I have been using the Picture Resizer powertool for over a year and it has
worked great. All of a sudden it has quit working. I have uninstalled and
reinstalled it several times with a new copy of the program downloaded from
Microsoft. The program menu shows up when I right click a picture and it
appears to work when you click OK but nothing happens. I have searched the
hard drive to see if it is putting the new picture in another directory but
it is not. It is simply not creating the new, resized picture. I would
appreciate any advice/help that anyone can offer.

I discovered by accident..if you right-click an image and select "Preview"
you can then resize that image.

QSmith,

See if this command fixes the problem. From Start, Run:

regsvr32 shimgvw.dll

You're welcome. That command-line sets the "image" type flag for image
files. Plus, fixes many other related issues.

It's exactly like the above post, nothing appears. It does work, however if
I click "Preview" first and THEN try resize (on the preview image).
How do you register a dll?

Thanks.. I should have realised that... I did it, but I still have to go
to the preview to get the menu. I wonder if recent Microsoft Updates has
caused this? I'm up to date so have no idea which one, if it is that.

Hi Peter,

FWIW, I have WinXP Pro SP2 with all update and Resize Pictures appears
in the right click context menu.

Peter,

Apart from file association settings, I don't know what's causing this. BTW,
which filetype is causing this, and is WPFV the default handler for that
type?

See if resetting the default handler to WPFV helps.

- Open Control Panel, Folder Options applet
- Click the File Types tab
- Scroll down and select the file type from the list.
- Click the Restore button at the bottom

I appreciate your help Ramesh. It's not too inconvenient I suppose to go
the preview route, but I was just lucky discovering that. It worked
directly from any image in my pics folder when I first downloaded it.

Peter,

I'm assuming from the beginning that the "Resize..." context-menu appears
correctly when you right-click an image file, and the resize dialog opens.
But nothing happens when you select a dimension, and press OK. Correct me if
I'm wrong.

Not exactly. I go to My Pictures folder. Right-clicking any image and opt
for Resize, no menu appears, (neither is it a choice in "Open with", but
that's expected I believe). If I opt for Preview and then choose Resize,
the options appear OK.

Then I'm sorry you did not explain the problem clearly.

I asked "And, do you see the dialog box when you click the "Resize..."
context menu/" and you indicated yes. That caused me look into a different
route entirely.

Well, for the current problem, I'd investigate using ShellExView. Use Method
2 here:

Peter,

Download ShellExView and run it. It will scan the registry for all the
installed shell extensions. Once the scan is over and the list is displayed,
you need to spot the context menu handlers. Sort the results using "Type",
so that the context menu handlers are displayed together. (
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/images/shellexview.png )

Disable the third-party context menu handlers (Scroll right to see the
Company Name column) *one-by-one* and verify if the problem is solved. If
disabling one does not solve the problem, undo the disabled item and disable
the next non-Microsoft handler. Do the same until the problem is solved and
finally identify the culprit.

Ramesh, I'll live with it. All I have to do is that one extra step of
previewing the image first.

No problem Peter. BTW, I've just found that ShellExView does not enumerate
the items in this location:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers

Only one context-menu handler is present under that key, by default.
"ShellImagePreview". The other one is "PhotoResize" added by the Image
Resizer PowerToy. If you've anything else there, that _might_ be causing the
problem.
