Automatically reduce the size of photos for email, IM, Facebook
Today’s high resolution digital cameras produce multi Megabyte photos. These are great for printing but cause a heavy burden when sending over the Internet.
Shrink Pic allows you to send dozens of photos as email attachments – quickly and with no effort at all!
All you need to do is install Shrink Pic. It automatically detects when you’re sending large photo files and compresses them in the background. There’s no setup, no operating instructions, nothing, nada. Just send your photos normally and Shrink Pic takes care of shrinking them.
How it works
Shrink Pic runs in the background. It has a taskbar icon which tells you it’s waiting for photos to be sent.
Then, when it detects that you’re sending a large photo, it automatically creates a temporary copy, resizes it and sends it instead. It gives you a notice message, so you’ll know the photo you sent was resized. Of course, the original photo doesn’t change, only the temporary copy.
You can control how Shrink Pic resizes your photos. Select between three automatic resize levels or enter your own custom sizes. Shrink Pic also recognizes rotated photos (portrait layout) and resizes them intelligently, so you don’t need to worry about that too.
Who needs Shrink Pic?
If you like sending photos to your friends and family, Shrink Pic is for you.
Whether you’re a computer geek, or an absolute technophobic, Shrink Pic will make it easier for you to email your photos. And, your friends, receiving your emails will appreciate it when they get nice and compact emails from you that don’t block their inbox.
Shrink Pic works with ‘regular’ email like Outlook Express and also with webmail, such as Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo! mail and others.
Adding photos to a blog is fun.
Shrink Pic will automatically resize your photos so that they fit and take very little storage space. You can upload photos using Internet Explorer, Firefox or Opera. Shrink Pic will detect these uploads and automatically shrink and compresses those photos for you.
Even if you send photo files via your IM application, Shrink Pic will step in and compress those photos for you. A photo that took minutes to send will go in a few seconds.
Shrink Pic runs on Windows 2000 and Windows XP and works with these programs:
* Shrink Pic will also compress photos that you send via Web based email services such as Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail and Gmail.
