Attached below (BFTImageResizerSetup.msi) is a simple program I wrote to resize images appropriately for posts and avatars. It is not fancy; it is not for those who already know to crop, resize, adjust color, etc. If you are running a PC with Windows, it simply allows you to right-click on a picture and resize it.
After it has been downloaded and installed, “right-click” on a picture in Windows Explorer or on your Desktop and you will see an option called “Resize Image for BFT” in the context menu that pops-up.
Click on it and it will let you choose between creating an image 400 pixels wide (for a post) or 150 pixels wide (for an avatar).
After picking one of the options, it will create a copy of the image sized appropriately.
In order for the program to run you must have the .NET Framework installed on your PC. If you are running Vista you already have it. If you are running Windows XP and are regularly installing the updates from Microsoft, then you probably have it. If you don’t know if you have it, try installing the program. If you don’t have it, it will tell you were to get it.
If you find something that should be changed or added, let me know.
