Yann Kerangueven, the author of CoolTweak asked if I wanted to try a handy piece of software that our site visitors might be interested in. Once I started reading about CoolTweak, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try it out.
For the last couple of years I've been using a program called Faststone Photo Resizer to quickly resize photos for posting to social media or emailing. And I've been very happy with it – until now. CoolTweak is my new favorite [quick] resizing tool.
Installing CoolTweak adds the option to resize photos with a simple right-click action. But that's not all – you can also share your images to social media sites or add your watermark with a right-click action. You even have the ability to modify the output options to customize each right-click action to suit your needs.
So far, I've really enjoyed using CoolTweak. There's only one feature I'd like to see added – the option to dynamically change the size and placement of your watermark image based on the size of the image it's being applied to. Right now, you'd have to create different watermark presets based on specific image sizes or do it manually each time. I've contacted the developer and hope it's a feature he can implement in the near future.
Oh, and here's my recommendation for getting high quality images on Facebook – create a custom preset that uploads images that are 1024 (or 2048) pixels on the long side with a quality setting of 98 or higher. That seems to work really well for Facebook uploads.
