Hi!
I heard about the new power toys for Windows XP and wanted to install the Image Resizer. I downloaded it and then installed it but I can't find the program anywhere. All I can do is re-install or Modify/Repair the program. Ran Search and Add/Remove Programs to locate the .exe file and nothing comes up except the downloaded Install Program. I have an HP Notebook, Windows XP Home, Intell Pentium 2.4 Gig, 512 Memory. Any suggestions?

Once it is installed if you right click on a .jpg or a .gif file stored on your hard drive you will be given an option to resize the image.

Are you right clicking on an image in a web page or an actual image file stored in your computer? Using my computer or windows explorer navigate to a saved .gif or .jpg file and right click on it. You dont see an option for Resize Image?

I am clicking an actual picture file with the JPEG format stored on my hard drive. I heard this program will quickly resize a picture so you can email it.

OK...I will try this from another computer and let you know how it works out for me in an hour or so. Have you rebooted? Not sure if that makes a difference but ya never know

I was just thinking, do I have install all the Power Toys for this one Toy to work? I didn't see anything to suggest that and also the Imager Resizer had its own Install application. Whe I do right click I get all the other options to choose, such as edit, rename, scan, propeties, etc..

Reboot didn't work. Maybe I'll just have to use my photo program to do my resizing. Thought this would fit the bill.

Uninstall it and reinstall it again. I really can not see why this should not be working.

If that doesnt work you can try this program :

Thanks for all your help. I got onto the Windows Community Newsgroup board and found out that I was missing a .DLL file. I was given this file to add to my registry and now the Resize Image Utility works. If anyone else has this same problem, here is the registry entry that worked for me.

REGSVR32 SHIMGVW.DLL

Have a great day!! :thumbsup:
