Have you ever wanted to zoom in on a picture to look at the details a little closer or has someone posted a picture that blows out all the margins on the forum page and you wish you could make it smaller? Well this little program will do both. It's called IE Zoomer. All you have to do is right click on a picture and select "IE Zoom in" or "IE Zoom out" numurous times.
Also can open in the program to minipulate the image.
IE Zoomer lets you enlarge small images for a better look while surfing the Web. It maintains the aspect ratio, and uses resampling technology to improve the appearance of the enlarged image. Just right-click an image on a web page, and you'll see the option in the context menu. It also lets you stretch, rotate, and otherwise modify an image before saving it as wallpaper, and you can either center or tile the image.
IE Zoomer is also a utility for users of Internet Explorer, it integrates with the browser to add zoom capabilities to any image. This feature is specially handy when viewing small images on the web as most sites will use the small images to speed up loading of their web pages. IE Zoomer is different from the Microsoft Web Accessories (a utility that also adds zoom capabilities to images in Internet Explorer). Images zoomed with IE Zoomer will be smoother and more natural looking than the images zoomed with the Microsoft utility.
IE Zoomer includes a standalone version of the program that you can use to resize an image. This is the part of the program that I use most often to work with BMP, GIF, PNG, or JPG files. I find it very useful for resizing images for posting on forums without losing a lot of detail. The JPG file format also lets you set a quality setting for saving the image, the higher the quality, the more disk space it is going to use.
The original intent of the program was to stretch, shrink, rotate or invert images from the web to be used as wallpaper, but I found images zoomed or downsized with IE Zoomer to be smoother and more natural looking than other utilities without getting into a full blown graphics program. The interface is very easy to use and intuitive.
