Why is Resizing Photos Important ?

We will explore the question of the importance of resizing photos for the web and a few reasons to do so.

It is not uncommon to find Digital Cameras which are capable of taking a 16 megapixel images and some like the Canon EOS 5DS is capable of taking up to 50.6 megapixel photos. These all translate into pictures which contains greater details than ever before. There are discussions as to how many megapixels our eyes can see but since our eyes are not cameras, that number can range anything from 5 to 576 megapixels. What our eyes can see is another discussion we would not get into as we are no scientists.

Our Software works with Windows 10

As you may know, Microsoft is going to launch Windows 10 on July 29th 2015 and it is going to be a major event as it will be rolled out free to the majority of the existing Windows 7 and 8 users.

Over the last several months, Microsoft have released the public beta of Windows 10 and we have been testing our application on that platform and over the last several months made several minor refinements to support Windows 10 on day 1.

We are pleased to say that all our current offering works without issue. If you are using an older version of our applications, please do get the latest updates and be ready for Windows 10.

We cannot guarantee support for other versions of our applications as we no longer support them.

You wouldn’t want to have to wait several minutes to view a picture on the ultra-expensive LTE mobile data line so file size is essential.

Batch TIFF & PDF Converter for the Mac on the way

We have been busy behind the scene working on a brand new Mac App which builds on the various TIFF and PDF Apps that we currently have available in the Mac AppStore. This new app should be available next month and would model around Batch TIFF Resizer which will bring you support for working multi-page TIFF, PDF, PNG and JPEG Files format.

The application will provide you with an all-inclusive application to merge, extract, rearrange pages with TIFF and PDF files. It also comes with other nifty support to add text captions to the TIFF, PDF, PNG and JPEG files. It also features function to resize pages and other features which makes Batch TIFF Resizer where it is today.

Here are some of the basic screenshots
