Shrink Pic is completely free to use. If you just need it for your own personal use, or even running it in an Internet Cafe, you can download Shrink Pic for free.
We just released Shrink Pic 1.5, which now also supports Vista Mail. If you've been using Shrink Pic on Windows XP and can't use it after moving to Vista Mail, this upgrade is for you! Also included in this version is the ability to control JPEG compression quality. This value determines the trade-off between size and image quality. Setting it to 0 would produce very poor images, but also tiny (about 10Kbyte). Setting it to 100 would produce excellent photos, but too large. The default value is 85, yielding good photo quality and small sizes.
