I am totally into image manipulation (especially batch) so I immediately downloaded and tested today's promotion (my usual thanks to GOTD + developer of the day)... Here is my feedback:
Plenty of -more or less comparable- freeware (FastStone Photo Resizer, Fast Image Resizer, IrfanView, Photoscape, Xnview... etc.) available, so lots of aggressive competitors for AnyPic Soft!
I knew were to look (since I have been testing a few titles in the past days... Yes, that's nice for you too!) so my test took relatively short time to complete.
I will (intentionally) not enter into specific details as results following to image manipulation are bound to a pretty vast array of factors and while one can be pleased by the pure visual aspect, others might be more focused on the technical side or the printing quality or the individual file size... So I will simply express my opinion of today's promoted software in relation to the other applications that I have been testing.
General consideration about this jack of all trades but master of none:
- Overall a nice (not much difference to be noticed when changing skin) and intuitive interface
- Plenty of useful features, but pretty much the same that can be found also in most freeware... I am puzzled therefore about the almost 15 MB of footprint!
- Acceptable processing speed
- Quality of manipulated images is not showing much difference from the one obtained with other (free) programs
Six tasks available in the GUI... And my concise comments and scores (to avoid misunderstandings, 10/10 is the max):
Formats: Several supported formats to convert to (Jpeg, Bmp, Png, Pdf, Tga, Tiff, Psd and Gif) 7/10
Resize: 8/10 (see more elaborated comment at the bottom)
Watermark: Quite good 9/10
Rename: Pretty basic (for example "DATE" will only add current system date and NOT file creation date, which would have been handy especially for pics) 6/10
Corrections: Standard (missing gamma) 6/10
Border: Very basic (missing masks/frames) 5/10
My comment about "Resize":
I definitely miss the "Keep Original Format" option.
Assuming that I have a folder containing multiple png, jpg, bmp files and I want to batch resize them all to a specific size (or batch rename them all to a specific name) without the "Keep Original Format" option during the resize/rename process, the format of some of the files will unavoidably change, whereas if that (useful) option would have been available I could just batch resize/rename all my images without having to affect the file formats... And consequently their file size (don't forget that the same jpg -an average one- converted into a bmp can be 10 times larger in size!) and other important intrinsic features!
Definitely a keeper for all those with basic needs... But (sorry) I fail to see why the "pro" attribute was added to the name (Image Resizer Pro).
Lastly, please remember that the way a person sees or perceive a thing (whether it is a software or a sunset) it is very individual, so my advice to all readers is to take a closer look at the various features of this application (by personally experimenting all available tasks/functions) and -you never know- you might discover that my conclusions do not necessarily reflect yours and it might very well be that this program suits perfectly your current needs.
Hopefully this concluding paragraph will prevent some of the replies I have noticed in other occasions, which are filled with expressions of disagreement (and utterly useless polemics).... Bottom line that's my opinion bearing in mind what the other currently available programs offer and in relation to my current needs and requirements... If some of you don't see it that way there no need to raise an issue here on the GOTD thread... Let's keep it as pleasant as possible for all readers ;)
Hope this was useful reading.
Does what it says OK but little more.
It Works very quickly and the results look very good so full marks for ability, AND it is very easy to use so no deep learning curve.
I cannot really see the point of lots of tiny programs for individual jobs, tho. Glad to see that it does support RAW.
Pretty sure Irfanview does this. Photobie DEF does and I think Photoscape does, too. All of the progs mentioned come close to professional offerings (ESP photobie) AND ARE ALL FREE so this one doesn't have a place for me.
Just use FastStone Image Resizer - free all the time, awesome piece of kit!
I decided to give this program a test run, but I don´t like all those programs on my PC there is only able to do 1-2 functions. That will give me 100x 12MB for the functions that Paint.Net have and that is far too much...
- Yes, I did use Paint.Net to compare with and the result was better than I had ever expected.
- I took a picture there is 255x321 pixel and asked the program to make it 4 times that size, 1020x1284 pixel.
- I used the very sensitive format JPEG, because other format like BMP wouldn´t show the real quality of the program. But JPEG or BMP, you get the same result in this program.
- I did apply all kind of best quality in both programs and the best program for this task is AnyPic Image Resizer Pro.
Why is it better ?
Simple - It make a sharp and clean picture were you can see the person as you actually stayed in front of the person in real time.
The watermark function can be used with text and picture at the same time. Overall this program do what it says, but the price of $30 is $15 too much...
AnyPic Image Resizer Pro seems nice, & using the command line ImageMagick code [ http://goo.gl/MgTR ] it does a nice enough job. Intended more for batch resizing [reducing] a collection of images for a web page, e-mail etc. it includes 16 output profiles & you can create & save your own. While it lets you set Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, & Sharpen/Blur, it doesn't have the auto correction features you often see in many free & low cost apps, for example the software that comes with your camera or printer. Image Resizer Pro also lets on it's more for casual use by leaving out some controls/settings for saving to .gif, .png, & jpg formats [e.g. GIF palettes, any transparency etc.] -- that makes it a bit less confusing & so easier to use, but it also means that many more serious users won't like or use it. Basic Watermarking & File Renaming features are included, & you can add plain, colored borders if you want.
The program folder for AnyPic Image Resizer Pro holds 15 files, 2 folders, & takes up ~ 17 MB -- using the PortableApps.com AppCompactor [default settings] brought that down to ~6 MB if that matters to you. Profiles are stored in a new folder that's added under User App/Application Data with 42 files in 4 folders taking up ~164 KB on a hdd [FWIW there doesn't seem to be any way to relocate that folder into the program's folder]. Setup adds an uninstall key to the registry plus an empty key for the app itself.
There are an enormous number of apps & web sites that will handle image resizing &/or format conversions -- type something like "software to resize images for the web" into Google & you'll get 20+ million hits -- & most all of them use basically the same methods/algorithms to get the job done: Bilinear [faster & maybe better for shrinking] &/or Bicubic [slower & better for enlarging]... those are the 2 choices today's GOTD gives you. As you'd guess with so many apps &/or sites doing pretty much the very same thing, you might see added features & different interface designs, but not likely much of a difference when it comes to results. With image resizing methods & code so widely available, creating an app (or site) to resize images is easier/faster than many other kinds of projects, so there's less to lose if you don't do well against a very large number of competitors using the same basic code to do the same basic thing. In fact IMHO it often comes down to who grabs the most attention since most people won't bother trying to compare every similar app out there when there are dozens, maybe hundreds to chose from -- look at the recurring *Not Another One* reactions when GOTD has a video convertor. ;-) Portableapps.com has a half dozen or so apps under the Graphics & Pictures heading [here http://goo.gl/ZUBZ ] that will do batch resizing & often more, All will run with or without the portableapps.com launcher, All will work from a hard drive as well as USB devices, & most apps on portableapps.com are based on regular, non-portable apps, meaning if you find something you like, you can always go get the regular version.
FWIW... You will occasionally see other methods besides the more-or-less std. Bilinear & Bicubic that can give a quality boost in some (but not all) situations -- short article on image interpolation http://goo.gl/u6vsZ ; Wikipedia on Image Scaling http://goo.gl/egq77 ; info on Avisynth resizers http://goo.gl/h5MbO ; Avisynth resizing filters image comparison http://goo.gl/nNMj6 . There are also some fractal-based apps & plug-ins available that may do better enlarging, but despite being around for years, this kind of enlarging is still not common or widespread.
