 300 too. Anyway thanks again for a wonderful program. Most programs want to shrink, yours shows thinking out of the box and is admirable.

Hi Chuck!

Thank you for your compliments on Mihov Image Resizer! I designed it to be good, so I'm glad you like it.
You have done a good job researching why some folders don't show. And you are right: if you change folder icon in Windows XP or Vista (and possible also Win7 - Windows 7), then the folder becomes system folder and is not visible for Mihov Image Resizer any more.
Anyway, I have fixed this is _some_ version, just not sure which. What version are you using? I will try to instruct you on using the right version if this 'feature' is back to the latest version...

Thank you and good luck,

Miha.

Well, in every case the aspect ration of the picture stays the same. This means that the larger side will be resized to the size you enter. I suggest you enter 1000 and see. Again, the aspect ratio stays the same, so maybe you won't achieve 1000x768.

Miha.

Yes, aspect stays same, ok.
But that i only can reduce larger side or increase smaller side of pic,
well, that does not solve my problem.
Yes i can manually resize every pic in nearly every available program.
But if i have many pics then neither these programs are useful, nor yours is either.
For example i have pic:
L1000 x H900 to resize to Lxxxx x H768 then yes,
I can manually calculate xxxx = 1000x768/900 = 853 and then resize with ur utility to 853 and
result is L853xH768 as wished, yes.
But this is no advantage, if i dont have many same sized fotos.
As i said, single fotos can be resized more comfortable in other programs to height 768 without calculation.
But what, if one has many different ones?

Hi!

Yes, you are right - in this case you can't use my program. In this case you would need a program that uses the smallest number of the both for the resizing. I'm sorry... I hope you will find the program that will do the job.

Have fun,

Miha.

Hi!

Thanks for your question. Maybe the problem is that you are inputting a bigger pixel size than the original picture? The picture will not be upsized, only downsized.
Another option is that you didn't select the file on the left side when clicking Resize.

I hope tghis helps you to solve the problem.

As the District Manager for the states of Washington, Idaho, Montana and Oregon for the company I work for, I found your Mihov Image Resizer the almost perfect tool to share with my merchandiser reps. They are required to take pictures in their stores of their work and submit them. They are told to take the shot with the camera setting to the best quality and then they have to resize it to VGA. While there is a tool from Microsoft called Image Resizer Power Toy for XP, this doesn't come with Vista! The other thing they are told to do is to make sure they are properly oriented so the Rotate feature makes your utility a two for one shot.

The purpose of this post is to mention the 3rd task we request our reps to perform... renaming photos. If only you had a tab that addressed renaming photos this would be the absolute perfect tool for my reps to use.

I have posted an article about your tool on my website and have made that page public.

  Not Enough Storage Space    hits: 2939
Posted by    
Reply      Monitor
Hello, I am using Image Resizer 1.1 on a 2 GHz PC with 1 GB of RAM and 30 GB of free hard drive space, running Widows XP Pro with the current service packs and hot fixes, etc. When I try to resize images I've started getting the error, Not enough storage is available to process this command. I ran the program once and resized 5 JPG images (about 1.8 MB each) to a resolution of 640 pixels and it ran the first four files fine then gave me that error. I then manually selected just the one leftover file and it converted it fine (all to Best quality). I just re-ran the conversion to get the exact error message again and it wouldn't convert any of the same 5 files; I immediately got the error. Selecting just one file and trying to convert it now gives the error. I get the same error when I restart the program. I have gotten this error even sometimes after a fresh reboot, if I recall correctly but I cannot reboot now so I cannot test that for certain. Any thoughts? Thank you for your time and the great program; it's fantastic and works well, even if it does give me this error from time to time.

Hi!

