Tools for working with images

Some image related operations are so common and so simple that you should not require a full fledged image editor for carrying them out. Shell Tools has kept this in mind and has included some basic image operations like resizing the images. You will find it really very useful when resizing large images captured using your smartphone or action cameras.


Shell Tools is a very carefully selected set of tools that cater to the needs for common Windows users. They have added some basic and frequently used tools for files, folders, images and fonts. And if you do not need any of these, then you can disable them from the Shell Tools settings. It worked without any glitches when we used it on our Windows 10 system.
