This is just a comment on iZoom. I think over all, this is a great applicant and is exceedingly easy to use. HOWEVER, I believe iZoom has a serious memory leak as it tends to suck up all the free RAM that I've got (I have 1gig. of Ram in my Mac Digital Audio G4). Anyone else experincing this problem?

This app is about trimming pictures, not simply for size but the same time allowing to give the picture motive more focus. Given the wealth of graphic applications out there, I find it striking that AFAIK iZoom is the first to offer such trimming in this obvious and easy to use way. (And sorry, I don't see how SmallImage would do anything in that area at all.)

I rate Stability "2" for now, since Java makes iZoom performance very sluggish after trimming some pictures.

Why didn't Apple think of this obvious, and most useful zoom for pictures and saved sites in, say, Jaguar, Panther, Tiger, Ocelot, Puma, or any other useful and everyday Apple feature?

This application is useful, easy to install and use, and an obvious "invention"..One wonders why we haven't had it before.
Download it and enjoy it---you will be happy. It's also worth a few extra dollars to reward the author for his most useful and practical tool.

Great iphoto tool! now you can maintain photo size and cut the kb's with the *export quality slider* for quick email downloads of pictures to friends without fast internet access. Also low kb pictures (2 or 3 on export quality slider) can be dragged into ichat text for quick viewing during chats.

Elegant interface, extremely useful.

Older relative with worsening eyesight can now easily crop and export his own photos thanks to iZoom.

Simple. Powerful. Elegant. Useful. DONATE.

It won't open a file larger than 640x480 which limits the usefulness of this application. A readme or help file providing some info might be a good idea.

Well, it does open larger files...I apologize for the incorrect feedback I gave yesterday when I could not open anything larger than 640x480. I think I may have tested it without copying it to my hard drive and maybe that caused the problem. Sorry about that.

Similar to Thumbs Up, which also does batch processing but does not have the resize feature which iZoom has.

At first I experienced the same problem opening large pictures. Make sure to copy the iZoom application to a hard drive instead of keeping it on the desktop. I wasn't able to open large pics until I did that.


It would be great if you could save a custom size and if the export sizes included standard photo sizes (e.g. 6 inch by 4 inch).

Great app!

rberry88 had trouble on 12 Dec 2004
The defaul Desktop Wallpaper setting is 1024x768 but my laptop is 1280x854 and my iMac is 1440x900 which it won't let me change it to in the custom size box. It won't let you resize a desktop background to anything bigger than 1024x768.
This should be fixed since many people, especially Mac users, like something bigger than 1024x768, IMHO.
