Easiest program to resize images?

I use PhotoShop for all my image resizing but my parents are looking for a way to do it and PS will be too complicated for them... Is there a simple program that just resizes images? I heard that MS has one but I don't know the name.

A little off topic but thanks

MS Paint can do it but the quality won't be as good as Photoshop. But it's easy.... and it's a standard windows feature.....

Many choices for this.

The easiest, for those with Windows XP, is to use Explorer, right click on the file(s), choose send via email, and choose the option to resize. The result will be an email created with resized attachments which can be saved.

Otherwise:

Photoshop Elements, MS Office Picture Manager, MS Photo Editor.

If this list is not good enough, send me an email or PM

Yes, ms has one. Its called Image Resizer and is a PowerToy for Windows XP. If i remember correctly, the URL is www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads. Go to the Windows XP Power Toys section and on the right click and download the Image Resizer Power Toy. After you install it, you will be able to right-click any image and select Resize. I've used it for years.

EasyTHumbnails

Download Easy Thumbnails from download.com. It is free and can resize pictures in bulk. I have used it for years.

Windows XP Powertoys is a good way to go if they're on XP.
