5. Click the “Install” button on the “Image Resizer for Windows-Microsoft Public License” window
6. Click the “Yes” button on the window that says “Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?”
7. Click the “Close” button on the Setup Successful window.

1. Right-click on the pictures you would like to resize
2. Click “Resize Pictures”
