Images from a digital camera are too big to share casually – you’ll quickly clog up an e-mail recipient’s inbox. Here’s a nifty free utility to help you reduce the size of your photos.

After you install it, right-click on a photo in My Pictures and click on Resize Pictures. You’ll be able to create a copy of the original in the same folder, reduced to a better size for sharing – 800×600 or 1024×768, say. Simple, but sometimes it’s just what you need.

Never download free utilities! Shame on you for even considering it.

Okay, now that you’re on full alert, you have my permission to install this one if you promise to be careful next time. This is one of Microsoft’s PowerToys, officially unsupported but generally stable.
