    Anyone know a simple stupid image resizer/printer? All I want to do is send a photo off to the printer that fills the page, whether it's too small, or too big it automatically sizes and rotates the page to use up the most of the 8.5x11 piece of paper. Right now I'm using photoshop but I'd like to throw it on someone else's computer - even better would be a right click contect menu type of program.

    Unpossible?

    In XP, Right Click the Image file in explorer or My computer, select print, and then follow the on screen options and hit next. Should do everything you want and with ease :)

    ^^ that works the best for XP...

    If you are not running XP, most image viewing/printing programs have an option somewhere on the print menu to fit to page. It works well, for a large image, but I'm not sure about enlarging a smaller one...

    HTH.

    I've never used XP, so I don't know about that, but what I've used on several occaisions is IrfanView (available for free off download.com). It's pretty handy, especially since it can do batch processing.
