Resize and crop your images for web use
Today there are innumerable uses for photos and images on the web. Websites need favicon and content images, people need Twitter profile pictures and Facebook profile banners, others want to create custom-sized photos for other uses – the need is endless.
To optimize images for web use, you likely need to resize, crop or change their file format type from the source image for their final use. And to optimize your website for site speed, it is best to not resize large images on the fly, but to use properly sized images in the first place, which are typically smaller.
There are many big, complex image manipulation tools available for such work, but not everyone can afford to buy Photoshop or even figure out how to do such simple tasks in its cluttered, confusing user interface. Finding and learning how to use a big tool’s favicon generator, Facebook profile picture editor, Twitter picture size editor, or even performing a simple photo crop is usually an exercise in frustration. What most people really need is a simple image editor tool for cropping and resizing photos and graphics.
Internet Marketing Ninjas is pleased to offer just such a tool for webmasters, social media fans, and everyone else who wants a simple tool for work with images for the web.
