Web 2.0 Wednesday – Shrink O'Matic

This application sums up what I love about Web 2.0, simple, useful and oh so cute. How can you not want to use an application called Shrink O’Matic. This program has solved a major dilemma for me. If you’re like me you probably have uploaded lots of avatar pictures. It seems that every site wants a different dimension. Usually I open up some photo editing software and start playing (Manipulating graphics is not my area of expertise). Shrink O’Matic has solved this problem for me.

Shrink O’Matic is an Adobe AIR application to easily (batch) resize (shrink) images. It handles JPGs, GIFs and PNGs. Adobe Air is a plug in that allow internet applications to deploy and run on the desktop across operating systems.

Simply drag and drop images and they’ll be resized as you wish! Options allow you to choose the output sizes, names and formats. It really is as simple as the screen shot below indicates. Try and it out and let us know what you think.
