Sometimes you don’t want to launch Photoshop just for a task as simple as image resizing. For that matter you can use the free online image resizing services. Some of these sites offer only resizing feature, while others go as far as customized cropping and even batch image editing functions.
Give Photoshop a rest and try out any of these 30 photo resizing tools listed as follows, that are perfect for quick photo resizing.
LunaPic is a popular image editor with hundreds of editing tools in its arsenal. Its image resizer is also very good and lets you resize the image using both custom parameters and grab-and-drag feature.
This image resizer is dedicated to resizing images for social media websites, including Facebook, Google, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter. You can also provide a custom size if needed.
As the name suggests, Quick Thumbnail lets you quickly resize, add a filter, and add watermark to a picture and download it. I also really liked its preset resize ratio that was specifically created for different web apps and monitors.
Although its focus is more on compressing images with different types of compression methods, but Toolur also lets you define width and height if the compressed image. It’s support for 25 image bulk processing is handy as well.
Resizr offers a bunch of tools on a single page, including ability resize, crop, add effects, adjust brightness, and sharpen image. I am sure you will really like its handy slider and real-time preview of image that gets updated as you make the changes.
Upload image, select width, select height, and click on “Submit”. Your resized image will be automatically downloaded. This is pretty much it when it comes to this tool’s function. A truly simple image resizer tool.
These online image resizer tools should make it easy to quickly resize images without bloating your PC with Photoshop. I’ll recommend you to go for resizer tools that come with bulk image processing as they will immensely speed up the resize process if you have multiple images.I personally like Bulk Resize Photos and PicGhost, which one of these online photo resizers you like?

Adobe Photoshop is a staple in the graphic design and photo-editing world. Made and published for Windows and macOS, it’s been around since 1988 when digital art was first on the rise. Since it’s beginning, people all over the world have used Photoshop to edit and compose images in Photoshop’s own PSD and PSB file […]
Photoshop has been out on the market for a long time and there isn’t a designer who hasn’t heard about it. That’s a fact. Professionals use it to edit everything, from photos, movies, to anything graphic design related. Undoubtedly, Photoshop is a leader among the editing tools, and rightly so. The multitude of features and options it comes with make it a software for the advanced. Unfortunately, its complexity can be an impossible labyrinth for some, an unpenetrable mystery. For this very reason, we decided to make all your lives easier by putting together a handy list of the best Photoshop alternatives.
We know the hassle that Photoshop comes with, and we know the price. Not only does it need hundreds of hours of practice until you get familiarized with it, but it can also be quite costly for designers at the beginning of their career. Our goal on Webdesignledger is to make designers’ work as enjoyable as possible through accessible resources. Today’s blog post is for those who have been looking for Photoshop alternatives that are easier to use and more affordable. Check these out and choose your favorite:
The reasons we love this tool are quite numerous. We’ll start with our favorite: it’s free. Don’t we all like free quality products? Krita is Photoshop’s younger sister, they look and feel very similar. It’s feature-rich and highly recommended by the people online. We recommend you all to use Krita as a Photoshop alternative because:
it has a ton of cool effects
it offers a multitude of templates on different subjects
you can use it on tablets
Unfortunately, Krita doesn’t keep the history of your edits, nor does it have a camera RAW filter. But these little negatives don’t matter so much when all the other features complement each other so well.
One of the downsides of Photoshop is that you need room for it. You may have to delete stuff on your computer in order to install it. This is where Sumpaint comes into action. This amazing alternative is an online tool which means you can keep everything on your laptop in place. Sumopaint is on our list today because:
it’s super easy to use
it has plenty of features
it offers support for layers and blending modes
3. Multi-Layer (Android)
Edit on the go with your tablet or smartphone with this amazing Photoshop alternative. Multi Layer beats all the other phone tools with its richness of features. Believe it or not, the app offers grit support and even support for blending and layers. Being a free tool, they have to financially support the app through ads which will pop up at times. But even so, we love it for:
Unlike Krita which doesn’t feature a history toolbar, GIMP does! It is also free and that always makes us happy. Plus, what if I told you that it’s able to do almost everything that Photoshop can, sometimes even better? No wonder people recommend it so much online as a Photoshop alternative. It’s easy to work with and we wouldn’t trade it for Photoshop as:
We dare to say that Affinity Photo is better than Photoshop. First, let’s start with the price. Compared to Photoshop, Affinity Photo is so much cheaper! With a one-off payment, you are good to go. Its creators openly affirmed that the aspects Photoshop lacks in, they’ve got it covered. Affinity Photo is among the best on the market, and this is why:
it’s much faster than Photoshop
crashes less than Photoshop
features unlimited undos
This list could not exist without Sketch. The tool is as feature rich as flexible. Although it is a paid software, you get a ton for the price. And that’s due to the numerous community-created plugins you can access anytime to extend its functionality. The only downside to Sketch is its limited platform availability. Unless you are a Mac user you can’t enjoy this amazing tool. But even so, we applaud it for:
its infinite zooming
the ability to build a new graphic with the vector and pencil tool
including color picker, layers, gradients, and style presets
This app is for free. You’ll want to know this little detail when I tell you that it comes with more than 600 effects. Pixlr is that app that you must have on downloaded on your phone for quick edits that actually look good. Crop, resize, whiten teeth if needed, it’s all possible with Pixlr. We added the app to our list due to:
Aviary specializes in basic editing and it does it in style. It’s a super tool for editing images into memes and not only. It’s easy to use, yet full of features. You can edit small details such as blemishes, add stickers, and change the depth of focus. Aviary can be accessed both online and on phones. We mostly like that:
it’s free and the online editor is add free
it comes with a wide range of tools
it’s easy to use