Thanks for your compliments, but I received them bitterly since the program doesn't quite work for you.
I don't really have an idea, why does this happen. I remember of an old bug that was very similar to your. Well, it was not really a bug, it was more a Windows limitation. I have read about this a lot, but it's not documented well. The thing is that Windows locate some memory for graphic operations. (I forgot how it was called, some abbreviation with three letters.) This memory gets somehow full (how full it was was shown always in percent, not bytes...) and then this error happens. I have not discovered what fills this memory or how to purge it... The reason was that the error you are seeing was completely random. The only thing I know is that better system didn't help because it was Windows limitation) and that it happened only to some users (and even them only with very large files).
So I guess I can't really help you... :(

I might suggest trying resizing the same images on some other machine, even if it has lower hardware. It might work...

Best regards (and sorry for such a laaaaate answer),

Yes, it does resize to that size also. The only thing similar to your problem was when a user has had scrambled output. We have discovered that his graphic card was doing it wrong - he had 8bit graphic card that couldn't handle larger bit depth.
Maybe you are experiencing the same problem here. Do you know what kind of graphic card you're using?

If you want, you can send me an image that you can not resize to my e-mail and I'll try to resize it - just to see if the image is broken or your graphic card can't handle it.

Good luck,

Well, it had been noted that some graphic cards had problems. But it was not the problem in the graphic card, but in the direct mode that is used to resize the images. This is the reason that the resizing is so fast compared to other products.

I guess in your case WMware might be the reason, but I'm not sure why. Did you try it on some other machine?

Hmm, I guess your question needs an answer :)
I feel ashamed that I have promised some things and have not delivered them.

Actually the answer is somewhere in between. Because I haven't had time I didn't look close enough into the matter to figure out how to implement it. It's not just the matter of 'turning it on', it has to be programmed.

On the other hand, I have also forgotten how fast the time flows. I guess it's not a coincidence that I have a steady job since 2003... Since then there's less time for my hobbies, which Miha's utilities certainly is. I will try to turn my hobby into a business, but this time I won't promise anything.

I guess you're not so happy with this answer and that you would expect me to program the new feature fast. All I can say is I will try, but I give no promises.

Thank you for using my software for so many years (did you know this year is 10 years since I started Miha's utilities?) and thank you for reminding me that my job isn't everything.

Have fun,

Miha.

This time I'm really happy! After more then three years I have released a new version of Mihov Image Resizer. I have waited long enough, but I think it was worth.

So, what's new? A small design refresh and lots of other things that have been requested by you, the user, among them:
* option to put the resized images in a subfolder (keep the image name)
* option to overwrite the original image with the resized one
* always ask if overwriting files
* ability to save the resized files under a different name other then mini- like in previous versions
* option to preserve image file date and time
* options tab added
* JPEG quality moved to Options tab
* change JPEG quality only (and preserve image size in pixels)
* convert JPEG images to grey scale
* convert JPG to BMP added
* convert GIF to BMP added
* quick links to special folders (My Pictures, My Documents, Recent Files, Desktop)
* remember if the preview window was open when the program was last used
* view image window now shows image size in window caption
* remember main and preview window position and size for the next run
* .. and others!

You can download the brand new version of Mihov Image Resizer from its web site:
http://www.imageresizer.com/

As always, Mihov Image Resizer is free to use and distribute.

All the best to everyone!

Miha Psenica.

Hey, 0.10 is less than 0.9!!!

But I agree, 1.0 would be a good idea. But unfortunatelly for all the users I am not willing to release a version before I am satisfied with it. You can call me a perfectionist (which in a way I am or at least used to be), but that is how things are.

But believe me, I also would like to see it released!

No. A t the time you can only resize image and keep aspect ratio. In your case aspect ratio would be changed and that is not supported.

Hello.

For me, it would be very useful to resize images without keeping aspect ratio.
A slideshow on desktop resizes images each time they have different sizes. Modifiying aspect ratio won't affect images very much because there are a few difference's pixel
For example, I have images with 1280*960, 1280*966 and 1280*969 maximum.
If you allow modifiying of the aspect ratio in a next version, it would be great !

Sorry for my poor english.
Thanks a lot.
Cyril, France.

No, it is not possible to change images without keeping the aspect ratio. The program is used to resize photos, and it was not ment to change the ratio - in photos that would only corrupt them.

