Last week, my wife was bugging me to resize some of the pictures that we took from our recent road trips so she can post it on Friendster. I was really busy and didn’t have the time to open Photoshop and do all those work. I could have taught her how to use it but you know how it is with girls… I would end up doing all the work anyway. So I came up with the idea of creating a simple web app that will resize pictures for her. So simple that all she has to do is upload an image file, select the size that she wants and click a button. So I figured, that would only take me half an hour to do. This supposedly half an hour project became a weekend project for me. I saw its potential to become a very useful tool for other people who just want an easy way to resize their pictures. So I added a few more features to the site (yes, it has it’s own domain now) to accomodate other users.
If you’re interested, this tool can be found at http://pixizer.com. It is still in beta so you might find some bugs while you’re using it. If you happened to find bugs or just want to send your feedback, please let me know. I have more plans for this site so check it out often. Who knows, you might end up using this site more than your Photoshop
