Teorex Press Release
iResizer 2.4 Features Instant Resize of Images for Instagram
TeoreX announces iResizer 2.4, a new version of the image resizing and anti-cropping tool. Implementing an intellectual approach to resizing, the program can remove unwanted objects from a picture or reduce spacing between objects by “folding” the photo using a special algorithm.
Often the only thing that spoils a perfect picture is its sizing. Wrong aspect ratio, too much empty space between objects, non-ideal cropping and so on. iResizer, a cross-platform tool fixes all such issues by applying smart algorithms that virtually “folds” a photo, just like a paper picture, so that unnecessary parts and fragments simply disappear.
With such powerful core inside, iResizer quickly and virtually with no efforts repairs such typical problems. Briefly, a user merely selects objects he wants to preserve their size and aspect, and specifies the desired picture format, size and aspect ratio. The program automatically does all the rest.
With the latest update 2.4, iResizer got even more cool automation. The focal point of the new version is autoresize of photos for Instagram without cropping. Instagram accepts square photos only, and trying to upload hundreds of 4:3 photos can be a pain. With iResizer, a user does the job in two steps: first, mark areas on the photo he wants to preserve, and run Instagram resizing!
Among other changes in the new release are 64-bit support, the new Lasso and Polygonal Lasso selection tools, the ability to subtract an area from selection and many small fixes and enhancements including saving the current image with default settings with a hotkey.
Overall, iResizer is an easy-to-use content aware image resizing tool with low requirements and high potential.
Pricing and availability
iResizer is a free-to-try application. The full version costs $19.99. The program is available for Windows XP or higher and for Max OS X 10.7 or higher.