Sure...

"My Pictures" is only a virtual folder, so it's not really positioned there where you would expect it (there is no hard drive named 'Desktop' in your machine...). So Windows digs this folder deep... Usually you will find it in a place similar to this link:
c:Documents and Settings<USERNAME>My DocumentsMy Pictures
where <USERNAME> is the user that you use to login to Windows. Just browse t it and locate it.

Apart from that, My Pictures is a normal folder any you can find it on your disk.

Hope this helps,

Miha.

No, this only means that you are using wrong tab... Istead of selecting JPG tab, select the GIF tag if you want to resize gif images. If you choose that tab, you will only see the gif images in the file list. Note that the contents of the file list always depend on the tab selected.

Good luck!

Hi!

If it's on a network drive, then you'll have trouble accessing it through Mihov Image Resizer. It doesn't support networks...
But still, there is a solution. If you set a virtual drive for that network folder, for example z:, then (after restarting Resizer) you can access this disk as just any normal disk drive. There is a description how to connect a network drive:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308582

This should do the trick.

My website requires that attached pictures be no more than a certain size, and by the nature of the members of my site (an equine site), they are often fairly computer illiterate. Your resizer is exactly what they want, small, simple, easy to use.

If you are interested, the company I use for hosting is extremely reliable and very cost comparable. www.RadioTower.net. Tell Mike Cermak that Laura sent you to ask about the "webmaster's special."

Hi!

Thank you for such great compliments! I love to hear that you like my program. And even better, that you want to translate it, too!

Thereason that you haven't found a link fot the online translation is that I have temporarily removed it. There was so many quality translations that I coundn't include them all in to the program. I have also had some major problems with languages that use non-latin characters. Unfortunatelly Mihov Image Resizer is only my hobby, so I have to work for living as well and that takes me a lot of time. Which means less time for further development.
So a short answer would be that you should stay informed about the programs translations (best by mailing list) and translate the program when it will be possible again.

Thanks for your request!

Best regards,

Miha.

Hi!!

Thank you for your question about UPSIZING images. You were asking, how come that if you resize a small image to a larger one, the quality decreases. Or, if I say it with other words - the resolution increases (larger file in pixels) but the quality of the image stays the same or even decreases (visually).

Well, let me give you some information about image formats. The thing is, that jpg is copressed image format. That means, that when you were saving your image (or your camera was), you were making all the effort to make it smaller in byte size. You have put some much effort in this (again, or the camera or your software did), that you agreed to let out all the not-necessary information out of the image. Only the information that you can still see with your eye at current resolution and file size in pixels should stay in the image. That is how jpg works - it compresses the file in a way that the change to your eye is almost invisible, but the change in file size in bytes is evident.

OK, now you have the JPG that is small and nice. And now you have decided that you want to upsize (resize to a larger size) that same image. Sure, there are programs that can do that, but hey! All the extra information in the image is gone! You compressed the image! And while compressing you have decided to erase all the information that you can not see with your eye. But when you are resizing the image, and if you want the quality to stay the same, you have to have some extra information somewhere that exists in the image, but you didn't see it with your eye. And yes, you are right, that information is gone. If you still resize the image to a larger pixels size, the quality will seem much worse. That is just because there is same amount of information in a larger picture.


I hope I didn't complicate things too much and that you are still following. What I wanted to write really, was that it is normal that the image will get worse when you are trying to resize it to a biger size. There are some programs that quarantee you that they will do just that with your jpg files, but the results are not as good as their marketing is.

So, what to do? Try to find the pictures in their original size instead of trying to resize them from small files. If that is not an option, I'm afraid you'll have to live with either small imager of large images of worse quality.

Miha.

  Re: Resizing smaller    hits: 2180

Hi!

Well, this is a problem... The image is composed of pixels, and when it is resized, it is composed of pixels again. But if you resize it to 80%, then some pixels have to be lost! If you resized it to 50%, then it would be much easier - every second pixel would be gone. Because of that several algorythms have been developed so that the create pixels of different color so that our eyes are 'fooled' and we see a pretty normal picture. But of course, there are side effects - and one of them is lower clarity of the image.

