One-trick ponies need to do their trick well. This one is no good at all except at the preset aspect ratios (unless you like surrealist montages). With the preset aspect ratios sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Not worth $20, maybe worth $10 if you want to fool around. One of the images I tested it with is searchable at Google Images using "corinne winters traviata ft.com", the very first image. With the main figure masked, it’s OK at 16:9 and 1:1, not at the other presets. Try 800x200 for a bizarre result. Cosmetic flaw: you can’t see more than 2 1/2 digits in the image size dialog! An obvious flaw.

I downloaded the trial version and found it to be useless. I tried two different pictures with iResizer and part of the image protected by the mask would get distorted in both images. I do this kind of thing in Photoshop on a regular basis without problems. Waste of $10 if you buy it.

I don't agree. What you have to do in Photoshop step by step, manualy, this program does it with one click. Just for try, I covered a car with red, and applied the change. On the place were was the car, the empty place was perfectly and logicly filled in by the landscape. You can't do that with Photoshop, unless you take your time and a lot of actions.

The claim of "Without distortion" seems to be contradicted by the screensnaps. The background is clearly horizontally stretched.

I assume, I can't verify, what they are saying is you can isolate parts of the image to not distort whilst the rest is, in this case it is the skier that is not stretched.

I've downloaded and used this programme today, 2nd July '13.
It really is flawless in operation, succeeding in changing the aspect ratio of a picture without any distortion, exactly as claimed.
Also, its ability to remove objects is perfect. I've used InPaint for several years, but iResizer is much quicker and more accurate.

I'm used to cropping many of my photos to give greater emphasis to the subject, but this often loses useful background. iSizer manages to retain the detail in the background as well as emphasising the subject – an amazing achievement.

Excellent value at $10; I'm sure it will prove to be an invaluable tool which I'll be reaching for all the time. In fact, I'm sorry I didn't find it long ago.

Now why am I looking at this review and thinking Hmmmmm....

The only thing that could possibly make me think this wasn't from the developer themselves is the misspelling of the product name. But having spent time with developers, that actually convinces me IT IS an insider review!

Yes Rubaiyat, I suppose my enthusiasm could be seen that way, in which case it would be rather obviously 'over the top'.
No, I'm a retired airline pilot who lives for his Mac, and his Daimler SP250 classic car, and love things that work really well (mind you the 53 year-old Daimler was built in days before ergonomic design was a priority!).
It's not often I submit a review, but this programme does just what I need, and very well, so I'm happy to give credit where it's due.

Good I'll take your word for that. :)

I noted it was the first and only comment as well under that moniker, which raised my eyebrow as well. That and the perfect score. I've never yet seen a perfect app in the long time I have worked on computers.

Sorry, this is not actually relevant, Lorimer, but I was interested to hear you own a Daimler SP250. We also had one and we rather wish we still had it. It would now be worth a lot more than what we sold it for. We did actually see it on TradeMe some years ago but I can't remember what it fetched.

Where do I put the serial number at? I have searched everywhere inside the app as well as uninstalled and downloaded and reinstalled several times but still can not find where to put the serial number I was sent.

I had no issue finding where to put the serial number for Inpaint.

Scale an image without changing important visual content such as people, buildings, animals, etc. While normal resizing affects all pixels uniformly when scaling an image, iResizer resizing mostly affects pixels in areas that do not have important visual content.

iResizer lets you shrinking or enlarging images to improve a composition, fit a layout, or change the orientation.

iResizer is a handy way to resizing images non uniformly while preserving the key features of the picture. iResizer avoiding distortion of the important parts of the image. It also can be used to remove portion ot the image in a consistent way. For example, you can turn a landscape picture into a square picture and close up the space between people in a image if they are a long way apart. It also works in reverse and you can use it to make an photo larger.

You can mark important elements in the image using green marker, this technique is handy if you have areas of the image that you want to retain at the expense of other areas and it can also be used to protect people in the image. Also you can use red marker to select which features of the image should be discarded.
