Half a Mb.

Download time.
5 seconds on 256kbps dedicated line.

How to install
After downloading just double click the .exe file and it will be installed in seconds.

Irfanview is also a very usefull tool. Its free and if you download the plugins pack, it can open each and every format you can ever imagine.

Another one is Xnview.

Default Image Rotation

Rotating Image the easiest way
Open your image in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (the default image viewer of Windows)

1. Right click on your image ( i am mentioning this way because many people may have installed picasa or any other image editing soft. So .jpg etc may have been associated with it)

2. Left click Open With and from the menu select Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.

3. Now click the rotate button from the toolbar below. You may get a pop-up that warns " the resolution may decrease etc etc". Just click yes.

4. Walla! You're done.

There are many ways to rotate image but the simplest way is mentioned above.
Please do use it before posting images here in tbhp. Its very impractical to rotate Lappy or tft screen isn't it??

You can use the same re size feature without the application.

Right click on an image file > send to Mail Recipient > Select "Make my pictures smaller"> click on "Show more options" and select the desired size.
After the new email window opens with the attachments, copy the attachment and save it.

Well thats an option but you will not have the desired size. and copying it is an extra process.

I agree that copying pictures will be an extra process and you won't get the desired size but you can still select the options below:

That option will not be visible in all version of windows or if you have not installed a pop email client like outlook. In short its impractical.

I would have to disagree with you on that, all versions of Windows come with an inbuilt email client.
Win 98 and XP came with Outlook Express
Windows Vista came with Windows Mail
And Windows 7 now apparently comes with Windows Live Mail

BTW, I have installed the app you mentioned and I found it to be really neat.
