iResizer is designed to help you rescale the content of image files by changing the aspect ratio or by removing specific areas of the picture. In addition, it allows you to turn rectangular images into square pictures with full layout preservation, so that you can upload them to Instagram and share the photos with your friends.

The program comes with a simple, but rather tedious interface. The completely dark-colored appearance makes your eyes get tired if you use the utility for a long time. Yet, when editing the pictures, part of the main window is covered by the generous image preview and the visual discomfort decreases. For fast and easy editing, most of the functions are conveniently displayed on the toolbars that encompass the preview on the upper and left sides. The tool supports five of the most popular image formats. Thus, you can load JPEG, JPG, BMP, TIFF, and TIFF format files only – the number is relatively small, considering that the array of image formats is quite extensive.

The strength of this app resides in its ability to remove unwanted areas from photos and bind the remaining parts into a smaller-sized picture layout that looks as natural as possible. In addition, you can adjust the aspect ratio of a photo by changing its width and height parameters without distorting the image appearance. What's more, it allows you to preserve selected elements of a photo at their original dimensions, and resize, for instance, only the background. Thus, you are neither forced to crop the image nor required to reduce the size of an object that you want to keep at its original scale.

The features provided are smart and not often met by other resizing tools. Still, the program lacks advanced retouching options, needed mainly to correct the image that results after removing objects from the source picture.
