Updates based on your feedback

We have received a lot of valuable feedback from many of you since's relaunch ten days ago! As a result of those excellent suggestions and comments, the following changes are now available:

  • Quick Resize changes: We have added Rotate my picture to the Quick Resize menu, allowing you to optionally rotate your picture 90 degrees clockwise, counterclockwise, or 180 degrees upside down
  • "Remember my settings" feature: Also in the Quick Resize menu, you'll find a Remember my settings for next time checkbox that allows you to save your last quick resize settings. When you return to, your preferences will be automatically loaded in the Quick Resize menu for your next picture
  • Resize Multiple Pictures / Batch Resize fixed: We have fixed a few bugs which should make the Batch Resize feature more stable. You'll also find a more prominent Multiple Pics link from the main page directing you to the Batch Resize feature
  • Minor bug fix:  We have fixed an issue encountered when uploading really large pictures. Uploading large pictures (up to 100MB) should be more stable now
