We use digital cameras with high resolution to click and share photographs. Such images are usually high-resolution images of sizes extending to even 10 MB. This size depends on the megapixels supported by your digital camera. Now if you try to mail such images, you may hit a wall, as the mail service may not allow you to send multiple images. Plus you will end up wasting your bandwidth.
We can, of course, use Microsoft Paint application or some third-party freeware for resizing images, which is fine for single images. But if you have several such images, then doing this manually individually might be difficult. That’s where this free tool from TechNet may be able to help you.
