Press Release Launching shrinkpictures.com
29 Oct 2005
Afther the sucess of the initial release to Tipmonkies, we put together a new release and it was posted at PRWEB
This new website http://www.shrinkpictures.com provides a simple interface so you can resize images or photo's. There is no need to learn how to use a complicated or expensive program - simply follow the instructions, fill in the form and a few seconds later, you can save the resized image.
The website can work with gif, jpg and png source images.
There are several uses of this website from taking a photo from your digital camera and shrinking it down before sending the picture in email - making the picture smaller will be much faster to send in email, especially if you are sending several pictures at once. The advantage of a web based tool is that you do not need to worry about having your image processing software on your computer - you can use this from anywhere with an internet connection. Lets say, you are on holidays or interstate working and take some pictures with your Digital Camera. The pictures may be over 1Meg in size. So before sending these pictures off in an email, simply resize them first.
Of course, anyone who visits online Forums will know that people personalise their online identity with a small picture called an avatar. Not everyone knows how to take a picture or photo and shrink it down so they can use it as their own unique avatar. This is a valuable tool that will provide that function for all forum owners!
The tools not only resize images, but optionally, you can apply an image filter to convert your image to either Greyscale or Sepia.
The output image is a jpg, and as an added bonus, you can select from 3 different output qualities. By selecting a lower quality, most pictures will still be quite ok to view on a computer screen, but they will result in a much smaller processed image.
By utilising these tools, the blogger can take a photo, shrink it to a size that will fit on their blog/website and of course select a suitable quality so that their site visitors are only downloading a small file - making their web page quicker and of course saving on bandwidth.
Added additional Features
26 Oct 2005
After a few requests, we added the option to allow the user to select a custom size for their images. Additional resources showing how to link to us were added.

Looking for another simple website to resize your images? Then check out Shrink Pictures. Using the site is very straightforward. Simply select the new size and submit a picture and it will resize it to whatever option you choose. It is a really simple thing to use and rather than having to load up your image software, you have easy access to this tool online. Additionally, there are a couple of special effects you can apply to a picture - you can change any picture to greyscale or sepia. Shrink Pictures is totally free, of course
