Is there any way to move a graphics program on a Flash Drive? I do alot of travelling, and many times I shoot images. I'd like to pop into an internet cafe and email or upload them. But I'd like to re-size them first. Many internet cafes don't have any graphics programs, which is why I want to have one on my flash drive.

I got Roxio Photosuite (on CD), but whenever I download, it automatically downloads to the harddrive. I cannot instruct it to download on the Flash Drive.

Any ideas, or a different (and hopefully free) program I can use on my Flash Drive?

Thanks in advance.

You can load Irfanview on a flash drive.
It's Free. :thumbsup:

This is from the FAQ's page:

Q: Is there a portable IrfanView version (for USB sticks, CDs etc.)?
A: Yes, EVERY IrfanView version is portable. You can:
1. Copy your existing/installed IrfanView folder to USB stick (recommended), or
2. Use the normal installer and install IrfanView to an USB stick folder, or
3. Use the ZIP version and unzip to an USB stick folder.


You'll be able to do a lot more than, re-size your images. :flowers:
Also if you're re-sizing your images to decrease file size, for E-mailing, you'll also have the option of slightly reducing the image quality.
The will reduce the file size considerably more, than re-sizing, with barely noticeable quality lose (depending on the level of quality reduction).
There's a how-to tutorial, here:

You're quite welcome, tonytv.
Glad to help.

Falu,
Can't say for sure, but Irfanview installed, as shown in my Program Files, is listed at 8.55 MB, and that's with all of the plug-ins, installed.

Hi tg1911,

Checking my list of programs I saw it was 1,6 Mb but wasn't sure about the plug-ins, since they're not listed separately.

From your info I understand I've to check for some plug-ins. :thumbsup:

Thanks.

You're welcome, Falu.
On the Plug-in page, I installed the first option (1. You can download ALL PlugIns as one large EXE (recommended)), which includes all plug-ins.

Thanks tg1911,

Have done so and decided to:

- concentrate on Irfanview for at least the coming year in this respect;
- donate to Irfan so he/she will continue to work on the program.

In short: thanks!! :thumbsup:

You're quite welcome, Falu.
There are several Irfanview tuts in the Mini guides and how-tos - Simple answers to common questions forum, in the Images, Image Editing, Image Viewing Mini-Guides sub-forum.
Irfanview is the first image editing program I ever used, and never found a need to try anything else.
Does all I want, and then some. :thumbsup:
