Its one of those annoying programs which opens its windows on the desktop.

By open on the desktop I mean "open on the desktop" - most PC programs open a 'master' window, and all child windows open inside it - so if you minimize the main window they all minimize.
Here they stay on the desktop, and it can be be annoying to untangle them when you have 20 other windows open (like me).
The program is a bit primitive, i think it is missing some needed features (like keyboard shortcuts, and being able to drop a picture on it etc) - but it seems to work as advertised :)

Who makes this? This is a standard plugin for any self respecting image editing program. Who needs it?

sco50000 on 2007-09-24 20:00

that's exactly what i was thinking

it's just a stand-alone plug-in

FotoSketcher would be a better choice. It's free, standalone, portable, have batch processing as well, and the results are actually really good. You can also choose color pencils, oil, etc.

And an example:
http://fotosketcher.jalbum.net/FotoSketcher%20gallery/slides/FotoSketcher%20-%20window.html

There are issues and one of them is that it only saves preset and they are all separate so it's a pain if there is a setting you always want to open up instantly to. Also, it always add a fake picture frame to the image so remember to disable that each time when you don't need it.

Fast Image Resizer v0.98 Updated

Checker on 4 Aug 2014
  • 660KB (uncompressed)

This is a small drag&drop tool to quickly resize a bunch of pictures to JPEG. The quality settings are configurable and EXIF data can be copied. It works with different image format (as source) and performs an automatic cropping too.


Note: The license companion text file and the author's webpage do not mention any kind of known end-user agreement. This Software is a "Project" which likely will become payware.

A good alternative software that, while not as simple, doesn't require the MSVBVM60.DLL file: http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=208

This is very handy when dedicated to a process you do often-emailing pictures for instance.I have FastStone too (which is great) but with Fast Image Resizer you can just drag a picture onto its desktop shortcut.If you want,it'll clean off the exif data too.

Quite a nice an useful piece of software.
Drawback is, it crashes if about 200 images are opened simultanously...

Onesimus Prime on 2009-01-14 17:50

Apparently, it was updated to 0.7.5 beta, then the website disappeared. You can get the most recent version from:

Ok, so the author's website seems to be working again. Sorry! At least you've got an alternate download link now.

A fairly basic processing tool, the very slick gallery creation tool is the real gem in this program. The only setback for this program is competition: many other tools on the site do batch conversion, renaming, and other functions better than MobaPhoto (among them Photoscape and FastStone Image Viewer). Still, the program has a great interface, is good for basic photography work, and very easy to use.
