If one is to be a photograher - I would recommend Adobe Photoshop and get it in a hurry - the next upgrayed could be worse than the last. Most of the upgrades have been more like rearangements rather than something we can actually use to improve upon ourselves. Within Photoshop there are several ways to alter the image size, beyond cropping, the Image Size command is the best, you can also scale the image under the Edit - Transform, Scale. I'm no math whiz - so I do a lot of resizing on the fly - going with the visual rather than the math - I let Photoshop drive the math behind it. In the print world resolution is key to our market - maintain a 300 dpi resolution is important and I love to hold images to the 350 dpi that my Sony Alpha makes the native default for my images - and my scanner can blaze up to 1200 dpi - the end results are hardly noticable to most clients and general public viewing - but I can tell the difference so I go with the difference. If you can get ride of Microsoft products move over to Apple and or Adobe products - much safer and far more reliable. Bill Gates makes me want to throw up... Oh and that Facebook creap - that's another one that needs to be resized. Sorry - got off on a tangent.
Well... If Microsoft is bent on spying on you, they don't need photo software to do so... And for a lightweight software I don't think there's anything that tops the free programs in Windows.
