Teorex Press Release
Aspect Ratio Presets in iResizer 2.5 Promote Cropless Pre-Print Adjustment
TeoreX releases a new version of its intelligent resizing utility iResizer 2.5. The update brings built-in aspect ratio presets for easier conversion of images to printer-friendly formats, optimized memory usage and a number of usability improvements.
Historically, print formats and aspect ratios are different from those of a typical digital camera. Printing 11x14 or 5x7 photos from a standard 4:3 or 3:2 often means painful cropping of a picture. iResizer, this small yet capable utility, saves the day when it comes to changing the aspect ratio of a photo to make it fit standard paper sizes.
A user now can select a destination aspect ratio preset, click a button and watch the photo size magically (read: croplessly) changes while all crucial objects on the photo stay intact. How is that? The key is a special algorithm iResizer applies. Technically, this looks as follows. A user selects zones on the image he wants to preserve their size and aspect, and specifies the desired picture format, size and aspect ratio. The program automatically does the rest.
Version 2.5 also brings a lot of other improvements: the support for HiDPI and Retina displays, optimized memory usage for higher performance, aforementioned aspect ratio presets and a bunch of GUI fixes.
"Printing digital photos from an SLR camera always meant sacrifices", - tells Max Gapchenko, CEO at TeoreX. "With iResizer you can finally stop worrying about an aspect ratio, and start enjoying the process!"

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.
