VSO Image Resizer was the choice software app on my PC when it came time to (batch) resize and convert photos and images. The only thing I did not like about the FREE version of VSO was the banner that popped up when you used the software. Even though it was a nuisance, VSO Image Resizer was one the best out there. Today I discovered that VSO Image Resizer is now called the Light Image Resizer.
As a result of this transition, I now notice that the banner popup is now non-existent and the ease of access is much improved.
Addendum (5/17/2011) – Developer’s Comment – The startup dialog to remind it is not free will reappear after 3 days, we are doing some experience about user behaviour and we don’t want to bug them at the beginning. in the same time, they can get a free key for the pro version in our facebook page : http://facebook.com/obviousidea
