iResizer Review 2.0
Not everyone who wants to edit an image is proficient in the expensive graphics editing programs, or even has the money to shell out for those products. Enter iResizer, a product with the singular goal of allowing you to resize pictures and even elements within those images, without distorting the photo or the background. It's a novel concept that allows you to perfect photos where balance, closeness and even an unwanted photobomber might be an issue.
iResizer provides this function by allowing you to select a specific element, be it a person, family pet or something else, from your photos. You can then resize -- or remove -- that element from your photo. According to the official website, iResizer allows you to achieve three main goals:
- Resizing elements separately from the background
- Removing space between objects
- Removing objects or people from your photos
Some might see iResizer as a digital tool for removing an ex-wife from a photo, but we like to think of it as a tool that even amateur photographers can use with ease. Subjects too close or too far from the camera will no longer permanently ruin a photo. Plus, resizing elements allows you to change an image's height to width ratio without distorting the overall image. We can't help but think that this is ideal for altering downloaded wallpapers to better fit your computer monitor or smartphone screen.
It's not often that software manufacturers advertise photo editing software specifically toward people who aren't artistically inclined, and we think that the folks behind iResizer might be on to something, here. iResizer isn't perfect, however. If you remove an object, you might have to worry about its reflection or shadow remaining in the picture.
Still, if you're interested, you can download a free trial for either your Mac (OS X 10.6 and higher, Intel CPU) or Windows (XP or later) computer, to see if iResizer is the type of program that will benefit you. Because it only requires 256MB RAM and costs a fraction of what other editors are selling for, iResizer might be ideal on older computers.