My suggestion would be that you try several programs (that probably use different algorythms) and see which one creates best results for you. Why 'for you'? This is a sensitive are and I may have different opinion on what is 'better' than you. that's why you have to try and see what is best. and of course, stick to the program of your choice when you find it!

Hope this helped...

Miha.

If you want to do this, you have to copy or rename the first set of images first. The resized images also have 'mini-' prepended to the original file name, and that is why they get overwritten.
What to do to avoid this:
1. Resize imegs to the first size.
2. Copy the resized images to another folder.
3. Resize images again to the second size.

This way you'll ahve the original files, and two resized size images.

Not with my programs!

If I had to do that, I would either:
1) Make a screen shot of that word document (easy), just press the 'Print Screen' button on your keyboard and then paste the image to a graphics program.

2) install a driver for printing to file; then I would print the wjole page to an image.

3) if you have Acrobat (Acrobat, not Acrobat Reader!), then you can convert the whole document to PDF, and from there somehow to image.

4) if you don't have Acrobat, you can do that with OpenOffice for free.

Hope one of those works for you...

Hi,
I've just tried your resizing utility and I think it's great. How do you do your resizing? Do you use a library or custom code?

I'm (slowly) writing a CMS (content management system) which includes a photo gallery system and I use the ImageMagick library but my resized images don't look as good as yours. Can you give me any advice?

Thanks,
Geoff

I use both: a library and some custom programming.
My advice to you is that you search not for pixel resizing, but try to find resampling. You will find several algorythms, for example bicubic. and from there on there is a whole new world...

I hope you will send me your program when you finish it so I'll see what you did!

Good luck with it!!

Miha.

  No Scroll Bars On page 1, Images from C: Drive in    hits: 4337

Hey! A friend sent me your Ir.exe to change the size of some music he emailed to me. I am not strong on computer stuff. When I open Ir., I cannot see all of the first page (Is it the 'Homepage?) And there are no scroll bars visible to scroll over to see the whole page. Plus, I cannot get my files from the C: drive into the Ir. (If I could see all of the first page, there might be a key there.) It should be simple, I know, but I guess I'm just a dummie...

My friend scanned the music pages and emailed them to me as JPG files. You did not mention how I could view the entire homepage with scroll bars on the right and bottom, or how I should proceed to get them from my C: Drive in the Ir.

You should save the files to your hard disk, remember where you saved them and then navigate to that location from within Mihov Image Resizer. That way you will be able to resize them to a smaller size so the scrolling will not be necessary any more.

First thing you have to do is to save the picture in Outlook to your hard drive! Try do right click the picture or just find save attachments or something similar in Outlook and save the file to your hard drive, for example to the root of the c: drive.
Then you will find the saved picture there!

I am trying to resize bmp pictures. After I enter in the number of pixels wanted I hti the resize button and get "Stream read error" I unistalled and redownloaded it, but that didn't seem to help. Do you have any ideas on what I might be doing wrong? Thanks

Hmm, there may be a problem with the image you're trying to resize...? have you tried the program with some other images?

The other problem could be that you have somehow the wrong tab selected. make sure that
a) your selected tab is BMP
b9 the images you're trying to resize are really BMP. Some browsers can't tell the right type of image and they give the image the extension bmp, even if it is for example jpg.

If that doesn't work, give me more details and will find the problem!

Unfortunately, I am still having trouble resizing my pictures. I made sure that all the pictures were in bmp format and that I was on the correct tab. Of my 160 pictures, I could get about 6 to work. For the others, when I selected them no picture preview would show and when I tried to resize I would get a running stream error. These same pictures all worked when saved in JPG format. However it is important for me to keep have them in BMP at the end. Any thoughts? Thanks for your time and help

I decided to download a different image converter to see if I could do anything with that. Alas, the same stream read error occured. This leads me to believe that the problem lies within the pictures and not with the program. If you have any insight to what could make this work please let me know, but at least we know the problem is not the program

In that case I am pretty sure that the files you have are corrupted or compressed with some unsupported algorithm. If you can open them with any program then do so and save them again, this might write them in a correct way.

