    A year or so ago, someone on this site posted instructions to download a photo resizing program, downloadable from Microsoft I used it many times and it worked great. It was one of the Power toy series MC put out.Now I.ve changed computers and cant find this prog on the MC website. Does anyone still have this info? I need the download for Windows VISTA.--Thanks in advance for any help. Jaack M.

    A Vista power toy has been released for Tweak called TweakVI. Some of the others are still in script evaluation. I wasn't told which ones but I was told that not all of the XP toys will be re-released for Vista or Windows 7.

    Wireguy, that is an XP power toy. The poster is looking for a Vista version.

    OK Carol and wireguy. Thanks for the info. Hope they do bring this out for Vista. I don' like Vista that much, but that's what the new laptop came with, so I'm trying to learn it. Thanks again==Jack M.

    Just for the heck of it, try running the XP power toy resizer on Vista and see what happens. You can dump the install if it doesn't work.

    Here's a free program that may do what you want. It will work in XP AND Vista.

    John, It is not a task for beginners, so if you decide to load XP on your machine, make a backup IMAGE before doing anything. You can run XP alongside Vista in a dual boot, replace Vista with XP, or run XP within Vista as a virtual machine. All of the solutions are not a task for a beginner, so be sure to have someone on hand that can walk you through it. I've assumed you have a little experience with computers, but if you had a LOT of experience, it would already be done. :)

    Mash the link for the Windows Live Photo Gallery that runs in Vista. It's from Microsoft and it will size them up or down.