Hi Miha!

I don't want to ask anything, nor make any suggestion. This post is just to say "Thank you Miha!" for your wonderful Image Resizer. I've been using it for years, and it's excellent. The quality of the resized pics is great, without artifacts. This software is a must for those who, like me, enjoy digital photography.

Hi again! This is NOT an ad, as I don't made this software myself, but I found it's the perfect complement for your Image Resizer. It's a Renamer, by J.M. Falcao

It's very useful to numbering those weird names digital cameras put on pics, adding names, getting rid of the "mini-" prefix, etc.

Hope you like it!

Actually, Mihov Image Resizer doesn't support this feature yet... So I guess it never worked. Maybe you've used another program before?

here's what you need to do: hit run on the start menu and enter the following in order

regsvr32 %Systemroot%system32phototoys.dll

viola!

ps. if you've not installed the powertoy in the default installation folder (system32), remember to change the path on the second line accordingly.

I ran into the same problem with PowerToy Image Resizer (WinXPHome, Dell4550 2.5 GHzP4), and also tried what toprak mahsulu said to do, but he apparently left out two critical "".

His instructions: Run
regsvr32 %Systemroot%system32phototoys.dll
What was really needed per http://www.winxptutor.com/imgresizer.htm
regsvr32 %Systemroot%system32phototoys.dll.

What I read in this FAQ list got me headed in the right direction and I appreciate that.

I see the problem here: this editor apparently removes all back slashes!!!! (It leaves forward slashes /, but deletes back slashes that need to be included in this string for this operation).

The item to run needs back slashes where I have inserted underscores:
regsvr32 %Systemroot%_system32_phototoys.dll.

Yes, that is true. when the image in gif is resized the information on the transparency is lost.

Another thing: if an animated gif image is resized, only the first frame will get resized, all other frames will get lost. On rare ocasions, the program will crash when resizing animated gif images is started (this goes for version 0.9).

you can reduce the image size in pixels, this way the image file will have less kilobytes.

No, currently there is no option to reduce the size of the image just by telling the image file size.

Hi,

Whenever I try to do anything at all with a GIF picture, the program freezes, and the only way I can close it is to use the task manager. I click on the GIF tab, then browse to my image, and the instant I click on the image, the program freezes, I never get a chance to do resize, change format, do anything. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but that did not help.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

The only thing I can think of would be that the gif that you're trying to view is a) animated gif or b) corrupted. In that case the program could hang.

I can not think of other reason. Have you tried jpg tab?

I think this error means something like file not found or no data. If you're trying to open the file with Mihov Image Resizer this may mean that you're trying to open a file that has it's name changed and the name that is displayed in the file list is not valid anymore.
The other option would be that your file name consists of some characters that may be invalid in your OS charset or in the program... Try ranaming the files and see if the error still appears.

Hope this helps!

Miha.

Y cuando creo que por fin logre insertar el campo, al tratar de asignarlo a un componente TImage se produce el siguiente error: "JPEG error #41". la verdad no se a que se refiere, no se si la imagen que ya logre insertar en la Base de Datos es realmente una imagen tipo BLOB se habr guardado como BMP.

Espero que alguien me pueda ayudar.

The assumption that a user would only want to resize an image using the "biggest" size is incorrect. I had a situation where a bunch of images all had the same height but different widths and I wanted to change their height to something a little smaller. this program does not allow for that!! You need to add a checkbox that asks if the user wants to treat the value entered as the new width OR the new height.

Thanks!

You are right. I have made a special version for a guy that needed that; however, this is not very common. I wanted and still want to keep the program as simple to use to ANY user, that is why I try not to add features that could confuse or even scare away less experienced users.

Any way I could have a copy of that version? I would put it as a checkbox right next to the size that says "The default is to use the width, check here to use the height." That seems easy enough for someone to understand.
